Reliable and varied components to meet all your needs.
OVH’s high-end customizable servers allow you to create 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), virtualization, IoT, etc.
The best hardware to meet your highest requirements.
The first step in creating your 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 customize 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 you four models, for which our design teams have optimized the choice of the other components offered. These are the Xeon Scalable processors available with your server (single or bi-processor).
Xeon Silver 4110
2.10 GHz / 3.00 GHz
Xeon Gold 6132
2.60 GHz / 3.70 GHz
Xeon Gold 6140
2.30 GHz / 3.70 GHz
Xeon Gold 6154*
3.00 GHz / 3.70 GHz
*Available only as a bi-processor
NVIDIA GPU controllers
Now indispensable for parallel computing tasks, graphics cards are still great accelerators for multimedia tasks. They are used in a very wide range of sectors 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 virtualization of graphic resources (VDI)
Random Access Memory (RAM)
We only use high performance ECC memory, designed to be used in data centers. This memory can be overclocked up to 2 666 MHz on our servers equipped with a Xeon Gold processor.
Our configurations are optimized to use all the memory bandwidth of the Xeon processors.
Depending on the chassis, you can create a configuration ranging from 49 GB to 1.5 TB of RAM.
Software RAID or hardware RAID (optional)
The HG series servers all have an HBA controller. It allows to setup a software RAID for all disks on a machine, i.e. up to 10 disks for a 1U chassis and up to 18 disks for a 2U chassis.
It is also possible to choose a hardware RAID controller as an option to connect all the disks (SATA, SAS or NVMe) in RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50 and 60.
Disk selection is determined by the size of the slots and the number of available connections (SATA/SAS and NVMe).
Our 12 Gbits/s SAA 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 data.
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 data centers, 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)
As opposed 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 3D SSDs XPoint Intel Optane (up to 550,000 IOPS)
Intel Optane SSDs are the new generation of storage. They combine the advantages of SSDs with persistent RAM memory. These disks are particularly optimized for random activities, with very short queues (QD2). They also benefit from an equivalent IOPS value in reading and writing.
