Even in our mature market, businesses still have more questions than answers for choosing a cloud partner. They are either evaluating how to move to the cloud or (having already moved) they are experiencing shock at the larger than expected bills. Whichever is the case, they often don’t know who to call when they need help.
It is with great pleasure that I can announce that OVH will take on those challenges to become the global partner of choice. Today, we announce OVH’s intent to acquire the VMware’s vCloud® Air™ business, customers, employees, and technology. We look forward to strong growth as we continue to support the vCloud Air use cases of: data center extension, data center consolidation, and data center recovery – with the same sales and support teams that you have grown to trust.
For 18 years, OVH has provided innovative cloud services that really are better, faster, and less costly than the alternatives. With today’s announcement and elevated partnership with VMware, OVH will not only provide Private Cloud, but a full suite of Public Cloud services and Dedicated Servers for your needs. This is in addition to preparing OVH’s 26 global data centers (with green, water-cooled tech) across four continents, 32 points of presence and thousands of miles of dark fiber connecting those data centers to welcome your workloads. Most cloud companies tell you they have the best products for the best value. OVH actually delivers on that promise!
OVH is proud to welcome the sales, support, account management, and infrastructure operations teams from vCloud Air to OVH’s 1600+ employees. We’re excited to add to our collective knowledge of supporting the cloud and VMware technology and we’re ready to be the best service-oriented team around. When you need help, we’ll be there for you. We love to help our clients be successful!
We look forward to getting acquainted and being at your service!
Onward and Upward!
CEO, OVH US
