Cloud provider doubles Australian server capacity

Cloud provider OVHcloud has doubled its data centre capacity in Australia through a new partership with NEXTDC.

The company says the demand for cloud technologies has been spurred on by the pandemic, contrary to expectations of a slow shift to digital solutions due to a shrinking economy. It says the rise in demand is linked to a need for rapid change in the way companies do business and adopt new technologies. OVHcloud further says public cloud expenditure is expected to reach $8.8 billion in 2021.

A second data centre in Australia is possible through a new partnership with leading data centre operator NEXTDC. Increasing its local infrastructure footprint, OVHcloud says it will continue to deliver low-latency access, enterprise-grade cloud services, world-class security and data protection in line with Australian privacy laws.

OVHcloud will also join NEXTDC’s partner program to further amplify its cloud offer reach to Australian businesses.

“We’re excited to launch this new partnership with NEXTDC, marking the next phase of OVHcloud’s strategic business expansion. The deal will see our capacity double in the market, and the NEXTDC data centre will provide another channel for our customers to capitalise on our multilocal approach. We have a strong focus on growth here in Australia and across the APAC region. We look forward to continuing to enhance our market offering through partnerships like this,” said Lionel Legros, OVHcloud General Manager APAC.
