Hosted Private Cloud

Hosted Private Cloud | OVHcloud

Your private data center in the cloud

Need more resources to develop your business? Need to process sensitive data that requires strict security, confidentiality and a dedicated infrastructure?

With our Hosted Private Cloud solutions, you get a private infrastructure that is hosted and managed by our teams — leaving you to focus on your core business.

We combine the power of next-generation Intel® hardware with VMware® technology, to deliver you fully-isolated, dedicated environments that can handle the most critical workloads.

The best of VMware technology

Hosted Private Cloud has been designed with the same platform you are currently using for on-premises infrastructures — including vSphere, vCenter and NSX. Get more out of services you are already familiar with, built on a VMware foundation.

Dedicated hardware infrastructure

With a global infrastructure hosted across four continents, get high-performance dedicated resources available on demand, at an unbeatable price. Depending on how your requirements change over time, you can easily add and remove computing capacity and storage — without any compromise on performance.

Secure isolation

Since your servers are dedicated to your workloads, you can build a highly-available infrastructure across multiple host clusters. Replicate your data across data centers with a high-capacity private network, isolation rules and strict redundancy.

La puissance du harware dédié alliée à la souplesse du cloud

The power of dedicated hardware with the flexibility of cloud computing

Hosted Private Cloud combines the scalability of the cloud with a 100% dedicated hardware infrastructure. Our platform is virtualized using VMware technology. Simply create unlimited virtual machines (VMs) from the vSphere interface.

Composition de nos packs

What our packs include

Our starter packs include two hosts, which you can choose the size of — and two datastores for storing your data. These elements are entirely dedicated to you, and have a very high level of security. Migrate quickly to a private cloud hosted by OVHcloud.

The three pillars of self-service, dedicated platform

vSphere Enterprise Plus

The vSphere Enterprise Plus license is included, so that you can create and manage your virtual machines with total flexibility, on 100% dedicated resources.

vSAN Storage Virtualization Software

Integrate a hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) powered by vSAN, in addition to vSphere to improve business agility, speed of operations, and lower costs.


This network virtualization service works with NSX. It integrates a firewall, a load balancer, and security rules via vSphere.

Contact Us

We are here to help you get started. You may schedule a free consultation with an OVHcloud advisor to discuss an architecture that best suits your business needs. 

Why choose a Dedicated Cloud?

Standard technology and maximum industrialization

Immediate access to your dedicated infrastructure

When you order a Hosted Private Cloud solution, we deliver a dedicated infrastructure, pre-configured (vCenter) and ready-to-use via the vSphere interface. All you need to do is deploy your virtual machines.

Automatic replacement of your resources

You do not need to contact us if an incident occurs on any of your hosts. They are automatically replaced with identical or equivalent hosts with automatic rebooting for your VMs (with VMware High Availability feature included). Your infrastructure is available 24/7.

Additional resources available on demand

Need more hardware resources to create new VMs? You can add and remove data stores at any time. These resources are pre-configured, delivered to your infrastructure, and have both hourly and monthly billing options.

VMware virtualization

The power of vCenter and vSphere

Once you have placed an order for a Hosted Private Cloud solution, you can access it through vSphere hypervisor. From this interface, you can create VMs to suit your needs, projects, workloads, and much more.

This means you are not limited to a catalog of virtual machines. You can choose exactly what you need — vRAM, vCPU, storage capacity and network rules — for each VM deployment.

A long-standing partnership

Our partnership with VMware is the reason you can benefit from all of their technological innovations. This is also why the Hosted Private Cloud provides the best of VMware virtualization with vSphere, Software-Defined Network technologies with NSX, Software-Defined Storage with VSAN, and the advanced management solution vRealize Operations for full flexibility managing your infrastructure.

Customization with vSphere

With our VMware expertise, we can add features directly in vSphere. On top of adding and removing resources via the interface, you can also run outage simulations with the Resilience Test service to test your redundancy and reboot mechanisms.

The advantages of the cloud, and the comfort of a dedicated environment
