Customizable high-grade bare metal servers help reduce the growing burden on data center professionals by significantly simplifying the management of the underlying infrastructure
OVHcloud®, a leading global cloud provider, today announced the availability of two new ranges of powerful bare metal servers. Designed in partnership with leading hardware manufacturers, OVHcloud Scale and High-Grade servers offer a cost-effective hosting solution with the ability to quickly automate and scale resource allocation to meet the demands of complex and resource-intensive tasks such as:
- Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI)
- Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI)
- High Performance Computing (HPC)
- Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning (AI & ML)
- Software Defined Storage (SDS)
- Cloud Gaming platforms
“These are powerful, flexible, and highly configurable servers. What differentiates them is, unlike a typical bare metal server where the configuration is locked-in at delivery, these machines will be scalable from the OVHcloud Control Panel. Customers will have the capability to add and change hard drives, add more RAM, or change the configuration without the fear of data being wiped away in the process. They can manage their investment by adding resources as their data grows or remove resources if necessary,” said Jeffrey Gregor, General Manager, OVHcloud US.
More data gives businesses bigger opportunities to extract insights and create value, but this requires bigger computing power. As IT professionals grapple with the challenges of the influx of data, they want the best performance to support it. OVHcloud Bare Metal servers provide fully dedicated performance in a secure, single-tenant environment, with direct access to physical resources. Because resources are not being shared, no hypervisor layer is needed, allowing more of the server’s processing power to be allocated to the application.
OVHcloud Scale and High-Grade Bare Metal servers are an excellent choice for businesses that need to accelerate their journey to the cloud without refactoring and without reengineering their entire infrastructure. These servers are accessible in as little as 120 seconds for standard configurations, and come equipped with:
- Extremely powerful AMD Epyc™ and Intel® Xeon® Gold CPUs with up to 64 cores and 128 threads.
- Storage capacities with up to 24 3.84TB NVMe drives that are incredibly fast and run at many times the speed of traditional SSDs to store and retrieve data quickly.
- UP to 2TBs of RAM for accessing and transferring large amounts of data without degradation of performance.
“Security is a top concern in big data analytics. Our Scale and High-Grade ranges of Bare Metal servers directly address this pain point for IT professionals with strong security standards and certifications. By utilizing OVHcloud’s private network, vRack, customers can privatize the connection of their data-heavy systems protecting them from the outside world,” said Pascal Jaillon, Senior Vice President, Product and Digital Accounts, OVHcloud US.
