In the aftermath of the fire that destroyed OVHcloud’s SBG2 data center in Strasbourg, France while significantly damaging their SBG1 data center, OVHcloud has now stated that 99% of its bare metal cloud services and 99% of its VPS hosting services in SBG3 and SBG4 have fully been restored. They’re still busy cleaning racks and servers in the SBG1 data center which takes about 7 hours a rack.
In the SBG1 data center, about 25% of OVHcloud’s bare metal cloud services are restored at the moment. The company expects to get 95% of its services in SBG1 back online by the end of coming week. For OVHcloud’s destroyed infrastructure in SBG1 and SBG2, the company is now offering equivalent or alternative services in their other data centers.
On the other side of the pond, OVHcloud’s U.S. subsidiary was able to share some more lighthearted news. OVHcloud has expanded the availability of its VPS hosting services for the U.S. market by adding VPS services in its Hillsboro, Oregon, data center. With four product offerings, including Value, Essential, Comfort and Elite, OVHcloud’s portfolio of VPS hosting solutions is designed to meet a wide range of customer needs and quickly scale up as those needs evolve.
East and West Coast Data Centers
“We’re incredibly excited to now offer VPS in both our east and west coast data centers. In line with OVHcloud values, this product significantly lowers the cost of entry and the total investment in virtual private infrastructure,” said Pascal Jaillon, OVHcloud Senior Vice President of Product and Digital Accounts. “OVHcloud’s VPS deliver an incredibly powerful experience thanks to Intel’s next-generation CPU architecture together with fast read and write speeds to the disk.”
As one of the largest hosting providers worldwide, OVHcloud has more than 380,000 dedicated servers installed its 31 data centers across 12 sites on four continents. The hosting company manufactures its own servers, while building its own data centers and deploying its own fiber-optic global network to achieve maximum end-to-end efficiencies.
