Just three years after OVHcloud’s entry into the North American hosted private cloud services market, OVHcloud US has now been recognized by Forrester Research as a ‘strong performer’ in the just-released report, ‘The Forrester Wave: Hosted Private Cloud Services in North America, Q2 2020.’
The newly released report identifies OVHcloud US as one of the most significant hosted private cloud service providers. The report’s authors gave OVHcloud US the highest possible scores for its current hosted private cloud and bare metal server offerings in the criteria of permissions, storage options, and price scenarios. The company also received top score among strong performers (and tied for second highest amongst all vendors evaluated) in the strategy category, which includes vision for the future of hosted private cloud, execution roadmap, and market approach.
“Many companies offer hosted private cloud services, but only a few meet the high bar Forrester sets for inclusion in its Wave report,” said Jeffrey Gregor, General Manager of OVHcloud US. “We believe our placement on the Wave and accompanying analysis validate that we provide SMBs and enterprises an unbeatable combination of features, flexibility, price predictability, and performance – today and tomorrow.”
According to Forrester, hosted private cloud customers should look for providers that:
- Offer a breadth of infrastructure options, with an eye toward future innovations.
- Deliver strong SLAs, contractual protections, and regulatory compliance.
- Provide a positive experience, from initial onboarding to ongoing operations.
As the Wave report indicates, “Hosted private cloud retains its position in the hearts and minds of I&O professionals because it sits between the public and private cloud alternatives while offering at least some of the benefits of both. Customers also embrace hosted private cloud because of its stronger suitability for regulatory compliance and greater degree of control compared with public cloud.”
In the months between Forrester’s evaluation and report publication, OVHcloud US has continued to work on its strategic vision and product roadmap. The company’s “next-generation” hosted private cloud service offering will be released within the next few weeks, brining “even stronger features and performance that address a broader range of use cases for companies of all sizes that prioritize the security and isolation of cloud services.”
OVHcloud US is a subsidiary of OVHcloud, one of the largest global hosting providers which originates from France. As a cloud provider, the group specializes in delivering bare metal servers, hosted private cloud, hybrid and public cloud solutions.
