OVHcloud selects Console Connect as global cloud connect partner

16th October 2023October 17th, 2023

OVHcloud, the European cloud leader, has selected Console Connect, a leading Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) platform, as a new global OVHcloud Connect partner, extending private network reach to OVHcloud from hundreds of locations worldwide.

The collaboration will help accelerate hybrid and multi-cloud adoption by providing businesses with more flexible and secure connectivity solutions for accessing OVHcloud.

Using Console Connect, businesses can self-provision and pay for private connections to and between OVHcloud data centre locations worldwide through an easy-to-use management portal or via API. Unlike other NaaS platforms, Console Connect delivers Layer 2 and Layer 3 connectivity to OVHcloud using a private, high-performance network, which features a redundant and resilient subsea cable network.

The platform is accessible directly at office locations across 10 countries or in over 900 data centres across 60 countries. Using Console Connect’s new Edge SIM, businesses can also securely route traffic between IoT devices and OVHcloud without using the public internet.

The extensive network reach of the Console Connect platform will support OVHcloud’s global rollout, with the cloud provider set to open 15 new data centre locations by 2024. Following the opening of a new data centre in Mumbai, India earlier this year, OVHcloud will strengthen its presence in Asia Pacific with new data centres in Singapore and Sydney by next year, giving it a total of six sites across the region.

“This is a really exciting time for OVHcloud to join the Console Connect ecosystem, opening up new opportunities for businesses to seamlessly connect to OVHcloud and other cloud providers. With an unmatched automated network fabric across Asia Pacific, Europe and North America, the Console Connect platform will help meet the rising demand for OVHcloud services worldwide,” said Michael Glynn, SVP of Digital Automated Innovation at Console Connect.

“We are delighted to add Console Connect as our newest OVHcloud Connect Partner, giving businesses much greater choice, flexibility and reach with their cloud connectivity. The combination of Console Connect and OVHcloud helps us further deliver on our promise to build an open, reliable and trusted cloud for organisations globally,” said Sylvain Rouri, Chief Sales Officer at OVHcloud.

With the public internet becoming increasingly unsuitable for mission-critical applications and workloads, a private dedicated network connection between an enterprise network and cloud provider network improves both security and performance for enterprises.

The combination of Console Connect and OVHcloud Connect simplifies network management and configuration for enterprises, reducing provisioning time to minutes and allowing them to dynamically adjust bandwidth to meet the changing needs of their business.

The underlying Console Connect network also offers stringent SLAs, and can help enterprises introduce greater network resiliency and redundancy to their network architecture.

Using Console Connect’s multi-cloud connectivity solution CloudRouter®, businesses can also seamlessly connect from OVHcloud to other major cloud partners, including AWS, Google Cloud, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Oracle Cloud, Stackpath, Vultr and more, or connect between multiple OVHcloud regions.

The Console platform is fully integrated with OVHcloud and today offers interconnections to OVHcloud’s data centre in France. In the coming weeks more OVHcloud data centres will be added to the platform, including locations in Germany, Spain, UK, Canada, the US and Singapore.
