A unique partnership with NetApp®

NetApp is a global cloud-led, data-centric software company that empowers organizations to lead with data in the age of accelerated digital transformation. The company provides systems, software and cloud services that enable them to run their applications optimally from data center to cloud, whether they are developing in the cloud, moving to the cloud, or creating their own cloudlike experiences on premises. With solutions that perform across diverse environments, NetApp helps organizations build their own data fabric and securely deliver the right data, services and applications to the right people—anytime, anywhere.


A highly available service

Enterprise File Storage is composed of two nodes configured as a HA Pair. This guarantees service redundancy, and prevents operations from being interrupted. In the event of a node failure or during a maintenance operation, the second node can take over and continue to provide the data.

All data is duplicated and stored in clusters on two separate nodes. OVHcloud also performs daily backups of these services on a remote server.

Bare-metal servers for high performance workloads

How much performance is offered with Enterprise File Storage?

Enterprise File Storage guarantees 4,000 IOPS per TB, and 64MB/s bandwidth per TB, since it is powered by NVMe SSD technologies. We guarantee this performance when you increase your file system volumes — so the more data you store, the higher the performance. For example, 20TB of data provides you with 80,000 IOPS and 1,280MB/s bandwidth.

As a result, this service is adapted to suit all types of enterprise workloads: CRM, ERP, databases and any virtualised infrastructures with potentially critical data.


What is Enterprise File Storage?

Enterprise File Storage is a highly available storage volume where you can store your files. This product is based on NetApp® Cloud Volumes technology, with ONTAP® Select virtual appliances.

What can I do with my Enterprise File Storage?

You can interconnect multiple OVHcloud services to your NetApp® Cloud Volume to access all your critical data. You can also store your virtual machines' data from your hypervisor hosted on top of your OVHcloud dedicated server(s).

What is the backup policy for Enterprise File Storage?

Customers are responsible for managing their own backup solution and policy. However, for resiliency and security, OVHcloud performs a daily backup of your service to a remote server. In case of failure or attack, OVHcloud can restore data from the previous day. If necessary, you can request a restoration as a paid service option.
