OVHcloud in joint cooperation with Atos will create a public cloud solution that will be deployed in Atos’ data centers in France to provide a 100 percent European cloud platform. Theis European cloud platform will be the result of combining OVHcloud Datacenter as-a-Service to enable IaaS and PaaS capabilities with Atos bare metal, cybersecurity, and decarbonization solutions.
By merging OVHcloud Public Cloud with the Atos Digital Hybrid Cloud solution for Private Cloud, Atos clients will have access to hybrid cloud configurations. Clients would be able to take advantage of public cloud capabilities, completely sovereign cloud management services, comprehensive regulatory compliance, and “world-class” cybersecurity protection as a result of the combined offering.
“We are happy to work with Atos and to bring together our sovereign solutions to provide our customers with more and more secure alternatives for their business,” said Michel Paulin, CEO at OVHcloud. “Atos’ best-in-class data centers, cybersecurity and critical systems products will enable us to enrich our portfolio. Both companies are strengthening their collaboration and it brings additional value to our customers.”
A cooperative project has been initiated to look into how OVHcloud clients in France may benefit from the footprint of Atos data centers in order to provide cloud solutions near to their operations. OVHcloud offers numerous Datacenter as-a-Service options based on its more than 20 years of expertise developing data center facilities, manufacturing servers, and maintaining a wide portfolio of IaaS and PaaS services.
Furthermore, Atos and OVHcloud are working together on new cooperative R&D efforts for future platform evolutions:
- Atos and OVHcloud plan to expand the OVHcloud BareMetal solution portfolio by establishing proof-of-concepts using Atos BullSequana S servers, which are geared for SAP and critical workloads.
- OVHcloud as-a-Service will test Atos Quantum computing simulation technologies in the OVHcloud Datacenter, using its Quantum Learning Machine. The goal is to provide quantum computing access to researchers and students.
“We are delighted to expand our partnership with OVHcloud to provide a sovereign cloud offering for our French customers,” said Pierre Barnabé, Interim co-CEO and Head of Big Data and Security, Atos. “Working with OVHcloud, we will reinforce the uniqueness of Atos OneCloud Sovereign Shield portfolio by creating a 100% European cloud solution for French organizations. This is a great step in that we are now, finally, able to offer SecNumCloud qualified OVHcloud solutions to our customers.”
By delivering carbon emission reporting for sustainable cloud computing, including the combined Atos and OVHcloud solutions, OVHcloud will help Atos meet its commitment to provide Decarbonization Level Agreements.
Clients of OVHcloud will be able to directly use the Atos MyC02Compass carbon data platform to help them achieve their net-zero goals. Atos MyC02Compass manages and reports carbon data across a wide range of digital devices and covers all aspects of a customer’s carbon footprint.
