OVHcloud is a major public cloud infrastructure player: IDC

OVHcloud, the European cloud firm, has been named a major player in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Public Cloud Infrastructure as a Service 2022 Vendor Assessment. The IDC MarketScape evaluated 13 companies to assess strategies and capabilities.

According to the IDC MarketScape report, “OVHcloud has attractive and transparent pricing (e.g., it does not bill for API calls). It also has valuable service adjacency given it also offers dedicated private servers, web hosting, and hosted private clouds. This helps make it a one-stop shop for companies still early in their journey to the public cloud, as they can start the transition with OVHcloud using older deployment models and then maintain the same commercial relationship if and when they decide to move those workloads.”

The report also notes, “OVHcloud's roots as a European service provider also puts the company in the catbird seat for conversations about sovereign cloud and data residency, and indeed, it has baked these factors into its development approach for years. It has also made sustainability a strong focus for many years.”

From a portfolio standpoint, the IDC MarketScape notes the recent investments in building out software services higher up the stack in areas. These include artificial intelligence, machine learning, databases, and container orchestrations while continuing to court partners focused on commercial and open-source software to build its ecosystem.

IDC MarketScape vendor assessment model is designed to provide an overview of the competitive fitness of ICT (information and communications technology) suppliers in a given market. The research methodology utilises a rigorous scoring methodology based on qualitative and quantitative criteria, resulting in a single graphical illustration of each vendor's position within a given market. 

IDC MarketScape provides a clear framework in which the product and service offerings, capabilities and strategies, and IT and telecommunications vendors' current and future market success factors can be meaningfully compared. The framework also provides technology buyers with a 360-degree assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of current and prospective vendors.

“As the only European-based cloud provider represented in the Worldwide Public Cloud IaaS MarketScape, OVHcloud is uniquely positioned to address the needs of customers in that region and beyond," says Dave McCarthy, Research Vice President of cloud and edge infrastructure services at IDC. "

The company's investments in digital sovereignty and sustainability are well aligned to the requirements of global organisations."

“We are pleased to be named as a Major Player by the IDC MarketScape for Worldwide Public Cloud IaaS.” adds Michel Paulin, CEO of OVHcloud. 

“This assessment encourages us to further expand and accelerate our efforts in the field of PaaS to better meet our customers’ expectations all the while maintaining our positioning at the forefront of a trusted cloud, but also as pioneer for sustainable infrastructure.”

OVHcloud operates over 450,000 servers within 33 data centres across four continents, reaching 1.6 million customers in over 140 countries. 

Spearheading a trusted and sustainable cloud with the best price-performance ratio, the Group has been leveraging an integrated model that guarantees total control of its value chain - from the design of its servers to the construction and management of its data centres, including the orchestration of its fibre-optic network. This unique approach enables OVHcloud to independently cover all the uses of its customers so they can seize the benefits of an environmentally conscious model with a frugal use of resources and a carbon footprint reaching the best ratios in the industry.
