Why choose an OVHcloud Windows dedicated server?

Windows environment

One of the main advantages of a Windows dedicated server is that it delivers a familiar environment for users. It is intuitive to use, and saves time in comparison to other operating systems, like Linux distributions. Windows Server is adapted to suit the needs of companies seeking to focus on their core business.


Server scalability and your company’s overall infrastructure are crucial factors in choosing your products. Windows Server natively offers a number of solutions to help you scale up. You can use the Hyper-V hypervisor to manage workloads seamlessly. It optimises the usage of disk space, RAM, CPU and bandwidth for your servers.


The Windows Server operating system is designed for business usage, and is equipped with an elaborate security system. This means you can limit any intrusions and damage caused to your infrastructure. Applications are isolated to protect your critical databases and the controlled network, for maximum security. It is perfect for hosting business web applications, and you also get backup systems.

Windows Server Standard edition

The Standard edition licence is aimed at small enterprises who do not have intensive requirements in terms of virtualisation. You get a maximum of two virtual machines, with one Hyper-V host per licence. This edition enables users to create an unlimited number of Windows containers.

Windows Server Datacenter edition

The Datacenter edition licence offers a wider range of features than the Standard edition, which suits companies with higher virtualisation requirements. It authorises an unlimited number of virtual machines, with one Hyper-V host per licence. This edition has Hyper-V Host Guardian support, which enables you to use shielded VMs for more security. All types of containers can be used, without any number limits.

Windows licences and pricing

When you place an order, you can choose between two types of Windows Server licences: Standard edition and Datacenter edition. You can also order a licence directly via the OVHcloud Control Panel. The price of a Windows dedicated server depends on the server, as well as the type of licence you select.
