Hello,

Renewing the range of servers starts with updating the top of the range server known as the HG.

Background:
---------
The design of the HG 2011 has been done to meet the needs of Cloud Computing: Virtualisation and Storage. You can customize your HG to specialize in Virtualisation, 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 virtualised storage on OVH's NAS. Or do HG storage and export volumes to NFS iSCSI or on other servers. In a vRack or not. More:

Finally, you have a server with 2 power supplies on 2 networks in a Tier-4 datacentre 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 1 hour Intervention and repair in 2 hours. The network SLA has increased from 99.95% to a guaranteed 99.99% that allows us to say that we have less than 4 minutes downtime per month (excluding maintenance. later this year it 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. With the TurboBoost you have 3.066GHz on a core. With AES-NI, you can make the SSL/SSH directly in hardware on the CPU. VT for virtualisation. Optional: CPU 3.46GHz per core with a TurboBoost to 3.73GHz.

RAM: By default you have 48GB of RAM ECC you have further options of going to 96GB, 144GB, 192GB or 288GB of RAM!

The server is being offered at €399/Month. It's a bit more expensive than the HG 2010 for 3 reasons: we chose 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 mega-raid (6Gbps/disc with a stack to accelerate write disks). In the 2010 range, these 3 reasons have been proposed as an option at about €2,500 ...

The discs are optional. We charge a once off installation at the start. Then its €0/month
Choice:
- 3TB 7200rpm/min in SATA2
- 7200 1TB/2TB SAS
- 300GB/600GB 15000rpm/min SAS
- 120GB/300GB SSD in SATA2

With "professional use" €49/month
- RIPE IPs with installation charges are then €0/month
- KVM is integrated on the IPMI server at €0/month
- the 2nd 10Gbps port is 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
