More about OVH dedicated hosting
What is a dedicated server?
A dedicated server, or computing server, is a machine with its own dedicated physical resources. Unlike a virtual server, which uses a portion of a machine's physical resources for its virtualisation technology, a dedicated server gives you access to all of the machine's available RAM, storage, and computing power. Applied to cloud computing, dedicated server solutions can also be referred to as 'bare-metal', highlighting the physical availability of the machine's resources in contrast to standard cloud solutions based on virtual instances.
Which dedicated server should you choose?
The configurations used for our dedicated hosting solution are designed to suit professional needs. Depending on your usage, you might need a configuration with more RAM, as much storage space as possible, or a higher processing capacity. The variety of OVH dedicated server ranges differ from one another in terms of their bandwidth, and the capacity of their associated services. You can also get anti-DDoS protection adapted for online gaming, the vRack private network with up to 10 Gbit/s bandwidth to connect your dedicated server to your infrastructure, and hardRAID. Choose the dedicated server that fits your needs.
Cloud, shared hosting, or a dedicated server?
There are two main factors that make a dedicated server different from a cloud instance. Firstly, the machine's raw performance is different: there is no virtualisation layer consuming resources on a dedicated server, so you are guaranteed full use of the physical resources. The second difference is the level of administration required. With a dedicated server, you manage everything from its configuration to the data hosted on it, and you are also responsible for ensuring that it is secure. This way, you have full control, and can dedicate all of your server's resources to a single purpose, which is essential for certain business software applications, for example. The main benefit of a dedicated solution is the total freedom you get as a user. However, if you would like to avoid technical management and concentrate solely on your web project, then OVH Public Cloud instances are the best solution for you. Just need to build a simple website? Take a look at our shared hosting solutions, which offer you a hosting platform at an unbeatable cost, with configuration fully managed by OVH.
What can a dedicated server be used for?
There are many uses for a dedicated server: big data, machine learning, website and application hosting, backups and storage, infrastructure virtualisation, server clusters, business applications (CRM, ERP), and even online game hosting. This is why we offer several different dedicated server ranges, each of which are designed for a specific set of needs. Our sales and support teams will help you with your project, and can give you advice on which server to choose.
