OVHcloud improves your journey to the cloud with its new range of Bare Metal servers

OVHCloud has just announced that it is expanding its range of dedicated servers with new solutions focused on density for maximum performance in both computing power and storage capacity. As the company explains in a statement, by expanding its range of performance-oriented servers, OVHcloud ensures that companies can upgrade their infrastructure to address their most critical data challenges.

The Bare Metal Advance-6 and Scale-7 servers are the first to use data center processors from AMD and Intel and benefit from their technological refinement.

  • The new Bare Metal Scale-7 servers, powered by AMD EPYC 64-core (Zen 3) processors, are ideal for the most intensive workloads, especially in high-performance computing or virtualization and containerization environments.
  • Bare Metal Advance-6 servers are distinguished by their 3rd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors and Intel SGX technology. This technology addresses the specific challenges of confidential computing for use cases such as federated learning, notably present in the healthcare sector. Here, the confidentiality of the data is not only vital, but is preserved during the training phases.

the new server HGR-STOR-2 is a unique data storage and archiving solution that offers up to 1.4 petabytes (1400 terabytes) of capacity. The combination of SAS drives, up to 102 in a JBOD chassis, and optional SSD drives provides low-latency, high-performance data access.

Tailor-made for large accounts and institutions, the HGR-STOR-2 allows the creation of a fully configurable data lake. It also takes advantage of a very high-speed private connection (100 Gb/s guaranteed) to be able to integrate into a cluster or with other OVHcloud products and services. With full control over disks and volumes, customers benefit from great responsiveness to their most specific storage needs, ranging from file archiving to large database backup.

On the other hand, OVHcloud’s new Bare Metal offer inherits all the advantages of dedicated servers in terms of flexibility, control, performance and availability, as well as unlimited bandwidth. In this way, OVHcloud offers companies the best possible support for their workloads, environments and ad-hoc technologies, while guaranteeing predictable prices.
