Choose the dedicated server that's right for you

Newcomers to OVHcloud™ will quickly notice that we offer a large range of server options, grouped into “families” that can sometimes be difficult at first to navigate.

Data center innovation: Lower PUE means savings for our customers

One number that OVHcloud has been obsessed with since its early days designing data centers is the Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of its data centers.

It’s one of the big reasons OVHcloud is able to offer reduced pricing.
