Frank & Oak elected among the most innovative start-ups


Known to be an avant-garde of online commerce and user experience, Frank & Oak, a symbolic OVH client in North America, is among the top 10 most innovative start-ups in retail, according to Fast Company magazine.





Since its creation in 2012, the online clothing store works closely with OVH to support its ever increasing traffic (between 1 and 2 million monthly visitors). They focused their sights on the BIG HG server model from the Infrastructure range of servers, the most powerful range offered by the hosting provider. Each of its developers also uses a So you Start server allowing them to duplicate or clone the production infrastructure to provide a real testing platform.



This technological agility combined with attention to detail is reflected in the customer experience. Today, Frank&Oak have more that 1.5 million members, 30% of which shop online using the brand’s mobile application. And their galaxy is not finished growing, beyond the
Internet: boutiques in Montreal and Toronto, a print magazine and a blog have been launched last year.



In May of 2014 at the OVH World Tour, Montreal, we had the occasion to meet with Frank&Oak to discuss their projects and reasons for choosing OVH for their infrastructure.
