OVHcloud Confirms its Shift to PaaS & Expands Its DBaaS Offering 

With six new DBaaS solutions available, OVHcloud now offers its customers one of the largest DBaaS portfolios on the market. This acceleration was made possible thanks to a partnership with Aiven, the European software company that combines the best of open-source technologies and cloud infrastructure.

With its six new Database-as-a-Service solutions (MySQL, PostgreSQL, Apache Kafka, Apache Kafka Mirror Maker, RedisTM and OpenSearch) along with 5 other solutions (Apache Cassandra, M3, M3 Aggregator, Grafana and Apache Kafka Connect) all available in spring 2022, OVHcloud is offering its customers the most comprehensive choice of managed databases.

Through its extensive Public Cloud Database portfolio, OVHcloud supports the adoption of a company’s Managed Platform-as-a-Service and facilitates the acceleration of their transformation as part of application modernisation, the implementation of a native cloud strategy, or the extrapolation of data through a complete data pipeline, based on artificial intelligence.

OVHcloud offers open-source databases, allowing its customers to benefit from the latest updates and innovation from user communities. These sustainable solutions, standards and supported by the open-source community guarantee portability and reversibility, to avoid any vendor lock-in.

DBaaS solutions benefit from the advantages fundamental to the OVHcloud range: an accessible solution, an unparalleled price/performance ratio, predictable pricing and data location choices so you are not subject to extraterritorial laws.

With a strong presence in Canada since 2011, OVHcloud is a global player and Europe’s leading cloud provider operating over 400,000 servers within 33 data centres across four continents. For 22 years, the Group has relied on an integrated model that provides complete control of its value chain: from the design of its servers to the construction and management of its data centres, including the orchestration of its fiber-optic network. This unique approach allows it to independently cover all the uses of its 1.6 million customers in more than 140 countries. OVHcloud now offers latest generation solutions combining performance, price predictability and total sovereignty over their data to support their growth in complete freedom.

Headquartered in Helsinki and with hubs in Berlin, Boston, Paris, Toronto, Sydney and Singapore, Aiven provides managed open source data technologies, like PostgreSQL, Kafka and OpenSearch, on all major clouds. Through Aiven, developers can do what they do best: create applications. Meanwhile, Aiven does what they do best: manage cloud data infrastructure.
