OVH Payment Infrastructure

Using the power of SDDC to support secure payment systems.

OVH Payment Infrastructure

Fraud involving payment card data is highly common. Those handling IT payment systems therefore have very strong security requirements. In response to this, OVH has set up the most advanced security measures in the field, ensuring the highest level of security for your payment infrastructures.
Currently, only our datacentres in France and Canada are PCI DSS certified, but we will soon be receiving the same certification in our UK, Germany and Poland datacentres.
