How can I use OVH Cloud Archive?

Continuous Backup

Use programs such as rsync to continuously synchronize your data and improve its durability. Combining OVH Public Cloud with our archiving solution’s continuous backup minimizes the amount of data lost in a failure.

Regular Backup

Schedule regular backups of your critical data. You decide how long to keep your backup history, from a specified number of days or until you choose to erase it manually.

Desktop Backup

Set up an automated backup tool, such as CrashPlan, on your workstation, and connect it to your OVH archiving account.

Thanks to the SCP and SFTP protocols, our archiving solution works with industry standards.

Easy-to-use archiving

Want to back up and restore large amounts of data at a low cost? OVH Public Cloud Archive lets you save all types of data — backups, logs, photos, videos, etc. — with no volume limits. You only pay for your traffic and the space you use. And because we combine IT standards such as rsync, SCP, and SFTP with OpenStack's Swift API, it takes just a few clicks and a few minutes to get your data archives up and running. By using the API or OVH Manager, you can create unlimited containers in the geographical area of your choice: GRA, BHS, SBG.

Data Durability

Data durability

Guaranteed data integrity is inherent to OVH data centers.


We have architected our solutions so you don’t need to worry. We store several copies of each file in redundant infrastructure, dividing the files into fragments, and writing each fragment within a different storage unit. Automated system constantly scrutinize the integrity of the data by checking each file.  If we detect a missing fragment, we automatically rebuild it through an algorithm using the other stored fragments.


In addition to APIs, OVH Public Cloud Archive uses protocols such as SFTP, rsync, SCP, and HTTPS to securely transfer your data.
