HG 2011 for Cloud Computing
13-04-11, 21:24

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

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
- 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!
