OVH do not ignoes DMCA, if they receive too much abuse requests, they will suspend your service.

OVH is not a US-based host, why should they comply with the DMCA?

You would think this would be the case, that they could ignore a DMCA but it's not really true.

I'll share a bit of advice I was given a while back. Regardless of how you are informed about copyright & trademark abuse, be it DMCA, letter from a lawyer, form that's filled out on the website etc.. it doesn't matter. You have now been notified of infringement occurring on your network. They now can use that as evidence to show that you had been notified and were aware infringement has been occurring and could then use that to bolster their case for monetary damages. It's not wise to ignore any type of copyright or trademark complaint and address it appropriately per the laws in your country, regardless of how it is formatted and sent to you. The end of the day you (the provider) have been notified that infringement is occurring.

Each hosting provider, that has a vision on the future of himself, will not completely ignore the copyright complains. A provider who would ignore all complains and allow copyrighted content from their customers can not break DMCA directly (if not located in US), but most of countries today has their own laws. So ask yourself a question - if company are willing to break the copyright law and allow such content on their servers, what stops them from breaking another one and stopping your services without explanation or running away with your money and no services at all?

Not sure why anyone would want a host that ignores DMCA, those guys who ignore it are likely heavily targetted and wiretapped further upstream anyways due to the mass ignoring of DMCA. So your privacy is probably greatly limited in comparison to hosts who regularly comply with DMCA. Just speculation on my end, tin foil hat logic for sure. I just know I would want those violating DMCA off the network in which I would want to reside.
