Global hosting provider OVH has launched the first step in on-demand software-defined data centers. Customers can now activate VMware NSX directly from OVH’s customer control panel with complete autonomy. Very soon the offer will be supplemented with additional infrastructure elements like VMware Virtual SAN storage as well as VMware vRealize Operations Management As-a-service.
OVH‘s Dedicated Cloud continues to evolve with the integration of VMware NSX network virtualization platform. VMware NSX will allow infrastructure managers to deploy, in just a few clicks, all the necessary components needed to build their platforms (firewall, LoadBalancer, private networks, etc.) as well as to define their security policies easily and directly from their vSphere console.
“OVH, 2015 Global Service Provider of the Year, continues to play an increasingly strategic role in our vCloud Air Network (vCAN) cloud provider eco-system” said Ajay Patel, Senior Vice-President Cloud Provider Software VMware. “The new capabilities being offered by OVH, along with the depth and breadth of software-defined data center solutions from VMware, gives customers an operational consistent, secure enterprise-class cloud solution.”
“Industrialization and automation of deployments are at the heart of our concerns,” said Miroslaw Klaba, VP R&D at OVH. “The integration of VMware NSX marks a new step towards ‘SDDC on demand.’ The Dedicated Cloud offer with VMware vSphere and VMware vCenter Server, offered as a service, was the start in delivering customers a turnkey solution.”
