European cloud provider OVHcloud announced the opening of its first Public Cloud Local Zone in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The company noted that the zone was “in full compliance” with European digital sovereignty and security regulations, and fits stringent security policies of organizations such as finance, banking, and government sectors.

“Driven by innovative technology from gridscale, OVHcloud's latest acquisition, the group can now deploy cloud capacity within weeks to serve new international locations,” the company said. “Adding to Local Zones previously opened in Brussels, Madrid, and Milan, the new Local Zone in Amsterdam brings new options for Dutch customers to access the group's public cloud services, with reduced latency and local data residency.”

"Today's availability of the Amsterdam Local Zone, marks a milestone date in OVHcloud's relationship with the Netherlands, and demonstrates once again the centrality of the country in the group's strategy,” said Caroline Comet-Fraigneau, VP for France, Benelux, Africa, and Middle-East at OVHcloud. "From now on Dutch customers will take advantage of the Local Zone to rely on even more secure, fast, and efficient services to support business locally and digital transformation in the Amsterdam tech ecosystem."
