Cloud computing and web hosting giant OVHcloud, drops a new web hosting solution, Web PaaS, powered by Platform.sh. This innovative platform will allow developers and their teams to design, deploy and run web applications.
The companies fully integrated the Web PaaS into OVHcloud's portfolio of solutions. In turn, they brought enhanced flexibility and agility to developer teams.
OVHcloud infrastructure combined with Platform.sh expertise allows users to develop applications using runtime or web service from a wide selection and use pre-set templates to get started quickly. Also, by using the OVHcloud infrastructures, developer teams can focus on their projects and coding.
The Platform.sh technology works with all popular web platforms, including Drupal, Magento, WordPress, and Symfony. In addition, customers can use it to deploy components written in PHP, Node.js, Python, Go, Rust, .Net, or Java.
Michel Paulin, who serves the role as CEO of OVHcloud, had this to say:
Data control continues to be a concern for users, and we would like to support the changing needs in PaaS with trusted solutions, without compromising on performance. We are now taking an important step by jointly deploying a solution that is revolutionizing the development of web projects - using a public cloud platform that can guarantee that its users have full reversibility of their data. By integrating Platform.sh technology, we are confirming our move towards PaaS and are offering our European customers a solution that combines data sovereignty, simplicity, and agility.
OVHcloud stated that the Web PaaS would facilitate the production and increase the security for sites and apps in an open and reversible cloud on the web.

The two companies spotted the need to build a European cloud alternative. Thus, the Web PaaS will be 100% hosted in Europe, meeting all the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Frédéric Plais, who serves the role as CEO at Platform.sh, had this to say:
"The PaaS web hosting plan will enable European startups to expand quickly, allowing them to focus on their core products rather than infrastructure management. And finally, because we share our convictions on the importance of offering Europeans a product made in Europe by European companies, providing all the necessary guarantees on compliance with European data and laws."
In his statement, Plais also explained that the two companies took a year to design and integrate the new Web PaaS solution.
