PARIS (Reuters) – French group OVHcloud, specializing in cloud computing services, announced on Monday a strategic partnership with T-Systems, the IT subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, in the development of a public cloud offering for data sensitive companies.
“This offer will meet the specific needs of the public sector, operators of vital importance, as well as companies of all sizes working in strategic or sensitive sectors of public interest”, writes OVHcloud in a press release.
The new platform is part of the European Gaia-X project, which aims to offer an alternative to the cloud solutions offered by Google, Amazon and Microsoft.
The OVHcloud and T-Systems offer, based on OpenStack, will target European data sovereignty and compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), underlines OVHcloud.
“We are particularly proud to partner with T-Systems and become the first players in a truly sovereign public cloud service, in line with Gaia-X recommendations. It will provide the highest security standards to the most strategic enterprises. “, declared Michel Paulin, general manager of OVHcloud, quoted in the press release.
