Global infrastructure provider to build Singapore data center

17 Oct 2016

One of Europe’s largest cloud infrastructure providers, OVH, is establishing data centers in Singapore and Sydney with the aim to cater to growing cloud infrastructure demand.

OVH says that the new installations will allow the company to support its customers in their global expansion and respond to the need for outsourced digital infrastructures throughout the world.

The organisation has designed exclusive offers adapted to each market to give users a chance to discover and test its services within the new data centers.

Discover Offers will be available to provide the best price and quality ratios.

“Performance is made possible through the ability to industrialize and the infrastructure of the OVH network. The hosting leader relies on its own global network with a capacity of 7.3 Tbps to guarantee optimal latency and security,” a company statement read.

“It offers 32 points of presence worldwide, making it possible to deliver guaranteed bandwidth at competitive rates, even in locations like Asia where bandwidth cost is high.”

All of the services within the new data centers include the same anti-DDoS protection that is a standard with all of OVH offerings. The company affirms that its teams have put in place anti-DDoS infrastructures in each of the data centers they operate.

“Hybrid Cloud (vRack) will permit the interconnection of services around the world, in an isolated manner as well as the possibility to build complex private networks between multiple data centers worldwide.”

Within the next few weeks, OVH says users can expect a local offer in Singapore and Australia with the APAC office based in Melbourne.
