OVH Global Expansion Continues with New US Datacentre


OVH, a global leader in cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), today announced acquisition of a new datacentre facility in the US. Located in Hillsboro, Oregon, this facility joins Vint Hill, Virginia as the second US datacentre, with a third North American datacentre located in Canada. These installations will allow OVH to support its more than one million customers’ needs for global presence and respond to the growing demand for outsourced digital infrastructures throughout the world.





451 Research predicted that cloud spending would reach $21.9 billion in 2016 and would grow to more than $44.2 billion by 2020. Existing cloud users are scaling their IT environments, while other businesses pursue IT modernisation by migrating to the Cloud for the first time. And of that demand, Global Industry Analysts estimates the US market is the largest – estimated to be worth at least $7.5 billion by 2020.

OVH uses its patented green technology to run datacentres with significantly less power. Proprietary water-cooled servers save energy on cooling and also enable the company to increase availability and efficiency of its servers, as a result of the efficient heat transfer technology.

“For years, leading tech companies have been trying to figure out how to cool their datacentres while saving energy and money,” said Pascal Jaillon, Vice President of Research & Development for OVH US. “Legacy datacentres have been using expensive forced air conditioning to cool servers. OVH’s innovation in datacentre cooling is just the first of many that will be introduced in this growing market.”

Coupled with Vint Hill’s east coast location, the new west coast datacentre will ensure redundancy and scale for US-based companies. Just 20 miles from Portland, the Hillsboro datacentre will house about 80,000 servers in 112,500 square feet. Announced in October, the Vint Hill datacentre is currently under construction and staffing up. Initial offers for businesses interested in expanding to the US datacentres are targeted to be available in summer from the Vint Hill location.

With this new location, OVH now has 23 datacentres around the world in 11 countries, spanning four continents. The Hillsboro datacentre extends the global fiber network, which delivers top performance with a capacity of 10+ Tbps ensuring optimal latency and security. To deliver a consistent level of service, OVH offers 32 points of presence worldwide and owns thousands of miles of fiber globally. All new datacentres include anti-DDoS protection free of charge.
