OVHcloud drops new PaaS web hosting plan

Cloud computing and web hosting giant OVHcloud has launched its PaaS web solution with the help of Platform.sh, as it seeks to facilitate the development of applications and sites on the web.

Web PaaS, powered by Platform.sh, will be fully integrated into the OVHcloud solutions portfolio.

The Web PaaS solution has been integrated into the OVHcloud Control Panel, allowing teams of developers to focus on their projects and their coding, using an infrastructure managed by OVHcloud.

PaaS Web Solution

The launch of the web-based PaaS solution comes as the two companies decided there was a need to create a European alternative to the cloud. The solution will be 100% hosted in Europe and will meet all the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

In a written statement, OVHcloud pointed out that the PaaS web solution will allow easier production and increased security of websites and web applications in an open and reversible cloud.

Platform.sh technology is compatible with all popular web platforms, such as Drupal, Magento, WordPress, Symfony, and can be used to deploy components written in PHP, Node.js, Python, Go, Rust, .Net or Java .

Speaking on the Web PaaS solution powered by Platform.sh, by Michel Paulin, CEO of OVHcloud, said that the collaboration between the two companies demonstrates the strength and importance of the ecosystem.

“Data control continues to be a concern for users, and we would like to support the changing needs of PaaS with reliable solutions, without compromising performance,” he added.

“We are now taking an important step by jointly deploying a solution that revolutionizes the development of web projects – using a public cloud platform that can guarantee its users full reversibility of their data. By integrating Platform.sh technology, we are confirming our evolution towards PaaS and offering our European customers a solution combining data sovereignty, simplicity and agility. “

With the solution, users will have the ability to develop applications based on their choice of runtime environment or web service, using predefined templates to launch their projects.

Frédéric Plais, CEO of Platform.sh mentioned that the Web PaaS comes after a year of collaboration between the teams of the two companies to design and integrate the solution.

“The PaaS web hosting plan will allow European startups to grow quickly, allowing them to focus on their core products rather than infrastructure management,” Plais commented.

“And finally, because we share our convictions on the importance of offering Europeans a product manufactured in Europe by European companies, providing all the necessary guarantees on respect for data and European laws.”
