What tools integrate with OVH?
We use a mix of dedicated and cloud servers with SoftLayer and the service has been amazing. Great performance, great networking and for a really good price. The time of provisioning is sometimes longer than advertised, which can be a problem depending on your needs. Also while their API seems very powerful the documentation is not great.
We use OVH to host the majority of our servers spread across the globe. This allows us to have a single point of contact for our main hosting when issues arise as well as giving us the ability to quickly failover servers when needed. OVH also helps us by keeping the price we pay for servers down therefore keeping the fees on our products themselves down.
The majority of our dedicated servers are hosted with OVH, due to their competitive pricing, easy to use control panels and quick on-site support options.
