Seamless transition to the cloud

Mitigating security risk in the cloud

Our Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) approach keeps your data secure with isolated virtual machines, an agnostic and reversible cloud platform, and hosted data protection for confidentiality.

The resources you acquire are allocated to you alone. We never over-allocate resources. Translation: You won’t experience the “noisy neighbor” effect. OpenStack allows you to manage and automate cloud provider operations without concern for the age and type of hardware. Every data center around the world is safeguarded by
OVHcloud Anti-DDoS protection to keep your infrastructure secure.

And when you invite your customers to your new platform, you will possess the confidence you are supplying them the best possible experience.
