OVHcloud VPS solutions are designed to cover all your needs for getting started online. They also offer optimal flexibility, so you can scale them up as your web projects grow. Unlike a dedicated server, for example, you do not need to provision hardware resources well in advance. Simply add the extra resources to your virtual server whenever you need them, directly via the OVHcloud Control Panel — and they will be automatically provisioned to you. With a VPS infrastructure, you only pay for what you need, when you need it — so this strategy will help you massively with cost control.
Our expert teams have designed our virtual servers to deliver optimal performance. Since our virtual private servers are powered by Intel next-generation architecture and NVMe SSD storage, they are based on a highly resilient infrastructure.
A dedicated environment
Unlike shared hosting plans, the hardware resources listed in your VPS specs are fully-dedicated to your projects — and you also get root access. As the superuser and server administrator, you can choose exactly how you host your production platforms and business applications. This adaptable, scalable space is perfect for managing your web projects as they grow.
Simplicity and independence
Our virtual private servers offer all the advantages of dedicated hosting in terms of autonomy, flexibility and dedicated resources — but cost a fraction of the price of dedicated server hosting. We offer a wide range of operating systems to install and configure, so you can choose the best one for you. If you are looking to simplify the way you manage and set up your cloud hosting projects, we also recommend installing a web hosting control panel like Plesk or cPanel.
With OVHcloud VPS servers, traffic is unlimited* — and the maximum bandwidth is 2Gbit/s. If you want to host services and applications that require high bandwidth for an outstanding user experience, this will prove to be a massive cost-saving advantage.
*Excludes datacentres in the Asia-Pacific region.
Use our VPS backup options to secure your data on an external storage space. You can use the Snapshot option directly via the OVHcloud Control Panel, and take snapshot backups of your VPS in just a few clicks.
Looking to deploy a production or pre-production environment for your business applications? If so, a VPS is the perfect option for you. By opting for an OVHcloud infrastructure, you can ensure constant uptime, with very low latency and hardware availability guaranteed by an SLA. This means you get zero downtime and consistent, stable service.
