IPv4 and IPv6 addresses
Each server has a public IPv4 address and an IPv6 address range. As an option, you can rent additional IPv4 addresses for your dedicated server (up to 256 per machine).
To guarantee maximum security for your infrastructures, an anti-DDoS system is included with all OVHcloud dedicated servers. It ensures service continuity for your applications, in the event of an attack.
You can install a number of operating systems automatically via the OVHcloud Control Panel. This includes various operating systems (Windows Server, Debian, Ubuntu or CentOS), Plesk and cPanel web management interfaces, and also Microsoft SQL Server for databases. Virtualisation solutions, like VMware, CoreOS and Windows Hyper-V, are also available.
Assistance and support
By renting servers from OVHcloud, you get technical support via telephone and email. You can also chat to our advisors, who are ready to help. We also offer a range of guides and an online help centre to assist you in installing and managing your services.
500GB of backup space
Each dedicated server comes with a 500GB storage space, dedicated to backups. This space is completely separate from the server, and is designed for you to store your data and configuration files. The storage capacity can be increased, if needed.
Your server has a default minimum bandwidth. Ingress and egress traffic is unlimited and free (with the exception of our datacentres located in the Asia-Pacific region). You also have the option of increasing the volume of your bandwidth.
vRack private network
Your server is provided with our private physical network — the vRack. This means you can create your own cluster, or include your server in an existing infrastructure. It is fully isolated from the internet, and delivered at no extra cost.
IPMI and KVM on IP
The IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management Interface) console can be accessed via the OVHcloud Control Panel or API, and provides you with a direct connection to your dedicated server. If your server becomes unavailable, you can keep control of it via its public IP address. You can also use this administration system to monitor your server’s hardware components.
