OVHcloud has announces its new private and secure interconnection offer to support enterprises’ multicloud and hybrid cloud projects. OVHcloud Connect solutions are based on the expertise of Europe’s leading cloud provider in terms of networks, as well as a strong partnership developed with leading interconnection providers Equinix and Megaport.

The adoption of multicloud (combining multiple vendors) and hybrid cloud (combining private, public and/or on-premise cloud environments) strategies has not finished animating the current
IT discussions. In addition to the benefits of each approach, there is also the question of maximizing business continuity or providing greater freedom of choice to orchestrate a tailored
set of services.

OVHcloud intends to facilitate access to these technologies by unveiling OVHcloud Connect Provider, a solution developed in partnership with Equinix and Megaport. OVHcloud Connect
Provider simplifies the implementation of a multicloud or hybrid architecture by interconnecting different enterprise cloud environments with OVHcloud data centers around the world.

At the same time, the Group announces the public launch of the OVHcloud Connect Direct solution. This is the most secure way to build a decentralized hybrid cloud, through direct and
private connections between OVHcloud data centers and the customer’s on-premise information system.

A better access to the multicloud reinforced by strong partnerships
With this announcement, OVHcloud is strengthening its global presence in partnership with Equinix, the global leader in infrastructure hosting, and Megaport, the global leader in cloud
connectivity services. OVHcloud customers will now be able to rely on a global coverage of more than 700 points of presence to interconnect their services with the providers of their choice.

Conversely, OVHcloud increases its visibility at Equinix and Megaport points of presence. An opportunity for enterprises worldwide to combine their existing infrastructures with an open, reversible, and interoperable cloud.

“We are very pleased to develop our partnership with OVHcloud and to continue to support this European cloud leader in their growth over the last 10 years. The availability of OVHcloud Connect on the Equinix platform will help accelerate the adoption of OVHcloud by enterprises that use the cloud for increasingly mission-critical applications. This direct interconnection facilitates the implementation of innovative hybrid and multi-cloud architectures through very high performance and the flexibility to create connections to OVHcloud anywhere in the world  in a few minutes. The addition of OVHCloud to our portfolio enables us to complement our existing Cloud offerings,” says Nicolas Roger, Director, Global Solutions Architects at Equinix.

“Our integration with OVHcloud Connect makes it easy for businesses to bypass the internet and privately connect to OVHcloud in real-time from more than 700 Megaport enabled data centres globally. Megaport’s point-and-click portal enables customers to provision secure, scalable connections that empower multicloud, hybrid cloud, and cloud-to-cloud architectures in minutes. We are excited to partner with OVHcloud to bring their powerful cloud solutions to more enterprises in more locations around the world,” said Matt Simpson, Vice President of Cloud Product at Megaport.

More and more choices for businesses

Customers who wish to interconnect their services with OVHcloud Connect can choose between several options – from the number of private links to the traffic capacity for each of them (from 200 Mpbs to 10 Gbps). Traffic on the OVHcloud network is included in the displayed tariffs, making costs transparent and predictable for the customer.

“While hybridisation and multicloud have become the basis of corporate cloud strategies, their deployment and use remain too inaccessible for all companies. With OVHcloud Connect, we
want to bring, as close as possible to our customers, the simplest and most secure network solutions, based on a solid collaboration with our partners Equinix and Megaport. By combining OVHcloud Connect solutions and the virtual private network available to all our
customers (vRACK), we can guarantee our customers a private and totally secure connection to all OVHcloud services,” comments Alain Fiocco, Chief Technology Officer of the OVHcloud Group.

The OVHcloud Connect solutions currently allow customers to connect privately and from anywhere in the world to the OVHcloud infrastructure in Europe. These solutions will soon be available in Canada, Australia, Singapore and the United States.
