OVH, a French hosting and cloud provider, recently announced they are stepping into the U.K. market with three data centers. They launched the first of three data centers in the suburbs of London.
The company is most-known for the headlines they made back in 2010. They are a Roubaix-based company and in 2010, OVH agreed to host WikiLeaks after Amazon chickened out due to U.S. government pressure.
Currently, OVH is in the middle of expanding across the globe after receiving a large funding round, which closed in 2016. Along with the U.K. market, the company has launched data centers in Poland, Singapore and Australia, recently. They also have plans to step into the U.S. market with a data center in Virginia, along with the German market with one in Frankfurt.
