This Wednesday morning, a massive blackout affected OVH. It was impossible to connect to many websites. What provoke the legitimate anger of Internet users, who did not hesitate to let their dissatisfaction be known on Twitter. Some reactions are also very funny, enough to relativize in front of this umpteenth problem with the French host.
In the hosting market, OVH is certainly one of the heavyweights alongside AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure. With two million customers worldwide and more than 400,000 servers spread over 32 data centers, the French host is the most in continental Europe.
In fact, when a problem disrupts OVH’s activities, it does not go unnoticed, far from it. It must be said that the snowball effect applies particularly well to OVH. A fault with them, and it becomes impossible for millions of people to connect to dozens and dozens of websites.
And unfortunately for the host, OVH has often found itself in the spotlight for serious incidents, such as the fire that affected one of its largest data centers in Strasbourg in March 2021. In the background, OVH was the victim of a huge network failure. And on October 13, 2021, the host was hit again by a massive failure on its infrastructure. Occurring around 9 am, this failure due to human error made it impossible to access hundreds of sites.
