Paris, France, January 26 2021
Atos and OVHcloud today announced that they have joined forces to bring trusted cloud transformation capabilities and services to enterprises and public organizations worldwide. Under this partnership, OVHcloud and Atos are creating a 100% European market-leading multi-cloud solution. This combination maximizes Atos’ powerful one-stop shop offering – Atos OneCloud – and OVHcloud’s innovative cloud solutions based on sovereign infrastructures. Going forward, international clients will benefit from the two companies’ global footprint with access to a joint unparalleled network of more than 130 datacenters to host dedicated, private environments.
This partnership confirms the shared ambitions of Atos and OVHcloud for data protection and privacy. The two groups build on their common commitment to create a unique, end-to-end, trusted and sovereign Cloud environment, from infrastructure to applications and industry data spaces, helping clients maintain full control of their data and applications, whether they are kept in public, private or hybrid clouds.
