Big data and Analytics on a Bare Metal server
Big data projects require infrastructures that are sized for mass data processing. Get the most out of your data with the raw power of OVHcloud Bare Metal dedicated servers.
Meet the challenges of big data with OVHcloud servers
Bare Metal cloud servers have been designed to meet the challenges of big data, with security at the heart of the architecture. They deliver all the computing power and storage you need for real-time data processing.
Our Bare Metal servers are delivered with no virtual layer, and offer maximum raw performance. They are equipped with NVMe disks, and the latest generation Intel and AMD processors — so you get the best hardware for big data usage. You can very easily add resources to expand your infrastructure.
A resilient network
Our 4-link high-speed network ensures service continuity when needed, and optimal resilience guaranteed by a 99.99% SLA. Traffic is unlimited, so you will not need to worry about any extra costs.
A fully-isolated infrastructure
Your servers are fully-dedicated to your project. This guarantees both stable, consistent performance, and security for sensitive data.
High disk capacity
With up to 360TB of storage space, get very high read-write rates (IOPS) with the power of SSD technology.
OVHcloud Bare Metal servers are adapted for building Hadoop clusters. Deploy and connect multiple data nodes via our guaranteed 50Gbit/s internal network (vRack) on the High Grade range. You can also use a range of tools and projects from the Hadoop ecosystem (Apache Spark, Kettle, Ouzi or Mawazo) to simplify your data management and business analytics processes.
Expand your capacity on demand. You can do this by adding storage disks, changing the hot-swap disks available on our High Grade range, or increasing the nodes in your cluster via the vRack.
Options and services included
- A range of memory and storage options.
- 50Gbit/s private bandwidth guaranteed on High Grade (optional).
- OVHcloud Link Aggregation (OLA) is available at no additional cost.

How is a big data infrastructure built?
Based in part on the project’s needs, any big data infrastructure has a common foundation: hardware. This usage requires servers with high computing power (CPU), high volumes of RAM, and large amounts of storage space (hard disks, SSD and NVMe). These servers need to communicate over a high-speed network, with enough transfer speed to handle the multiple processing required for the big data project to work. Big data infrastructures gather and store an enormous volume of data, analyse it with the shortest possible processing times, and ultimately give the IT teams in charge of the project an exploitable result. The best way of building a big data infrastructure will vary depending on the technology used. There are many different technologies that offer their own advantages, complexities, and responses to business needs. These include Apache Hadoop, Apache Spark, MongoDB, Cassandra, Rapidminer, and many others.
