BrandPost: Cloud Migration: Experts to Emulate
With more than a million customers and over 360,000 custom-designed physical servers deployed worldwide, France-based OVH is one of the world’s largest cloud service providers. Started in 1999, this French company has grown quickly.
To learn more about their rapid ascent via their cloud strategy and their relationship with VMware, we spoke with Laurent Allard, OVH Vice-Chairman, and Nicolas Savides, VP of Strategy and Partnerships at OVH.
Why have they largely avoided the limelight in the United States? “We’re just developing our U.S. domestic market now,” says Allard. “We’re big in France, and the No. 1 cloud provider in Europe overall. We’ve started extending our business into Canada, Singapore, and Australia, and with vCloud Air we are now rapidly growing in the U.S. market as well”, he adds.
