Your custom-made server
Each premium customisable (HG) server is designed to support intensive production and resource-intensive usage, while offering high service availability. They are the perfect choice to support your big data, machine learning and critical database workloads.
A number of components are available, so that you can customise your server to suit your usage. The other advantage of these servers is that if you need more resources, you can scale them up in just a few clicks.
The advantages of a HG server
High-quality components for high performance
With 20 years of experience in server design, OVHcloud guarantees you the best possible performance. Our teams carefully select the best components on the market and optimise them through intensive testing, then deliver first-class results. Take the stress out of data hosting, and focus on your business by opting for a HG server
High availability for critical uses
HG dedicated servers are delivered with the highest guarantee level possible, including a redundant architecture on their electrical circuits, cooling, network and power supply. With this range, you can also replace a disk without any service interruptions.
The vRack private network
When securing transmissions between machines within an infrastructure, a secure, private physical network is essential.
Our vRack private network establishes direct physical connections between all your servers. Distribute workloads, isolate your databases, or connect your nodes and servers through a 10Gbit/s private network
IPv4 and IPv6 addresses
Each server comes with a public IPv4 address, and an IPv6 address. You can buy additional IPv4 addresses for your dedicated server (up to 256 per machine).
500GB of backup storage space
Each dedicated server has a storage space of 500GB dedicated to backups. This space is completely independent to the server, and allows you to store your data and configuration files. The storage capacity can be increased, if needed.
All OVHcloud dedicated servers include optimum anti-DDoS technology to provide you with the best protection against complex and sophisticated attacks, and ensure business continuity.
Public bandwidth - 1Gbit/s
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.
A range of operating systems are available to install 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.
Optimise your workloads and data analytics by creating clusters, based on balanced machines with high storage density.
Effortlessly create your perfect server infrastructure to manage the volume, variety, and speed of data, while harnessing its full value by running analytics.
Make the most of Apache Hadoop and Apache Spark, with Cloudera, Hortonworks, or MapR.
The rise of artificial intelligence is leading companies to use increasingly powerful servers for high-performance computing (HPC).
This computing capacity is essential for delivering the computational loads required for artificial intelligence, such as neural network modelling, image recognition, structural analysis, and fraud detection.
The computing power needed to drive neural networks is most often provided by Nvidia P100 graphics processors.
Hadoop is an open-source framework, based on the Java language. It is designed to facilitate the creation of distributed and scalable applications. Hadoop manages high-volume data processing in distributed environments.
Operating in clusters, its distributed file system promotes a high rate of data transfer between nodes. It allows the system to work uninterrupted, even if a component stops working.
Elasticsearch is a powerful search and analysis engine, based on an Apache Software project. It is free software, written in Java.
It provides a full-text, multi-tenant distributed search engine with a RESTful API, the entities of which are saved as JSON documents.
It can solve a growing number of tasks due to its scalability, with a clustering and load balancing system. It can also rebuild data lost due to (for example) a defective node.
Your questions answered
💰 What do the setup fees consist of?
The setup fees cover the cost of assembling and connecting your server in our datacentres. The initial fees are only billed once, when the service is set up. This means they are not linked to your commitment period.
The setup fees for your dedicated server are included for any commitment periods of 12 months or longer.
📝 When can I order the options offered?
The options are available at the server configuration step. You can also order and enable options directly via the OVHcloud Control Panel, after your service has been delivered.
🦾 What are the advantages of the vRack private network?
The vRack is a physical private network that is isolated from the internet. This means you can create your own cluster, or connect your server to an existing infrastructure. And you can do all of this at no extra cost.
Through the vRack private network, you can secure the exchanges between your web server and your database. To do this, you must disable the public IP address of the dedicated server you want to protect.
