Expand your reach with OVHcloud datacentres
With our OVHcloud Connect hybrid connection solution, you can form a secure, high-performance link between your company network and the OVHcloud vRack.
Data is transferred through our infrastructures via our Direct solution, and you get a dedicated connection with 1Gbit/s or 10Gbit/s bandwidth.
You can also choose our Provider solution, with one of our partners (Equinix, Megaport and more to come). With this solution, you get from 200Mbit/s to 5Gbit/s bandwidth, and even more global coverage.
A connection between your network and OVHcloud infrastructures, compatible with all of our cloud solutions. You get between 200Mbit/s and 10Gbit/s guaranteed bandwidth, and minimal latency on the public network (internet).
We implement the latest security policies to ensure your data and applications are available and secure.
Automated deployment, which is easy to use and even quicker — especially with our partners. You can improve the quality of your services by configuring your hybrid solution directly via the OVHcloud Control Panel.

Global coverage through points of presence from both OVHcloud and our partners
With our extended network, we are as close as possible to your datacentres. Connect your network to OVHcloud infrastructures via our global points of presence, or those offered by our partners.
Layer 2 or layer 3 connection
A layer 2 connection simplifies the way you connect your datacentre’s campus network to your OVHcloud vRack private network.
With a layer 3 connection, you can connect your company’s WAN network to your OVHcloud vRack private network, so that it is considered as a site within your company network. This option is only available for our Provider solution.
Geographical redundancy and SLA
Layer 3 networks require one or more private external BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) sessions to be established between your company and OVHcloud.
For critical environments, redundancy is strongly recommended with two OVHcloud Connect solutions distributed between two geographically distinct points of presence, using BGP redundancy mechanisms.
The advantage of BGP
Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) is an autonomous inter-system routing protocol that replaced the External Gateway Protocol (EGP) as a routing exchange protocol. It enables data to be transferred between autonomous systems used for OVHcloud Connect. Compared to internal routing protocols (e.g. RIP or IGRP), it does not take into account the distance between a router and a destination — instead, it takes a more precise set of parameters that can be defined. Its main advantage is its ability to handle a large number of routes that can be selected according to a specific policy. For example, you may choose to limit the number of connected autonomous systems, refuse transit, or prioritise some systems over others. This means it provides protection against loops for autonomous systems. To a lesser extent, it also enables you to manage the traffic load depending on the network announcement.
