Business customers benefit from direct, private connectivity with Colt’s Dedicated Access to Europe’s leading cloud provider

London, UK 28th June 2024– Colt Technology Services (Colt), the digital infrastructure company, today announced a partnership with OVHcloud, a global cloud player and the European cloud leader, which brings extensive public and private cloud services to business customers in over 140 countries. The collaboration sees organisations benefit from the security and flexibility of Colt’s award-winning Dedicated Cloud Access connectivity, coupled with the robust data protection built into OVHcloud’s diverse set of public and private cloud services available through OVHcloud Connect.

OVHcloud operates over 450,000 servers within 43 data centres, serving 1.6 million customers on four continents. Spearheading a trusted cloud and pioneering a sustainable cloud with the best performance-price ratio, OVHcloud offers customers the latest-generation solutions combining performance, predictable pricing, and complete data sovereignty to support their unfettered growth.

Colt provides connectivity to OVHcloud via eight points of presence (PoPs) in Europe and one in Singapore. This connectivity gives businesses the opportunity to access OVHcloud from Colt’s extensive last-mile footprint of over 32,000 connected buildings and 1200 data centres globally, across a wide range of cloud connectivity options including SD WAN, Ethernet, Wave and IPVPN, and Colt’s first-to-market On Demand network-as-service (NaaS). Colt’s Dedicated Cloud Access provides secure connectivity that is dedicated to the customer and thus provides optimal latencies and full bandwidth guarantees.

The announcement comes as growth in the cloud market continues, with 94% of enterprises globally now using cloud services, according to one report1. Besides the ongoing Cloud trend, improving security is also a top priority for IT investment as identified in Colt’s latest IT Priorities research, cited by 40% of the 1,000+ respondents.

“We are delighted to work with Colt and offer OVHcloud services and solutions to even more customers throughout the world” said Yaniv Fdida, Chief Product and Technology Officer OVHcloud.

Peter Coppens, VP Infrastructure and Connectivity Solutions, said, “Data sovereignty and security are top of mind for IT leaders tasked with accelerating cloud migration. They need to know their data is watertight – not just within the cloud itself but also transitioning into and out of the cloud.  Our partnership with OVHcloud gives businesses the peace-of-mind that comes from working with two organisations which meet the most robust data protection standards and have a deep understanding of European and Global data sovereignty topics, backed up with global scale and a shared dedication to delivering the best customer experience”.
