Barcelona, 04th November 2019

At the VMworld Europe event in Barcelona, OVHcloud announced its acceleration on the key accounts market. The alternative cloud player is always adapting its product and service offerings to better anticipate its customers’ and prospects’ strategic needs.

To meet the requirements of IT decision-makers, OVHcloud relies on its ‘smart’ cloud philosophy: a simple, multi-local, accessible, reversible and transparent cloud. In its Enterprise product universe, OVHcloud has grouped together solutions that are best adapted to the most critical enterprise projects —multi-cloud transitions, datacentre extensions and migrations, big data projects and disaster recovery plans.

To help enterprises build a multi-cloud infrastructure while maintaining full control and reversibility for their data, Europe’s alternative player on the cloud market offers a range of solutions as part of its Hosted Private Cloud solutions, based on VMware technology.

“Over the last 10 years we have established a trusted relationship with OVHcloud as they’ve grown into one of Europe’s most secure, scalable and successful hyperscale clouds ,” said Ajay Patel, senior vice president and general manager, Cloud Provider Software Business Unit, VMware. “OVHcloud has created a unique value proposition for highly regulated industries such as national, local and regional governments, healthcare and financial services where data compliance and sovereignty are particularly sensitive. Through the VMware Cloud Provider Platform, OVHcloud provides customers with consistent infrastructure and operations that can lower costs, improve business agility and reduce risk for their customers.”

Custom support at the heart of OVHcloud’s key account strategy

In addition to its product offerings, OVHcloud also announced that it has reorganised its support levels, with greater levels of support aimed at key accounts. The objective of this is to meet the requirements of companies with the very highest demands. Enterprise support is now custom, and available 24/7. Whether customers face a technical challenge, have questions regarding solutions and financial aspects, or are looking for help optimising their services, OVHcloud’s internal team of experts support them at every stage of their projects.

The OVHcloud Partner Program has been added to Enterprise support, and was launched internationally in September 2019. This program is aimed at companies who help their own customers migrate to OVHcloud solutions as resellers, and also at companies providing services such as integration, outsourcing, and consultancy. As Europe’s leading cloud provider and a pure player in Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), it is only natural for its ecosystem to contain many partners who can bring their own added value to cloud, web and telecom solutions designed and sold by OVHcloud.

Alcatel Lucent Enterprise and Villeroy & Boch have joined the OVHcloud Enterprise ecosystem

The Enterprise solution has already attracted a number of key accounts across a wide range of sectors such as healthcare, banking and finance, retail, and service providers.

The Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise Rainbow UCaaS & CPaaS solution offers a comprehensive communication platform used every day by millions of customers globally, and is trusted in highly sensitive environments such as the banking and healthcare sectors. The OVHcloud Hosted Private Cloud solution is a key platform for supporting their constantly growing activity. It offers excellent performance, global coverage, instant scalability, and reinforced levels of security for customer data.

Villeroy & Boch, a German manufacturer of porcelain products, also chose OVHcloud to build an infrastructure that could quickly and securely meet requirements for their transformation of in-store and online sales. OVHcloud migrated the entire fleet of Villeroy & Boch servers to a Hosted Private Cloud solution, so that it could offer them quicker response times and more agility. It could also provision them new resources for efficient peak loads. With OVHcloud as their sole cloud provider and the internal Villeroy & Boch teams maintaining full control over their new infrastructure, this solution has helped them boost automation, use hardware efficiently, benefit from flexibility with their resources, and optimise their IT management.
