Bandwidth and unlimited traffic

Each dedicated server hosted in Sydney datacentre has a minimum public bandwidth of 500 Mbit/s, as well as a burst to absorb occasional traffic spikes. Both ingress and egress traffic are unlimited and free (with the exception of our datacentres located in the Asia-Pacific region). Optionally, you can increase your bandwidth capacity for added comfort.

Distributions

To make getting started with your dedicated server easier, we offer a number of distributions that can be installed almost automatically with just one click, via the OVHcloud Control Panel. You will find the most popular operating systems, such as Windows Server, Debian, Ubuntu and CentOS. You also have access to Plesk and cPanel web management interfaces, and Microsoft SQL Server for managing databases. If you want to take advantage of virtualisation, VMware, CoreOS and Windows Hyper-V solutions will meet your needs.

500 GB of backup space

Our Australian dedicated servers have a free 500 GB storage space, designed for your backups. This environment is completely independent from the server, ensuring the integrity of your data, critical information and configuration files. The storage capacity of this space can be increased, if necessary.

Why consider a Dedicated Server in Australia?

A dedicated server, or computing server, is a server where all the physical resources of the machines are available. With our server management offering - including around-the-clock monitoring and maintenance - you can forget server administration and focus on your core tasks and responsibilities. Enjoy a proactive online presence with guarantees on service-level-agreements and quality server hardware that is compliant with your most demanding data requirements.

For businesses in Australia, dedicated server hosting options are a reliable & powerful option offering minimal downtime. Unlike a virtual server, which uses a portion of the resources to run its virtualisation technology, a dedicated server allows you to benefit from all of the machine’s available RAM, storage, and computing power. With cloud computing, we can also define this type of solution as "bare metal", highlighting the physical availability of the machine’s resources, in contrast to standard solutions based on virtual instances.

A dedicated server also gives the user added flexibility to configure the system to specific requirements and manage the data hosted on it. This leaves the option of a more advanced installation, essential for some business applications to reach your customers in Australia.

With OVHcloud, dedicated server rental for Australia-based business is a great way to take advantage of numerous features. Each server comes with a minimum public bandwidth of 500 Mbit/s, with a burst available to absorb occasional peak traffic. Incoming and outgoing traffic is unlimited and free (with the exception of Asia Pacific) and a bandwidth capacity that can be increased. We also offer a range of free operating systems to install automatically via the OVHcloud control panel, free and expandable 500GB of backup storage space independent from the server, anti-DDoS protection, as well as assistance and support from our specialist IT teams.

How do I choose my datacenter?

We recommend choosing a datacentre that is as close as possible geographically to your main customers and user base.

OVHcloud Australia servers are located in Sydney, Australia datacenter which ensure minimal latency, with optimal performance and reach. All our datacentres are fitted with maximum security systems to keep your data secure at all costs.

Which dedicated server should you choose?

There are many uses for a dedicated server: big data, machine learning, website and application hosting, backups and storage, infrastructure virtualisation, server clusters, business applications (CRM, ERP), and even online game hosting.

The configurations used for our dedicated hosting solution are designed to suit professional needs. Depending on your usage, you might need a configuration with more RAM, bigger storage space, or a higher processing capacity. Furthermore, the different OVHcloud dedicated server ranges are distinguished by their bandwidth capacity and range of associated services. You can also get anti-DDoS protection adapted for online gaming, a private network (vRack) with up to 10 Gb/s to allow you to connect your dedicated server to your infrastructure, or even hardware RAID. Choose the dedicated server that fits your needs.

Why is the anti-DDoS protection included as standard?

At OVHcloud, anti-DDoS protection is a mandatory feature with all our solutions. It guarantees optimal security for your servers and infrastructures. It is vital, because:

  • an attack on your server will affect your business, which can result in reduced earnings, or an interruption in income
  • if access to your website is saturated, it could flood the common networks and affect other customers

What is the lifetime guarantee for components?

We don’t compromise on quality, so all of our server hardware is maintained 24/7. Our servers also hold a lifetime guarantee for components.

In the event of a server component failing, OVHcloud will replace it automatically for the entire duration of your contract. You will not be charged for these replacement operations.

What are the advantages of using a dedicated server, compared to a VPS?

We recommend using a dedicated server if you want to manage the hardware aspects yourself, build more elaborate architectures, create an infrastructure that includes a private network (vRack), and deploy other complex solutions that are not web services.

As a general rule, users with a growing volume of web activity either move up to dedicated servers, or Public Cloud solutions. These services offer more complex, flexible infrastructures that can adapt to a high level of growth.
