Optimizing your Expenses

  • Economies of scale that benefit the customers:
    • Datacentre construction and maintenance
    • Server design and manufacturing
    • Our own global network
  • Competitive and clear pricing:
    • Prices stately explicitly on our website
    • No hidden costs or false promises

Most of our competitors only manage the hosting service itself. The manufacturing of their servers is therefore outsourced; the datacenters are rented to third parties, as is the network, provided turnkey by subcontractors. The rates of your services are consequently hard to guarantee and maintain to a competitive level. At OVH.com, the cost structure is rationalized to its maximum.

High Volume Server Production

  • Secure and high availability hosting on an industrial level
  • Scalability for your server farm guaranteed in just a few clicks
  • Redundancy ensured for every server, storage space and network path
  • Location and traceability of your data guaranteed
  • Compliance with the laws of the country your servers are hosted in

We are in charge of the whole process of Internet hosting, from the assembly of our own servers, to the production and the maintenance of our data centers. We can therefore guarantee high quality services and hosting solutions that are both flexible and reliable, at competitive prices.

A Permanent Challenge

  • Design and development of exclusive cooling systems:
    • 70% of heat emitted by the processors dispersed
  • Total elimination of air conditioning
    • The remaining 30% evacuated by a ventilation system
  • Energy costs halved
  • Constant reduction of datacentre energy consumption:
    • PUE of between 1 and 1.2*
    • Energy consumption two times lower than the industry average
*meaning that 100 to 120 watts are needed to run a server that consumes 100 watts.

Strict measures lead us to lower our environmental impact. Back in 2003, we created an exclusive cooling system for our servers. Over time, we kept improving the cooling and ventilation techniques to be able to completely eradicate air conditioning. Since 2011, in Europe and North America, 98% of our hosting chambers do not have air conditioning systems.

A Claimed Independence

  • Autonomous development:
    • A family business
    • Financially independent
    • Self-investment
  • Continuous innovation:
    • Permenant R&D
    • Constant performance optimisation
