OVH has completed its acquisition of vCloud Air from VMware, a deal first announced in early April. OVH said it will continue operations of the acquired service as “vCloud Air Powered by OVH.”
With the acquisition OVH has gained the data center and customer operations, customers and support team of vCloud Air. The completion of the European component of the transaction is expected to close before July 2017.
The company plans to continue to partner with VMware on go-to-market and customer support around vCloud Air use cases, including data center extension, data center consolidation, and data center recovery. OVH has repeatedly been recognized as VMware’s service provider of the year and has more than 200,000 VMs already running VMware vSphere Private Cloud.
"vCloud Air customers can expect a seamless transition to OVH with high-touch customer support and increased access to OVH's global network and modern, highly-automated green data centers," Russell P. Reeder, President and CEO of OVH US said in a statement. "OVH is proud to welcome the sales, support, account management, and infrastructure operations teams from vCloud Air to the OVH family. We're inspired by the ongoing conversations we've had with vCloud Air customers across the globe and look forward to delivering valuable innovation to solve their rapidly evolving business needs."
OVH said that vCloud Air customers will have a better section of products through its private cloud product suite and lineup of public cloud services and dedicated servers.
