OVHcloud is partnering with Google Cloud to help European organisations with data controls, security, transparency and privacy while deploying cloud native applications. OVHcloud will introduce a new Hosted Private Cloud offering by bringing Google’s open source-compatible Anthos technology to its own highly scalable dedicated infrastructure, fully operated and managed in Europe by OVHcloud teams.
There is an ongoing need for cloud providers to protect customers’ data with greater levels of security and privacy, inspectability and survivability. In response, OVHcloud and Google Cloud are developing an open source, transparency, interoperability and reversibility solution.
Open Source: a building block to widen the European ecosystem
The two companies plan to build joint solutions that empower customers to draw all the benefits of a multi-cloud and open approach, as well as drive a critical ecosystem of third-party developers.
“We are proud to partner with Google Cloud to jointly deliver innovative solutions that will meet Europe’s growing requirements for data sovereignty. This is a significant step forward to create new value for the European Market. Combining cutting edge technologies for the developers’ community while strengthening a powerful ecosystem of players united by a common set of values is core to OVHcloud. This partnership opens the doors to wide new possibilities, we are therefore glad to enable it together,” said Michel Paulin, CEO at OVHcloud.
“We are excited to sign our first partnership of this kind with OVHcloud, “said Thomas Kurian, CEO at Google Cloud. “Listening to our customers, partners and policymakers in Europe, we understand their need for even greater control and autonomy. We address this in many ways and look forward to continuing to deliver on our customer commitments in a meaningful way with a partner with whom we share values of trust, innovation, collaboration, openness, security, interoperability, transparency, and environmental responsibilities to jointly add value and help our customers accelerate their digital transformation.”
