VMware on OVHcloud brings flexibility, security and cost control to the Hosted Private Cloud environment

OVHcloud, the European cloud leader, announces the rearchitecting of its VMware portfolio in the Hosted Private Cloud universe. Closely following the needs of system integrators, SaaS providers, SMB and Enterprises, the new VMware on OVHcloud product line aims to address the main challenges in moving legacy apps to the cloud, developing modern apps or setting up a multicloud strategy.

Leveraging technologies and architectures already used, trusted and known by customers, the VMware on OVHcloud lineup offers a seamless experience built on VMware vSphere. It is both robust and flexible and takes advantage of a large unmetered 10 Gbps guaranteed public bandwidth as well as an improved and industry leading SLA of 99.95% for higher availability and resilience. The VMware on OVHcloud range is now comprised of four products:
• OVHcloud Managed VMware vSphere
• OVHcloud Managed VMware vSphere, Hyperconverged Storage
• OVHcloud Managed VMware vSphere, Network Security
• OVHcloud Managed VMware vSphere, Software-Defined Datacenter
The perfect platform to migrate and build modern applications

The VMware on OVHcloud platform now allows application migration to the cloud without any refactoring, reducing risk and saving time, on top of the ability to perform infrastructure migration in lift & shift scenarios. It is ready to deploy VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid, making Kubernetes cluster management a breeze and paving the way for apps to evolve to a Cloud native model.

With VMware NSX-T available on select products, the overall security management of apps is streamlined, whatever their context (VM or Container). This also includes the ability to rely on a micro-segmentation strategy to reduce the risk of lateral movement attacks, such as ransomwares.

“We are extremely proud to introduce our new trusted and secure VMware on OVHcloud range. Leveraging a modern technical base, it has been carefully designed to answer the needs of our customers and support them when they migrate their apps to the cloud. Thanks to the latest innovations and VMware Tanzu compatibility, the complexity of Kubernetes is hidden to rapidly develop modern apps. If that wasn’t enough the VMware on OVHcloud lineup comes with a host of security certifications on our sustainable cloud.” said Thierry Souche, Chief Technology Officer OVHcloud.
