    Wow OVH will be growing even more with 400 million Euro funding OVH Gets €400M in Financing to Support Global Expansion. That brings OVH's total funding to ~US$733 million according to https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/ovh-com :eek:

    Seriously very hard for any web host in the world to compete with that piggy bank that OVH has !

    FYI, OVH was started in 1999 with just $4000 dollars European tech unicorn OVH opens APAC HQ in Melbourne

    Not sure I would agree with that considering some of the other competitors in the space... Amazon, Microsoft, etc. all offering cloud offerings and make OVH look like a penny candy store.

    As an OVH fan, I'm glad to see expansion. More datacenters around the globe means faster communications within the OVH network. They should get into the CDN game and launch a competitor to Cloudflare.

    ah I was referring the normal web hosts that aren't Amazon, Microsoft, Aliyun etc. But yes looking forward to OVH US West Coast data center - I'm moving in ASAP :D

    Imagine an OVH + Cloudflare partnership :eek:

    Should be interesting to see what direction OVH takes with this new infusion of money. Cheaper prices / more services... I don't think prices can get any cheaper.
