Record ecological achievements


-98% of OVH hosting rooms are free from air conditioning

-The water-cooling enables 70% of heat emitted by the processors to be dispersed

-Air-cooling evacuates the remaining 30%

-Energy costs halved

-PUE below 1.2: constantly reducing our datacentre energy consumption



Continuous research, development and innovation


-OVH has been designing and building its own datacentres since 2003

-Continuous R&D to simplify server installation and maintenance, and enable rapid interventions - no dropped ceilings, tailor-made racks, and much more

-Continuous innovation especially to improve cooling and ventilation techniques: design and deployment of in-house water-cooling and air-cooling systems

-High-end equipment upgraded and replaced reguarly



Carefully selected locations


-OVH has datacentres offering similar services with a minimum geographical distance of 200km between them, to ensure redundancy and continuous service

-Ideal for BCP/DRP

-OVH datacentres are located outside of regions subject to the Patriot Act
