Hello,

The renewing of the range of servers starts with the updated top of the range known as the HG.

Background:
---------
The design of the HG 2011 has been done to meet needs of Cloud Computing: Virtualization and Storage. You can customize your HG to specialize in Virtualization
SSD (120GB and 300GB) or in storage (3TB SATA2 or SAS or 1/2TB 300GB/600GB 15kppm SAS). Or do the 2 on the same server.

The lossless 10Gbps network ensures high quality switching (L2) with many packets per second. So you can do storage on the network: for example virtualize
with storage on NAS OVH. Or do HG storage and export volumes to NFS iSCSI or on other servers. In one or vRack not. More:

Finally, you have a server with 2 power supplies on 2 networks in a Tier-4 datacenter where everything is doubled.

The case has 12 hotswap disks that can be changed hot and you can add up to 2 racks with 12 discs each. Or 36 drives per server!

In case of hardware failure, our teams are there 24/7 with a Intervention in 1 hour and repair in 2 hours. The network SLA has increased from 99.95% to guarantee 99.99% this is allows to say that we have less than 4 minutes downtime per month (excluding maintenance. later this year should be 99.99% with maintenance).

In detail:
----------
CPU: HG 2011 is the default with 2 CPUs with 6 cores each. Or 12 cores running at 2.66GHz. TurboBoost with you on a 3.066GHz core. With AES-NI, you can make the SSL/SSH directly in hardware on the CPU. VT for virtualization. Optional: CPU 3.46GHz per core with a TurboBoost to 3.73GHz.

RAM: By default you have 48GB of RAM ECC you can go to option 96GB, 144GB, 192GB 288GB of RAM!

The server is proposed to 399/Month. It's a bit more expensive than the HG 2010 for 3 reasons: we chosen a more powerful CPU (6 cores instead of 4 cores), more RAM by default (48GB instead of 24GB) and we chose to include the new generation megaraid (6Gbps/disc with a stack to accelerate writes disks). In the 2010 range, these 3 reasons have been proposed as an option at about 2500 ...

The discs are optional. We charge and the installation at the start. As a result it 0/month
Choice:
- In 7200 3TB SATA2
- 7200 1TB/2TB SAS
- 300GB/600GB 15000rpm/min SAS
- 120GB/300GB SSD SATA2

With the "business use" 49/month
- RIPE IPs with installation charges and 0/month
- KVM is integrated IPMI server 0/month
- 2nd 10Gbps port connected to the virtual rack

Also be aware that you can change HG 2011 (And HG 2010) when you want. You can always ask us:
- To add more RAM
- To add more hard disks

That is it!

Octave
