OVHcloud has released its Hosted Private Cloud Premier offering, with a focus on providing competitive performance, security, isolation and location of data.

OVHcloud specialises in scalable and highly automated infrastructure that meets professional requirements for operating critical environments and performing intensive workloads.

The Group also offers a wide range of certifications, addressing the needs of the financial sector in order to comply with the PCI Security Council standards (PCIDSS) or the European healthcare sector (HDS, the trusted certification for hosting health data).

This new generation of Hosted Private Cloud is the result of a close collaboration with OVHcloud's technology partners, since it integrates multiple divisions of hardware and software.

It offers a choice of new components - including the latest generation of Intel CPUs where network and storage are completely redesigned. These innovations are now integrated into production.

In addition, OVHcloud's customers can benefit from the integration, managed services support and consultation of an ecosystem of 800 certified OVHcloud Partner Program partners to support them implement these innovative solutions, according to the company.

Accessible to all OVHcloud customers around the world, Hosted Private Cloud Premier offers companies a wide range of solutions with specific advantages, the company states.

This includes a broader range of seven standard hosts, complemented by three new hyperconverged host references that rely on VMware vSAN technology and range from 48GB to 768GB of RAM, for better performance and reduced latency, especially suited for critical applications.

In addition, it brings NFS datastores up to 36TB, providing storage capacity at that allows professionals to store data in the data centers of their choice (seven locations worldwide).

It also brings private and public network access with more capacity - up to 25 Gbps to improve application performance, and a full range of VMware software: vCenter, vSphere version 6.7 (Enterprise Plus license), vSAN, and NSX.

Hosted Private Cloud Premier also integrates VMware's vRealise Operations brick at no additional cost to facilitate access to infrastructure monitoring and capacity planning.

The Hosted Private Cloud offering is based on the foundation of VMware standards.

OVHcloud CEO Michel Paulin says, "This launch paves the way for a new era of the Hosted Private Cloud, as well as the diversification of virtualisation solutions.

"Our ambition is to provide efficient, simple and accessible solutions that allow the right balance between price, performance, security, sovereignty and predictability of costs.

OVHcloud has recently been recognised as a leader in the European market for Hosted Private Cloud in the latest report The Forrester Wave: Hosted Private Cloud Services In Europe, Q2 2020.

Its network of 19 data centers in Europe, as well as the isolation of the Groups European offer from the Cloud Act, was noted as contributing to the company's success. The pricing criteria achieved the highest score possible.
