OVHcloud positioned in the “Major Players” Category in IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Public Cloud Infrastructure as a Service 2022 Vendor Assessment

 OVHcloud, the European cloud leader, is named as a “Major Player” in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Public Cloud Infrastructure as a Service 2022 Vendor Assessment (doc #US48861822, November 2022). The IDC MarketScape evaluated 13 companies to assess strategies and capabilities.

IDC MarketScape vendor analysis model is designed to provide an overview of the competitive fitness of ICT suppliers in a given market. The research methodology utilizes a rigorous scoring methodology based on both qualitative and quantitative criteria that results in a single graphical illustration of each vendor’s position within a given market. The Capabilities score measures vendor product, go-to-market and business execution in the short-term. The Strategy score measures alignment of vendor strategies with customer requirements in a 3-5-year timeframe. Vendor market share is represented by the size of the icons.

According to the IDC MarketScape report, “OVHcloud has attractive and transparent pricing (e.g., it does not bill for API calls). It also has valuable service adjacency given it also offers dedicated private servers, web hosting, and hosted private clouds. This helps make it a one-stop shop for companies still early in their journey to the public cloud, as they can start the transition with OVHcloud using older deployment models and then maintain the same commercial relationship if and when they decide to move those workloads.”

The report also noted, “OVHcloud's roots as a European service provider also puts the company in the catbird seat for conversations about sovereign cloud and data residency, and indeed, it has baked these factors into its development approach for years. It has also made sustainability a strong focus for many years.

From a portfolio standpoint, the IDC MarketScape notes the recent investments made in building out software services higher up the stack in areas such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, databases, and container orchestrations, while continuing to court partners focused on commercial and open-source software to build its ecosystem.

“As the only European-based cloud provider represented in the Worldwide Public Cloud IaaS MarketScape, OVHcloud is uniquely positioned to address the needs of customers in that region and beyond” said Dave McCarthy, Research Vice President, cloud and edge infrastructure services at IDC. “The company’s investments in the areas of digital sovereignty and sustainability are well aligned to the requirements of global organizations.”

“We are pleased to be named as a Major Player by the IDC MarketScape for Worldwide Public Cloud IaaS.” said Michel Paulin, CEO of OVHcloud.  “This assessment encourages us to further expand and accelerate our efforts in the field of PaaS to better meet our customers expectations all the while maintaining our positioning at the forefront of a trusted cloud, but also as pioneer for sustainable infrastructure.”
