IPv4 and IPv6 addresses
Each server has a public IPv4 address and an IPv6 address range. As an option, you can rent additional IPv4 addresses for your dedicated server (up to 256 per machine).
To provide maximum security for your infrastructure DDoS protection is included with your OVHcloud dedicated servers. It ensures the continuity of service of your applications in case of attack.
Many distributions are offered for automatic installation via the OVHcloud Control Panel. This includes various operating systems (Windows® Server, Debian, Ubuntu or CentOS), Plesk and cPanel Web management interfaces, and Microsoft® SQL Server for databases. Virtualization solutions, like VMware®, CoreOS and Windows® Hyper-V, are also available.
Assistance and support
By hosting your servers from OVHcloud, you benefit from technical support via chat available Monday-Friday from 9 AM - 5:30 PM ET. In addition, a range of guides and an online Help Center is available to assist you during the installation and administration of your services.
Your server has a default minimum bandwidth. Ingress and egress traffic is unlimited and free (with the exception of our datacentres located in the Asia-Pacific region). You also have the option of increasing the volume of your bandwidth.
vRack private network
Your server is provided with our private physical network — vRack. This means you can create your own cluster, or include your server in an existing infrastructure. It is fully isolated from the internet, and delivered at no extra cost.
When ordering your dedicated server, you have the option of customizing its storage capacity with a wide range of drives.
IPMI and KVM on IP
The IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management Interface) console, accessible from the OVHcloud Control Panel or API, provides you with a direct connection to your dedicated server. If your server becomes unavailable for any reason, you can keep control of it via its public IP address. This administration system also allows you to monitor the hardware components of your server.
