About VEXXHOST and Our History
Established in 2006, VEXXHOST was initially a web hosting provider offering services from shared hosting to VPS. However, with the advancement of cloud technologies, VEXXHOST made the decision to move to more innovative options such as cloud hosting. This leap to cloud-based hosting garnered a positive response, encouraging VEXXHOST to invest further in cloud-based solutions. In 2011, VEXXHOST adopted OpenStack software for its infrastructure. Since then, VEXXHOST has been an active contributor and an avid user of OpenStack. Currently, VEXXHOST provides infrastructure-as-a-service OpenStack Public Cloud, Private Cloud, and Hybrid Cloud solutions to customers, from small businesses to enterprises across the world.
VEXXHOST is committed to working with its users to help architect, configure and optimize their cloud infrastructure in order to reduce expenses and increase productivity. VEXXHOST also delivers a high level of expertise to clients, enabling them to focus on their core competencies.

Our Data Centers.
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
VEXXHOST has two data centre regions within Quebec, Canada. One located in Montreal and the other located off-island so as to ensure accessibility and redundancy in case of disaster situations.
Both of our data centres undergo yearly SOC Type 2 audits and have security staff on site 24/7/365. They also feature dual-factor authentication through either biometric or physical access controls, as well as continuous monitoring via HD security cameras.
Additionally, our data center infrastructures are incredibly power efficient, making them some of the greenest data centers in the world. Our entire power supply is provided by hydroelectricity power which means that our servers are powered 100% by green energy.
Given that our data centers are located in Canada, all of your data is protected by Canadian privacy laws which are among some of the highest in standard worldwide, enabling Canada to be one of the few countries able to work with the European Union.
