How it works

Step 1 OVHcloud

Extend your network to OVHcloud datacentres

Connectivity is the first step, as you need to link your infrastructure to OVHcloud datacentres. A dedicated link to OVHcloud's fibre-optic network between datacentres provides high availability across all regions, for all your solutions. Your workloads and your data are completely isolated from public internet access, and you can easily connect your security gateways. Take advantage of OVHcloud's powerful private network bandwidth, with unmetered ingress/egress traffic – free of charge.

Step 2 OVHcloud

Decide exactly what you keep on-premises

You retain full control of where your data is hosted, with the freedom to scale your infrastructure across your on-premises solutions and isolated spaces in OVHcloud datacentres. With our private network, you can define all the security rules for the data you host at OVHcloud, and you don't need public internet access for running your applications. Security is maximised across your whole multi-cloud, and your most critical data can stay on-site.

Step 3 OVHcloud

Scale your infrastructure for hybrid cloud

As you can interconnect your current cloud providers, on-premises workloads and OVHcloud services, you can effortlessly scale and achieve high availability for all your cloud solutions. From Hosted Private Cloud (powered by VMware), to Public Cloud (powered by OpenStack) and bare-metal servers, you are free to design and manage your own hybrid cloud. And because OVHcloud commits to full reversibility for your data, you can host even the most business-critical workloads in OVHcloud datacentres, with no charges for network traffic.

What is hybrid cloud?

A hybrid cloud architecture is any infrastructure that incorporates multiple cloud and bare-metal solutions, hosted both on-premises and in external datacentres. This can involve a tremendous range of bespoke combinations, designed to suit organisation’s specific requirements in terms of security, scalability and flexibility, as well as any applicable laws and regulations regarding data sovereignty and reversibility.

A good hybrid cloud example would be utilising on-premises bare-metal servers to store sensitive customer data and fulfil any specific compliance requirements, while linking these servers to OVHcloud Public Cloud instances that power the related application or solution via a secure, private connection to the appropriate OVHcloud datacentre.

As with many hybrid cloud or multi-cloud solutions, this combines the best of both worlds: the control and security of on-premises bare metal, with the flexibility and scalability of the Public Cloud. Customer data is kept fully isolated, with the customer retaining complete control over where it is located, while the Public Cloud allows new instances to be deployed, re-deployed or deleted, on an as-needed basis, with a single click. This allows the customer to effortlessly manage traffic peaks and expand into new geographical areas, while maintaining their established approach to data security.

This is just one possible example of an effective hybrid cloud architecture. Any sort of multi-cloud strategy will be designed with an organisation’s short- and long-term goals and requirements, as well as its budget and level of existing technical expertise in mind. The possibilities are virtually endless.

Why does hybrid cloud matter to your organisation?

As more and more organisations contemplate moving their infrastructures to the cloud, the question of how to scale in effective, affordable and secure way has become increasingly important. The security, sovereignty and reversibility of data has become a pressing concern, particularly organisations that handle sensitive customer data on a regular basis. That’s where the hybrid cloud approach shows its true value…

A hybrid cloud or multi-cloud solution is the logical answer to these questions. It offers the ideal path for any organisation looking to move into the cloud, while retaining full control over how and where their data is hosted, transferred and managed, regardless of their industry, budget and long-term goals for their infrastructure. Regardless of an organisation’s industry, budget and current level of internal expertise, the full range of potential hybrid cloud benefits is within easy reach.

OVHcloud’s cloud and bare-metal solutions have all been designed with this in mind, so our customers and their end users enjoy maximum performance and consistency as their infrastructures evolve. With OVHcloud, you are free to mix solutions and even hybrid cloud providers in whatever way best suits your long-term multi-cloud strategy. And you will always enjoy complete reversibility of your data, regardless of which of our global network of datacentres it is hosted in.
