Maximized space to store and back up your data
Servers with higher disk space for storing large volumes of data, archiving, or performing backups. Choose from servers with the best price-storage ratio, equipped with high-performance, reliable disks. In our Storage range, you will find servers with higher storage capacities and write speeds, to cover all uses.
Choose dedicated, guaranteed resources to optimize availability for your data.
The advantages of storage servers
Hot swapping: the ability to change disks without turning off the server
By hot swapping, you can replace a defective disk, or a disk that needs to be removed from the server, without causing any service interruptions. The ability to do this is vital for a high-availability infrastructure. Hot swapping can be performed on our FS-48T, FS-72T and FS-MAX servers.
vRack: the OVH private network included
Along with its high storage capacity, the series uses the OVH private network (vRack) by default. With vRack, you can connect your OVH products to one another (dedicated servers, VPS, Public Cloud instances) via a secure network, whether they are based in the same data center or various OVH data centers across the globe.
- Optimized servers with up to 216 TB disk space, to give you the best storage-price ratio. SATA, SSD and NVMe disks available as an option for FS-MAX servers (add up to 36 disks to your server).
- RAM ECC (Error Correcting Code). The ECC code prevents your data from being corrupted, guaranteeing stability and security. Available for all series.
Uses for a storage server
Designed to store large volumes of data, the servers in this series are ideal as backup storage spaces. Create secure backups of your operating systems or other files.
For projects that require many files to be readily available (images, videos, etc.), our servers have 500 Mbit/s guaranteed bandwidth, which is perfect for video streaming and file sharing.
High-volume database storage
Our storage servers can host up to 216 TB of data. You can use your server to host databases, or store SQL backups.
This action involves creating a copy of the data your would like to back up, and storing it separately from where your data is hosted. Sometimes the data is stored in an independent folder, but located on the same disk. The backup must be stored separately from the space that your data is originally stored in. This way, your data will be protected against any incidents that could result in data loss or corruption.
Based on a full data backup, a differential backup creates a backup containing the data that has been created or modified after the full backup. Each differential backup compiles the modifications integrated into the previous backup, and also includes the new modifications. As a result, this requires more storage space than an incremental backup, but requires less processing time if a full restore of archived files needs to be carried out.
Incremental backup is an option that might interest you if you are looking to save storage space. Incremental backup is launched on D+1 (D = day) after a full data backup is carried out. On each backup, the data that has been modified, as well as any new data, is incremented in comparison to D-1. However, a full backup requires more time to restore than a differential backup, as each backup that has been incremented must be re-copied onto the disk.
