June 2023 by Marc Jacob
OVHcloud 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 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 Data Center
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 and 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 ransomware.
Staying in control of cloud spending
The rearchitected VMware on OVHcloud product line is designed to offer customers maximum flexibility, ensuring that they only pay for what they need. With costs rising around the world across most industries, and 80% of businesses concerned by the challenge of mastering cloud spending, this focus offers organizations the best possible performance–price ratio for their budgets and needs, further demonstrating the predictable pricing OVHcloud is known for.
