Deploy your applications quickly
The Advance range is designed for small businesses that want to invest in versatile servers that fit their business needs.
You can install your server easily, in less than 120 seconds, to host your e-commerce site or business application.
Start your first hosted infrastructure with complete peace of mind: your users' data is protected in one of our 28 datacentres around the world, fully accessible to them.
Your first server can easily be interconnected with additional servers and OVH cloud services to meet your future needs.
Advance Server advantages
Each server has a default bandwidth and unlimited data volume. If you want to increase your bandwidth, this option is available with the Advance range.
IPv4 and IPv6 addresses
Each server has a public IPv4 address and an IPv6 address range. As an option, you can rent additional IPv4 addresses for your dedicated server (up to 256 per machine).
To guarantee maximum security for your infrastructures, an anti-DDoS system is included with all of your OVH dedicated servers. It ensures the continuity of service of your applications in case of attack.
Many distributions are offered for automatic installation via the OVH Control Panel. This includes various operating systems (Windows Server, Debian, Ubuntu or CentOS), Plesk and cPanel Web management interfaces, and also Microsoft SQL Server for databases. Virtualisation solutions, like VMware, CoreOS and Windows Hyper-V, are also available.
500 GB of storage space
Each dedicated server has a storage space of 500 GB available, dedicated to backups. This space, completely independent of the server, allows you to store your data and configuration files. The storage capacity can be increased, if needed.
Options for Advance Servers
Additional public bandwidth and guarantees
Our dedicated servers have a default public bandwidth. Depending on the needs of your business, you can add additional guaranteed bandwidth. This ensures you maintain a constant flow for your incoming and outgoing traffic.
Additional IP addresses
You can associate up to 256 IP addresses to your server, with no monthly fees. Only installation costs of €2 ex. VAT are charged. IP addresses and/or IP blocks are transferable between OVH servers, allowing you to keep them when changing machines. Furthermore, additional IPs can be geolocated in 14 countries.
Why rent a dedicated server in our datacentres?
An assured guarantee
Hosting a server on your premises involves securing your computer and electrical network, plus regular hardware maintenance. Renting a dedicated server in an OVH datacentre means enjoying the full range of guarantees you need for a highly available and efficient machine. Each of our servers benefits from next-generation components, in-house assembly for delivery in record time, backup options, connection to the OVH private network (vRack), many compatible distributions, and a powerful anti-DDoS solution.
What is virtualisation (i.e. virtual servers)?
It is possible to create one or more virtual servers with a physical server via emulation software. These use part of the resources allocated to them by the software. This method has several advantages, including:
• live migration of a virtual machine
• the ability to optimise resource usage on a dedicated server
• the ability to separate the different services offered by a business, for higher security
