We are Outscale

Founded in 2010 and a strategic partner of Dassault Systèmes, Outscale is at the forefront of Cloud Computing infrastructure services (IaaS).

Outscale’s technology makes an automated and adaptable Cloud available to businesses, supporting them in the most complex IT projects while controlling their operational aspects. You boost your IT infrastructure’s reactivity, with request responses that only take a few seconds.

Our internally-developed TINA OS Cloud operating system manages and automates our Cloud resources: calculations, storage, and networking. With TINA OS, you benefit from an infrastructure that can be automated through APIs. Developed on Open Source elements, this software is compatible with the Amazon EC2 TM* service.

Outscale ensures data security and resources’ power and availability in the Cloud in real time. Deployed in the best datacentres in Europe, North America and Asia, the Outscale Cloud supplies computing resources to its demanding clients world-wide.

The Enterprise Class Outscale Cloud delivers the most complete calculating, storage and network infrastructure on the market with support from renowned partner technology from Cisco, NetApp, Intel, and Nvidia.
