OVH pushes forward in the UK market with a new flagship product

Europe’s largest cloud hosting provider, OVH, is today expanding its UK portfolio with the launch of its new Private Cloud solution: Software-Defined Datacentre (SDDC). SDDC is now available through OVH’s recently-opened London datacentre.

The company’s flagship product SDDC offers UK businesses a market-leading solution that combines dedicated hardware with the scalability and flexibility of the cloud, all virtualised using VMware technology. Both the hardware and virtualisation are fully managed by OVH and can be deployed within 60 minutes, via the company’s website.

The SDDC solution, recognised as a breakthrough innovation in the datacentre market, opens up a new way of managing infrastructure in three key areas: datacentre extension, datacentre replacement and datacentre recovery.

OVH Private Cloud complies with the ISO 27001, CSA STAR, SOC I and II type 2 and offers UK businesses the best price-performance ratio available today. For ease of budgeting, the pricing is fixed, and the packages all include VMware licences, unlimited traffic and guaranteed bandwidth within its 15Tbps+ network.

A considerable number of OVH’s UK customers already use SDDC in other datacentre locations and the company predicts high demand for the product in London thanks to the value it adds. This includes the highly competitive price-performance ratio and local hosting capabilities.

“The launch of SDDC in our London datacentre demonstrates our continued commitment to the UK market,” said Hiren Parekh, MD at OVH UK. “OVH Private Cloud is our flagship product and, thanks to SDDC, is being made available with latest vSphere 6.5 system, as well as a host of new configurations. We are now able to provide our UK customers with local hosting, lower latency and the latest performance-enhancing technology.”

UK businesses now have the opportunity to access VMware technologies in a fully managed infrastructure with an OPEX approach. SDDC offers greater cost savings and an optimised total cost of ownership for companies looking to virtualise or to switch from legacy to the Cloud.

“If a business is planning on scaling up its infrastructure in the near future, I’d definitely steer them towards SDDC. It doesn’t just offer plenty of scope for scalability,  it provides all the tools that teams need to upscale in a manageable, well-considered way. SDDC helps make scaling up a strategic process rather than a reactive one,” said Remy Vandepoel, OVH Private Cloud expert.
