Global hyper-scale cloud provider OVH has formed a partnership with Asia Pacific telecom operator MyRepublic to offer the telco’s gamer customers access to OVH’s dedicated servers at exclusive rates.

Under the deal, from today OVH says gamers can enjoy an improved gaming experience with ultra-low latency connections, the latest hardware and high-performance infrastructure.  

As part of its ongoing growth strategy, OVH says it continues to expand its range of solutions in Asia-Pacific by forging strategic partnerships with industry leading pure players.

Currently, OVH boasts what it says is “strong credentials in the gaming market, offering tailor-made servers including an in-house Anti-DDoS protection solution”.

“Collaborating with MyRepublic is a fantastic opportunity because we share similar values when it comes to innovation and disruptive offers. We are excited to bring this top of the range offering to the market for a better gaming experience!”

Focused on maximising the online experience, MyRepublic’s fibre broadband plans offer high-speed Internet connections for gamers.

“With over 80,000 customers in Australia alone, MyRepublic is the first purpose-built national broadband network Internet service provider in Asia-Pacific. Its network is optimised to deliver high performance to end users. Together, OVH and MyRepublic will offer gamers plans that are optimised for reduced latency, even during peak periods,” OVH said.

Evan Pope, group product manager – Gamer, said, “MyRepublic is always on the lookout for partnerships that help our subscribers realise the full potential of our super-fast, uncapped Internet service”.

“OVH's cloud-based server solutions are a perfect match to MyRepublic's Gamer network, and we are very excited to work with OVH to help improve connectivity for Australian gamers.”

OVH says that since establishing its operations in Asia-Pacific, it has been continuously investing in and developing its Asia-Pacific network, and recently carried out a series of technical upgrades so “users can enjoy reduced latency and better efficiency of online solutions to, or from, Australia and South-East Asia locations”.

Under the deal, MyRepublic (NBN Gamer plans) customers can benefit from an exclusive discount on their first order on the range of OVH Dedicated Servers designed for gaming powered by an Intel i7 processor, up to 64GB of RAM and ultra-fast NVMe disks.

OVH and MyRepublic say they have also optimised peering links and put in place direct interconnection of their networks via OVH APAC-based data centres (Sydney and Singapore).
