OVHcloud, a cloud service provider, is to partner with Peachtree Corners, one of the US’s first 5G smart cities powered by real-world connected infrastructure. Together, the partners hope to accelerate the pace of innovation across the city, including on Peachtree Corners’ autonomous vehicle test track and at its Curiosity Lab Innovation Center.
OVHcloud will deliver compute, storage and other cloud platform resources that will allow the city and select technology partners to manage, analyze, gain critical insights and make informed decisions from the massive amounts of data generated from the autonomous vehicles.
“We’ve watched with interest as Peachtree Corners has established its position as the leader for autonomous mobility and smart city technologies testing, and we are excited to serve as the exclusive cloud technology partner to startups and enterprises within their ecosystem,” said Jeffrey Gregor, general manager at OVHcloud US. “We’re eager to provide the cloud platform to support companies and agencies who are developing the next-generation smart city technology that will ultimately serve communities across the country and around the world.”
Peachtree Corners and Curiosity Lab Innovation Center members will look to leverage OVHcloud’s global cloud infrastructure, which consists of 400,000 servers within 33 data centers across four continents. “Our vision for Peachtree Corners as a living lab is tied closely to the partners who gather here to collaborate with other industry leaders and focus their research on immediate challenges and results,” added Brandon Branham, chief technology officer and assistant city manager of Peachtree Corners. “OVHcloud will be a major contributor to the ultimate realization of that vision, and we are excited to have them join as the exclusive cloud partner of the Curiosity Lab Innovation Center.”
