Cloud infrastructure provider OVHcloud has announced the launch of its new ‘Premier’ hosted private cloud product line in the United States. Like its hosted private cloud predecessor, OVHcloud Premier would offer a wider range of options. It would feature more RAM, greater bandwidth and more capacity on full solid-state disc data stores.
OVHcloud Premier would meet the needs of companies running operation-critical environments or intensive workloads. Companies that already have moved to the cloud or are in the midst of a full or partial migration. Their cloud deployments might be for disaster recovery, to extend their data centers or to account for peak spikes and cloud bursting.
“As enterprises transfer more assets to the cloud, demand for our hosted private cloud services continues to rapidly rise, and our solutions must keep pace,” said Jeffrey Gregor, General Manager of OVHcloud US. “The launch of the Premier line on the heels of our Forrester recognition demonstrates our commitment to accelerate the rate at which we innovate and deploy new products to market to best satisfy the needs of our customers.”
OVHcloud US hosted private cloud Premier leverages the VMware platform and comes complete with VMware vSphere with vCenter, NSX, and vRealize Operations. With OVHcloud Connect, companies that already rely on VMware can choose OVHcloud Premier and optimally balance their on-premises and cloud-based operations in a “seamless” transition.
In addition to compelling product features, Premier customers would reap the following benefits:
- ‘Reversibility and Flexibility’ – An open, standards-based architecture means businesses can build their freedom in the cloud, with no cloud vendor lock-in and the opportunity for multi-cloud deployments.
- ‘Reliability and Value’ – OVHcloud builds and owns the vast majority of its global infrastructure, from the bare metal servers that form the foundation of Premier hosts to its 30 data centers on 4 continents. The company’s 20 Tbit/s fiber-optic network also adds to that, connecting everything together for a vertically integrated infrastructure that works and performs.
- ‘Innovation and Automation’ – vRack technology allows private-network communication between customer servers housed in geographically dispersed data centers; DDoS protection technology comes standard and mitigates and eliminates threats before they affect performance; liquid cooling technology improves data center and server performance, protects the environment, and keeps costs down; and fault management technology identifies potential trouble and replaces hosts, without human intervention, before customer impact.
- ‘Security and Trust’ – OVHcloud infrastructure certifications, attestations and compliance programs include SSAE SOC1, SOC2, and SOC3; ISO 27001; PCI DSS; HIPAA; and GDPR.
