OVH.com reinforces its growth in North America


In its effort to reach the top ranking position, OVH.com has launched last year a major challenge to establish itself as the market leader in North America. An ambitious goal that has already bore fruit in only a few months. Since its initial launch last year, OVH has attracted a large number of customers looking for effective and innovative solutions. In order to meet the needs of increasing demand for its services, OVH.com is planning another year of significant investments, as well as the launch of major new products and services



Constantly innovating

In 2014, OVH.com will celebrate 15 years of operations in Europe – and its first year in North America – with solutions that have already united a large user community in Europe. OVH has significantly expanded its product range in the last few months: adding anti-DDoS protection to their dedicated server line, launching the Dedicated Cloud solutions (a complete virtual datacenter) and hybrid infrastructures (with vRack 1.5).

Constantly innovating

2014 promises to be another year rich in innovations for OVH.com. To respond effectively to the needs of its customers, new solutions will be introduced this year that include VPS, public Cloud, Dedicated Cloud for Microsoft Hyper-V, Big Data clusters, a new server family and domain names. The first new products will be unveiled in the upcoming weeks.

Large scale investments

To meet growing demand, last year OVH North America built 2 hosting towers capable of housing 10,000 servers each. Today OVH has nearly 15,000 servers in production at its “BHS” (Beauharnois, Canada) datacenter. BHS datacenter has the capacity to one day house 360,000 servers. During the first quarter of 2014, a third tower will be built combining the know-how of local partners and OVH.com’s latest innovations in energy efficient technologies. As a result, the Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of this datacenter will still be one of the lowest in the world. In addition, by controlling the entire Web hosting chain (from building the datacenter to the maintenance of servers), OVH.com is able to significantly lower its costs, passing the savings to its customers with very competitive prices.

Large scale investments

Finally, 2014 will also be synonymous with growth of our team in North America. The company plans to hire many new employees to keep pace with the production level in its datacenters, to expand the staffing capacity of its Montreal office, to better assist the further development of its activities in the region.
