In a context of exponential growth in the volume of data year after year, cloud-native storage architectures are essentially based on unstructured data. To meet the demand, OVHcloud now offers a unique experience around different universes with the High-Performance Object Storage and Standard Object Storage ranges that join the novelties that it has been presenting.
In this sense, the solution OVHcloud High-Performance Object StorageAimed at the most demanding applications, it is based on the S3 API and combines reliability and performance. Launched in early 2022 as a highly scalable solution, High-Performance Object Storage continues to evolve and now supports encryption and Object Lock.
For its part, OVHcloud expands Standard Object Storage to meet data storage needs without specific performance limitations. Now accessible via the S3 API, Standard Object Storage is easy to deploy and integrates seamlessly into customer workflow, contributing to a fully reversible cloud.
Your journey to the cloud starts here
Standard Object Storage is the centerpiece of OVHcloud’s storage strategy and stands out for its price-performance ratio with a monthly fee of €7 per terabyte. In line with its commitment to offer predictable costs, the offer includes internal traffic to OVHcloud servers.
“Data is at the center of our digital world, whether it is for use in business applications, content on demand or AI. Our storage solutions support the data cycle and are designed to be robust, highly efficient and extremely competitive. In addition, they are universal, thanks to the use of market standards, thus allowing adaptation to different use cases and the development of native applications in the cloud”, declares John Gazal, VP Southern Europe at OVHcloud.
In the cloud storage area of redundant files, OVHcloud updates its NAS-HA service, especially valuable in virtualized environments or collaboration platforms. Perfectly integrated into the OVHcloud ecosystem, it is fully managed and based on OpenZFS technology with support for NFS and CFIS protocols.
With a completely revamped user interface, the NAS-HA service uses SSD drives. Storage levels range from 3 to 144 TB with a monthly fee starting at €159 for 3 terabytes, without any traffic limitation (incoming/outgoing). The offer is available in France (RBX and SBG) and in Canada (BHS).
At the end of this year, OVHcloud will launch its new cloud storage service, Cold Archive, a hyper-resistant solution. This service, which works with Standard Object Storage, will allow companies to store for long periods of time, with maximum security and reliability. The service is based on:
- 4 mini data centers spread throughout France with at least 200 km of distance between them. The interconnection of the sites makes it possible to guarantee a level of permanent backup, thanks to the redundancy mechanisms, to withstand any situation.
- A robust tape file storage solution, developed in collaboration with IBM and Atempo. This offering will provide customers with a very long-term, ultra-secure storage solution with a dual advantage: a high level of security and low power consumption when data is written to offline tapes.
Cloud storage: performance approach
Block data storage is particularly well suited to transactional processing as well as databases because it favors speed and accommodates the scaling process. One possible use case is the possibility for customers of OVHcloud’s Managed Kubernetes services to use the solution to store the data of these microservices.
block-storage will soon include a solution that supports NVMe Over Fabric, which uses NVMe SSDs and the NVMe protocol to deliver the best possible performance. Building on EXTEN developments, Block Storage Exten will benefit from throughputs in excess of 50K IOPS and will be able to saturate 100Gb/s network connections. The solution will be released in beta later this year.
