Cloud provider OVH is set for global expansion of its public cloud service through two additional Asia Pacific (APAC) data centres, located in Singapore and Sydney.
The addition of these two regions brings the total number of OVH public cloud locations from six to eight, spanning four continents.
In addition to Singapore and Sydney, the provider operates its public cloud services in Warsaw, London, Frankfurt, Beauharnois (Canada) and in Strasbourg and Gravelines (France).
“Delivering a fast and reliable service to our customers is paramount to everything we do at OVH,” said Michel Paulin, CEO, OVH. “By adding public cloud regions in APAC, we commit to develop in this region of the world and aim to support the local cloud users’ growth.
"It aligns with our multi-local strategy, placing data centres physically closer to local end-users. It also benefits our EMEA customers looking to do business in APAC, where OVH has operated since 2016."
The addition of these two zones brings improved resilience, better connection speeds and faster data transfer to regional customers.
Furthermore, customers in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) are set to benefit too, through the added capability go deploy public cloud resources in APAC.
“It is exciting to see a pioneer in open infrastructure like OVH operating OpenStack at scale on four continents, with more than 260,000 instances,” said Mark Collier, COO, OpenStack Foundation.
“OVH’s involvement in the OpenStack community since 2014 has proven that open collaboration works, and we look forward to their continued success as they expand into APAC this year.”
As the provider’s public cloud service is bases on OpenStack open-source software, it is not just intuitive to use but also easy to deploy.
The new regions will include access to OVH 16 Tbps worldwide network and free anti-DDoS by default.
Furthermore, the provider intends on maintaining a competitive price model for a range of enterprises through proposing a large portfolio starting from balanced CPU/RAM instances (for web or business applications) to high compute performances (perfect for large databases and big data) and passing through GPU instances (designed for AI applications).
Also available to users will be the provider’s vRack service, which makes it possible to connect worldwide services in an isolated way.
This service will be made available so users can build complex private infrastructures on a global multi-data centre level.
OVH manages and maintains 28 data centres in 12 sites across four continents and deploys its own global fibre optic network, and manages the entire supply chain for web hosting.
