OVHcloud, the European cloud leader, announces the rearchitecting of its VMware portfolio in the Hosted Private Cloud universe. Closely following the needs of system integrators, SaaS providers, SMB, and Enterprises, the new VMware on OVHcloud product line aims to address the main challenges in moving legacy apps to the cloud, developing modern apps, or setting up a multicloud strategy.
Leveraging technologies and architectures already used, trusted, and known by customers, the VMware on OVHcloud lineup offers a seamless experience built on VMware vSphere. It is both robust and flexible and takes advantage of a large unmetered 10 Gbps guaranteed bandwidth as well as an improved and industry-leading SLA of 99.95% for higher availability and resilience. The VMware on OVHcloud range is now comprised of four products:
OVHcloud Managed VMware vSphere
OVHcloud Managed VMware vSphere, Hyperconverged Storage
OVHcloud Managed VMware vSphere, Network Security
OVHcloud Managed VMware vSphere, Software-Defined Data Center
The perfect platform to migrate and build modern applications
The VMware on OVHcloud platform now allows application migration to the cloud without any refactoring, reducing risk and saving time, on top of the ability to perform infrastructure migration in lift and shift scenarios. It is ready to deploy VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid, making Kubernetes cluster management a breeze and paving the way for apps to evolve to a Cloud Native model.
With VMware NSX-T available on select products, the overall security management of apps is streamlined, whatever their context (VM or Container). This also includes the ability to rely on a micro-segmentation strategy to reduce the risk of lateral movement attacks, such as ransomware.
"We are extremely proud to introduce our new trusted and secure VMware on OVHcloud range. Leveraging a modern technical base, it has been carefully designed to answer the needs of our customers and support them when they migrate their apps to the cloud. Thanks to the latest innovations and VMware Tanzu compatibility, the complexity of Kubernetes is hidden to rapidly develop modern apps. If that wasn't enough the VMware on OVHcloud lineup comes with a host of security certifications on our sustainable cloud," said Thierry Souche, CTO OVHcloud.
Staying in control of cloud spending
The rearchitected VMware on OVHcloud product line is designed to offer customers maximum flexibility, ensuring that they only pay for what they need. With costs rising around the world across most industries, and 80% of businesses concerned by the challenge of mastering cloud spending, this focus offers organizations the best possible performance–price ratio for their budgets and needs, further demonstrating the predictable pricing OVHcloud is known for.
A secure and sustainable offer
VMware on OVHcloud benefits from OVHcloud's well-known expertise in infrastructure, offering a trusted cloud in environmentally friendly data centers. Totally integrated with other OVHcloud services through vRack Private Network, VMware on OVHcloud addresses the most stringent workloads when it comes to sovereignty. Being labeled as a VMware Sovereign Cloud Provider, VMware on OVHcloud comes with a host of certifications including HIPPA, HDS, PCI-DSS, and the SecNumCloud qualification delivered by France's National Information Systems Security Agency (ANSSI).
OVHcloud data centers take advantage of a unique industrial model with a bespoke water-cooling system that contributes to a truly sustainable cloud, which allows customers to reach best-in-class PUE/WUE indexes. Greatly participating in helping businesses to reach their goals in sustainability, the VMware on OVHcloud offer is VMware Zero Carbon Committed certified.
Pricing and availability
All in all, the new VMware on OVHcloud lineup offers an unprecedented level of flexibility at the software and hardware levels, boasts one of the best performance-price ratios of the industry, and benefits from a technical foundation designed to answer modern businesses challenges including cloud cost control.
OVHcloud is a global player and the leading European cloud provider operating over 450,000 servers within 37 data centers across four continents to reach 1.6 million customers in over 140 countries. Spearheading a trusted cloud and pioneering a sustainable cloud with the best price-performance ratio, the Group has been leveraging for over 20 years an integrated model that guarantees total control of its value chain: from the design of its servers to the construction and management of its data centers, including the orchestration of its fiber-optic network. This unique approach enables OVHcloud to independently cover all the uses of its customers so they can seize the benefits of an environmentally conscious model with a frugal use of resources and a carbon footprint reaching the best ratios in the industry. OVHcloud now offers customers the latest-generation solutions combining performance, predictable pricing, and complete data sovereignty to support their unfettered growth.

StackPath, the industry-leading edge computing platform, today announced new, larger StackPath Edge Compute Virtual Machine and Container instances featuring higher virtual CPU (vCPU) core counts and included RAM. These larger instances give businesses the computing power that data-intensive workloads require, deployed at the edge of the internet for the lowest latency between processing and data sources and destinations.
"Enterprises increasingly need to leverage real-time data for a myriad of reasons, from improving end-user experiences to gaining deeper business insights. But real-time data applications require high processing power, and getting cloud computing with that level of power has historically come with the cost of latency, centralization, and excessive bandwidth charges," said Tom Reyes, Chief Product Officer for StackPath. "These new, larger compute instances deliver the best of both worlds, pairing cloud computing power with the speed, scalability, and control that makes edge computing an essential facet of any latency-sensitive, distributed workload's deployment strategy."
StackPath provides virtual machines and computing containers on demand, with full orchestration for rapidly provisioning distributed resources. Unlike most hyper-scale cloud computing providers, StackPath deploys its facilities within the metropolitan areas of major markets around the world, placing its instances physically closer to businesses' premises and their end users. This reduces latency by minimizing the distance data has to travel. Private network connections between StackPath locations provide even more speed advantages for workload data commuting between geographic regions.
The new virtual machine instances sizes are:
16 vCPUs x 64GiB RAM x 25GiB Root Disk
32 vCPUs x 128GiB RAM x 25GiB Root Disk
48 vCPUs x 256GiB RAM x 25GiB Root Disk
The new container instances sizes are:
16 vCPUs x 64GiB RAM x 40GiB Root Disk
32 vCPUs x 128GiB RAM x 40GiB Root Disk
48 vCPUs x 256GiB RAM x 40GiB Root Disk
StackPath Edge Compute instances are provisioned on demand through the StackPath Customer Portal or API. Instances are billed by the hour and by the volume of data transferred. Additional options include forming virtual private clouds and leveraging built-in L3-L4 DDoS protection, persistent storage, image capture and deployment, private IP addresses, and more. To learn more or get started, visit http://www.stackpath.com.
StackPath is a cloud platform built at the internet's edge, providing infrastructure and services physically closer to the source or destination of data than hyperscale cloud service providers. StackPath Edge Compute (including virtual machines and containers), Edge Delivery (including CDN and serverless scripting), and Edge Security (including WAF and L3-L4, L7 DDoS Protection) solutions run in edge locations strategically deployed in high-density markets and united by a secure global network and a single management system. Customers ranging from Fortune 50 enterprises to one-person startups trust StackPath to give their latency-sensitive workloads and real-time applications the speed, security, and efficiency they require.
