Considering Liquid Web vs OVH For Your Next Cloud Deployment?
Complex hosting solutions and cloud deployments are not for the faint of heart. Whether you need geo-redundancy or massive amounts of processing power (or both) it makes sense to endeavor forward only with a trusted hosting partner by your side. French hosting company OVH offers 30 data centers and 34 points of presence (POPs) to serve mid-market and large customers all around the world. These environments are meant to support the most discerning and complicated applications and websites. When it comes to combining cloud instances with traditional infrastructure, OVH is certainly one of the world’s most prominent providers.
But bigger isn’t always better, and worldwide isn’t always a good thing. With OVH, you’ll have access to global infrastructure, but miss out on some other valuable and essential features in today’s business climate.
Liquid Web provides traditional infrastructure and cloud deployments in multiple datacenters around the world just like OVH does. The primary difference between Liquid Web vs OVH is that we provide full infrastructure management as well, never leaving customers on their own to solve infrastructure problems. Furthermore, whereas we are proud to answer all phone and chat inquiries in under a minute, OVH only offers phone and email support, not giving customers the chance to receive help via onsite chat.
When considering what global infrastructure provider is right for you, it is crucial that your decision be based on more than just hardware and global footprint. It is essential that service, support, and experience factor into your decision as well.
