A unique partnership with NetApp®

NetApp is a global cloud-led, data-centric software company that empowers organizations to lead with data in the age of accelerated digital transformation. The company provides systems, software and cloud services that enable them to run their applications optimally from data center to cloud, whether they are developing in the cloud, moving to the cloud, or creating their own cloudlike experiences on premises. With solutions that perform across diverse environments, NetApp helps organizations build their own data fabric and securely deliver the right data, services and applications to the right people—anytime, anywhere.


How Enterprise File Storage is secured

Enterprise File Storage is composed of 2 nodes that are configured in high-availability (HA) pairs. This assures fault tolerance and non-disruptive operations.

If a node fails or requires routine maintenance, its partner can take over its storage tasks and continue to serve data.

All data is duplicated and stored in clusters on two separate nodes. OVHcloud performs daily backups of services on a remote server.

Enterprise File Storage is a highly available storage volume where you can store your files. This product is based on NetApp® Cloud Volumes technology, with ONTAP® Select virtual appliances.

What can I do with my Enterprise File Storage?

You can interconnect multiple OVHcloud services to your NetApp® Cloud Volume to access all your critical data. You can also store your virtual machines' data from your hypervisor hosted on top of your OVHcloud dedicated server(s).

What is the backup policy for Enterprise File Storage?

Customers are responsible for managing their own backup solution and policy. However, for resiliency and security, OVHcloud performs a daily backup of your service to a remote server.
