Strengthening the transatlantic link
The OVH Network Team is hard at work on reinforcing its own fiber optic network deployed around the world. Last March, we talked to you about installing a transatlantic link for OVH customers.

The Summit programme is online
The 4th edition of the OVH Summit will be taking place at the Docks de Paris on October 11.

RunAbove: NVMe disks for maximum performance
A revolutionary technology when it comes to storage, NVMe can provide a performance up to 5x better than the classic SSD disks. With a flash memory similar to SATA SSD disks, NVMe disks communicate directly with the CPU through PCI-express paths instead of the SATA bus. And just like all our other servers, these come with guaranteed bandwidth (250 Mbps) and the anti DDoS protection is included. Test the NVMe servers on RunAbove.

Public Cloud: creating private networks directly from the customer control panel
Creating private networks and linking a network to a new instance can now be done directly from the Public Cloud control panel. Advanced customization of these networks (DHCP customization, post-creation linking) is also available through the Openstack tools (API and web Horizon client provided by OVH). Those private networks can be used for communication not only between Public Cloud instances, but also with dedicated servers and the OVH Private Cloud among all datacenters across the group.
