“The expansion of our Public Cloud offering will allow Public Cloud customers in the US to take full advantage of the flexibility of on-demand resources to scale up from small projects to larger-scale deployments,” said Jeffrey Gregor, General Manager of OVHcloud US.

OVHcloud’s Public Cloud delivers a full range of compute, storage, network and orchestration tools. It is one of the world’s largest Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions based on OpenStack.

OVHcloud now provides public cloud services in the United States from two regions including US-EAST-VA-1 and US-WEST-OR-1.

“The expansion of our Public Cloud offering with the availability of a second region (US-WEST-OR-1) in our Hillsboro data center will allow new and existing Public Cloud customers in the US to take full advantage of the flexibility of on-demand resources to scale up from small projects to larger-scale deployments,” said Jeffrey Gregor, General Manager of OVHcloud US. “By default, with OVHcloud Public Cloud, our customers get guaranteed resources, private networking capabilities, and multiple ways to manage their environment from one fully integrated OVHcloud Control Panel.”

The OVHcloud Public Cloud provides an extensive range of cloud solutions, including:

  • Compute Instances – Cloud instances can be deployed with guaranteed resources that cover a very wide range of uses. Users can explore a catalog of instance types. General Purpose instances would have a balanced distribution of resources and suit most uses. CPU instances, on the other hand, would be particularly powerful in terms of computing power. As for RAM instances, they offer a high volume of memory.
  • Object Storage – It allows users to get unlimited on-demand storage, accessible via API. They can upload their files to a space that they can access via HTTPS, using the OpenStack Swift API, including support for S3 API to “conveniently” migrate data from any providers. Objects have a software layer that manages metadata, access permissions and intelligent behaviors directly, at the data level.
  • Cloud Archive – Data can be archived over the long term while keeping it accessible via standard protocols. Whether it’s for achieving business goals or meeting legal obligations, long-term data retention can be a requirement. Two points would be important here: the cost of storage, which must be reduced, and data security and recovery, which must be guaranteed. OVHcloud’s Cloud Archive solution has been designed with this in mind.
  • Private Network – Users can deploy private networks supported by OVHcloud vRack to connect their instances across the globe. The emergence of software-defined networks (SDNs) in cloud infrastructures has given users increased flexibility when it comes to network management. In this spirit, OVHcloud Public Cloud lets its users design and build their network architecture on demand. By creating private networks, they can implement virtual switches that can hot-connect project instances “in real time, without any service interruptions.”

OVHcloud’s Public Cloud services come with access to OVHcloud’s 20 Tbps worldwide network and free anti-DDoS. These Public Cloud services are billed at an hourly pay-as-you-go rate or can be paid up-front at a monthly rate.
