OVHcloud and Bechtle form pan-European partnership

OVHcloud, the European leader in cloud computing, and IT service provider Bechtle are entering into a strategic, Europe-wide partnership. Through this long-term collaboration, both companies aim to support each other in expanding their businesses in their core markets across the whole of Europe and offering their B2B and public sector customers extended access to the latest cloud solutions with full data sovereignty.

With Bechtle's extensive experience as an IT partner for future-proof IT architectures, and OVHcloud as a leading European cloud provider, the collaboration offers a host of synergies. European customers benefit both from Bechtle's cloud expertise and from state-of-the-art cloud solutions, courtesy of OVHcloud.
