How do OVHcloud data centers work?
As a cloud computing service provider, OVHcloud owns data centers that are used to store physical servers connected to the internet and hosting these services. Since cloud solutions are often the basis of a business, you need a professional service and IT resources (computing power, storage space) adapted to these uses. We design all of our infrastructures, from server production to deployment. We can also scale our infrastructures to fit customer requests (additional resources) and technical advancements (component changes, improvements, etc.).
Our data center infrastructures are designed to host thousands of servers in a minimal amount of space while optimizing features such as large-scale water-cooling for servers.
For customers, one of the key advantages of hosting in our data centers is the measures put in place to ensure constant service availability and optimal performance. To do this, we work with market players to select next-generation components and configure high-quality servers. These servers are then set up in rooms with hardware redundancy to prevent power outages, hardware failures, and any other unpredictable incidents.
Where are OVHcloud data centers located?
The location of data centers is a major factor for a hosting provider to consider. With an international customer base offering services across the globe, our solutions must be adaptable, and based as closely as possible to their users. Offering services in the country where you do business is a guarantee of trust, security and performance. This is why we have set up our data centers around the world, and continue to expand the geographical coverage of our solutions every day. You can find our data centers in these countries: France, Canada, USA, Australia, Germany, Poland, the UK and Singapore.
Data Center Security
We have full control over physical security in our data centers, as we are the sole operator. Access to buildings is limited and controlled in compliance with the very strictest standards and requirements, to ensure maximum security within the site. To access the premises and physical servers, only employees assigned to the building and carrying a badge are allowed to enter. 24/7 video surveillance and security ensure full control of each site.
Respect for the Environment
We all have a role to play in respecting the environment, and ours is to offer you solutions and services with the lowest possible environmental impact.
Hosting IT servers requires energy — and we are always looking for new ways to reduce this need, by optimizing and innovating our technology. Our water-cooling system, which we use to cool our entire infrastructure, is part of the innovative technology that helps us drastically reduce the power usage of our data centers.
