Hyperconverged infrastructure


Hyperconverged infrastructure on a Bare Metal server

Hyperconverged infrastructures are software-defined infrastructures that group all computing, storage and network features. They offer advantages like optimising resource usage, reducing operating costs, and increasing productivity. With OVHcloud’s high-performance, certified bare-metal dedicated servers, you can support your project under the best conditions, at the lowest cost.

Deploy your hyperconverged infrastructure with OVHcloud servers

A hyperconverged infrastructure requires a deployment strategy that includes compute, storage, and networking elements. You need to be able to scale it to fit your own needs, by adding additional resources and servers. Our Bare Metal servers deliver unparalleled computing power, high-performance storage, and simple, scalable resource allocation. They also hold certifications such as ISO 27001, 27017, 27018, 27701 and HDS — so they meet the very strictest security requirements. Their flexibility means they can be used to host a wide range of compatible applications, while offering resilience guaranteed by an SLA.

A high-performance private network

Our network guarantees up to 50Gbit/s* private bandwidth between the servers in your cluster. Direct communication between each node provides better performance for high volumes of traffic, and data transfer is always smooth.

Manage your costs

Your entire infrastructure is billed transparently. With unlimited ingress and egress traffic at no extra cost and no other variable charges, like the amount of data stored, you can easily predict your spending.

HCI OVHcloud

Description

Create your hyperconverged infrastructure cluster (HCI) on Bare Metal servers. You can install whatever you need: websites, CRM, ERP, databases, applications, and much more.

The Scale and High Grade (HGR-HCI) ranges have all the features required to meet the needs of converged infrastructures. For the most resource-intensive projects, opt for HGR-HCI servers. They offer more power (dual processors), flexibility (more disk technology), and scalability (up to 24 hot-swap disks).

The servers in these ranges include four 25Gbit/s network links. You can dedicate them to communication between the nodes in your cluster, to get private bandwidth of up to 100Gbit/s.

You also get high system availability, to guarantee instant access to data.

Options and services included

  • A range of memory and storage options.
  • 25Gbit/s private bandwidth guaranteed on Scale servers, and 50Gbit/s guaranteed on High Grade servers (optional).
  • OVHcloud Link Aggregation (OLA) available and enabled by default at no additional cost.

What is a hyperconverged infrastructure?

Hyperconverged (HCI) infrastructures combine all of the storage, network and computing elements into a simple software management system. By simplifying the way you use your infrastructure and removing the complexity of standard 3-layer architecture, you can use it to create a public or private cloud, for example.

The hyperconverged infrastructure networks all of the storage, and distributes it between the different servers. You can add more servers to increase the resources available within the infrastructure. This saves a lot of time for teams managing the system, so they can focus on other value-added tasks. At a company level, investments in this type of infrastructure are greatly optimised, as the setup and management time is reduced. Resources are allocated and used optimally, for a reduced TCO.
