Apr 10, 2024 | Posted by Abdul-Rahman Oladimeji

Cloud hosting firm Vultr has launched a new sovereign and private cloud offering as a response to the increased importance of digital sovereignty, and the need to reduce reliance on hyperscalers. This new offering which was made available from April 10 shortly follows the release of Vultr Cloud Inference, which enables customers to deploy AI models and inference capabilities via Vultr's infrastructure, which spans 32 data center locations across six continents.

Customers have technological independence via a dedicated control plane that is completely untethered from the central control plane that handles resources across Vultr's data center portfolio. Vultr Sovereign Cloud and Private Cloud are also managed exclusively by nationals of the host country, resulting in an audit trail that complies with the highest standards of national security and operational integrity.

“To address the growing need for countries to control their own data, and to reduce their reliance on a small number of large global tech companies, Vultr will now deploy sovereign clouds on demand for national governments around the world,” said J.J. Kardwell, CEO of Vultr’s parent company, Constant. “We are actively working with government bodies, local telecommunications companies, and other in-country partners to provide Vultr Sovereign Cloud and Private Cloud solutions globally, paving the way for customers to deliver fully compliant AI innovation at scale.”
