Warsaw, Singapore, and Sydney, OVHcloud Opens 3 New Data Centers to Respond to the Growing Demand for Cloud Infrastructures

Reston, VA - October 11 - 2016 -  Under the code names WaW, SNG, and SYD, the cloud leader is opening 3 data centers in Poland, Australia, and Singapore, corresponding to the first wave of new data centers announced at Summit 2015. These installations permit OVH to support its customers in their global expansion and respond to the growing demand for outsourced digital infrastructures throughout the world.

Having digital resources as close as possible to the key markets of business activity or entering new markets has become a major issue for the success of a project. OVHcloud customers have confirmed this, expressing their wish to host their services in their own countries and/or in new geographical areas. OVHcloud, which has 1 million customers throughout more than 130 countries, thus decided to deploy new data centers around the globe.

Introductory offers adapted to each market
To allow users to discover and test its services in each new data center, OVHcloud has designed exclusive offers. Available in limited quantities, the “Discovery Offers” provide the best price/quality ratio in each market.

Performance is made possible through the ability to industrialize and the infrastructure of the OVHcloud network. The hosting leader relies on its own global network with a capacity of 7.3Tbps to guarantee optimal latency and security. Redundant, it offers 32 points of presence worldwide, making it possible to deliver guaranteed bandwidth at competitive rates, even in areas where bandwidth is very costly, like in Asia.

All services proposed in the new data centers include the same anti-DDoS protection that is standard with all OVHcloud offers and free of charge. The teams have put in place anti-DDoS infrastructures in each of the data centers they operate.

Hybrid Cloud (vRack) will permit the interconnection of services around the world, in an isolated manner as well as the possibility to build complex private networks between multiple data centers worldwide.

Each month, depending on the country, new services will be added to the product portfolio: Dedicated Server range, VPS, Public Cloud, Private Cloud, and Cloud Web. OVHcloud plans to make all of its solutions available to its customers worldwide via a Control Panel and API, in order to optimize the user experience.

Next data centers in the USA and Europe
In addition to the opening of the three data centers today, seven others are expected by the end of 2017, in the United States, Germany, Italy, Spain, England, and the Netherlands.

At the close of 2016, the data center in Virginia, on the east coast of the United States is scheduled to be in production. Announcements concerning the west coast are planned for early 2017.

As for Germany and England, work is underway on facilities located near Frankfurt and London. The first commercial offers are expected in May 2017.

The prospecting phase continues in Spain and Italy while opening a data center in the Netherlands is scheduled for the end of 2017.

This announcement brings the total number of OVHcloud data centers in service to 20. Once its deployment plan is completed, OVHcloud will offer its customers a choice from among 27 data centers throughout 11 countries on 3 continents.
