Reliable and varied components to meet all your needs.

OVH’s high-end customisable servers allow you to create the optimal configurations for all critical activities. They are perfect for managing large databases, as well as high-performance computing (HPC), big data, artificial intelligence (AI), virtualisation, IoT, etc.


The best hardware to meet your key requirements.

The first step of creating your own HG server is to choose a model. All models are equipped with a 1U or a 2U rack. To guarantee high availability, your server is also equipped with a power supply. You can then customise your configuration, using the various high-end components listed below:

Intel Xeon Scalable processors

The latest generation of very high performance Intel processors is available with our servers. We offer four models, for which our design teams have optimised the range of other components offered. These are the Xeon Scalable processors, available with your server (single or bi-processor).


Xeon Silver 4110

8 cores
16 threads
2.10 GHz/3.00 GHz


Xeon Gold 6132

16 cores
28 threads
2.60 GHz/3.70 GHz


Xeon Gold 6140*

18 cores
36 threads
2.30 GHz/3.70 GHz


Xeon Gold 6154*

18 cores
36 threads
3.00 GHz/3.70 GHz

*Only available as a bi-processor

NVIDIA GPU controllers

Having become indispensable for parallel computing, graphics cards remain great accelerators for multimedia tasks. They are used for a very wide range of applications, such as scientific simulations, 3D modelling, cryptography, data compression, video rendering and (of course) artificial intelligence (AI).


Nvidia Tesla P100

Dedicated to massively parallel computing.


Nvidia Tesla M60

Dedicated to the virtualisation of graphic resources (VDI).


Random Access Memory (RAM)

We only use high-performance ECC memory, designed to be used in datacentres. This memory can be overclocked up to 2.666 MHz on our servers equipped with a Xeon Gold processor.

Our configurations are optimised to use all the memory bandwidth of Xeon processors.

Depending on the chassis, you can create a configuration ranging from 48 GB to 1.5 TB of RAM.


Software RAID or hardware RAID (optional)

The HG range servers all have HBA controllers. This allows for the installation of a software RAID for all the machine’s disks, i.e. up to 10 disks for a 1U chassis and up to 18 disks for a 2U chassis.

Alternatively, it is possible to choose a hardware RAID controller, in order to connect all drives (SATA, SAS or NVMe) as RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50 and 60.

Disk selection

The disk selection is determined by the size of the slots and the number of available connections (SATA/SAS and NVMe).


Our 12 Gbit/s SAS hard drives (HDDs)

Offering an excellent price-to-storage volume ratio, they are designed for massive data storage, static files, backup and archiving. Their lifespan of more than 2 million hours guarantees the durability of your information.


Our 6 Gbit/s SATA 3 SSDs (up to 95,000 IOPS)

With a much higher velocity (25% to 30%) than conventional hard disks, the SSDs chosen by OVH guarantee a very long service life. Designed for datacentres, they are ideal for installing a system, business applications or storage solution, with the best cost/performance ratio.


Our NVMe SSDs (up to 700,000 IOPS)

In contrast to hard disks and SSD SATA drives, they use a PCI Express x8 slot. This results in even faster processing times. In addition, NVMe SSDs provide regular throughput and IOPS while providing a lifetime of at least 2 million hours.


Our Intel Optane 3D XPoint SSDs (up to 550,000 IOPS)

Intel Optane SSDs represent the new generation of storage. They combine the advantages of SSDs and persistent RAM memory. These disks are particularly suitable for random activities, with very short queues (QD2). They also benefit from an equivalent IOPS value in reading and writing.
