  • An infrastructure that guarantees performance and high availability;
  • Exclusive OVH services included in all our ranges.

The VPS, between the web and Cloud

The OVH virtual private servers help you to make the gradual transition from a web hosting plan to managing your own virtual server autonomously. Depending on the growth of your applications and the level of autonomy you want, you can develop your business at unbeatable value for money with the VPS range.

The VPS is an ideal compromise between the freedom of a dedicated server and the flexibility of virtualisation.

This freedom to manage your services enables you to install the operating system of your choice or to choose from any of our LAMP, CMS or e-commerce pre-installed solutions.

Performance and availability

VPS 2016 models ensure a net increase in performance: up to 75% more signs/sec in OpenSSL, 100% improvement of PHP performance and up to 3 times more NGINX req/sec. Likewise, our tests show that our SSD and NVMe drives produce more IOPS, no matter the size of the block.

A freely available and uncomplicated infrastructure is vital to the continuity of your business operations. The Ceph platform gives you high availability, with scalable and fault-tolerant distributed storage, to guarantee that your services stay up-and-running.

Exclusive OVH VPS services

Benefit from the huge added value of our network services. Distribute your traffic with the Load Balancing IP, ensure the continuity of your business operations with the Failover IP, and the fluidity and visibility of your website with the geolocated IP. These services will ensure that your VPS is always in the right place, at the right time.

Protecting your data is a major concern for us. OVH simplifies data backup management on your VPS thanks to snapshots and multiprotocol backups (optional with this range Cloud VPS). Automatic backup will soon be available.
