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.
