Bare metal servers for intensive workloads

OVHcloud has introduced new dedicated High Grade Bare Metal servers featuring top-of-the-line Intel Xeon Gold 5th Generation processors.

Further democratizing innovation, new Bare Metal servers are aimed at demanding, mission critical and sensitive workloads, such as confidential computing, HPC and virtualization. The new OVHcloud High Grade Bare Metal line benefits from Intel TDX technology as well as new built-in accelerators for added performance, all the while answering the many challenges of hyperconverged and storage infrastructures.

At the heart of the new OVHcloud HCI, SDS and STOR lines lies Intel Emerald Rapids microarchitecture. It provides more compute and faster memory while improving security. Technologies like Intel TDX stand for strengthened VM isolation offering the most straightforward path to a greater security, compliance and control for legacy apps.

“We’re excited to deliver a higher throughput and an improved efficiency with our 5th Gen Intel Xeon processors, offering increased confidentiality at the VM level without compromising performance. With its built-in accelerator engines, 5th Gen Intel Xeon speeds up AI workloads, encryption, data compression, and data movement between nodes”, said Jean-Laurent Philippe, CTO at Intel EMEA.

“We are thrilled to refresh our most advanced solutions with the latest and greatest x86 CPU options in configurations that address the many needs of our customers, from solving hyper-converged infrastructures challenges to addressing the ever-growing needs for storage all with the benefits of our trusted cloud offering an unmatched performance-price ratio” said Yaniv Fdida, Chief Product Technology Officer OVHcloud.

New Intel Xeon Gold 5th Generation powered HGR-HCI and HGR-SDS lineup

The HGR-HCI lineup is aimed at hyperconverged infrastructures. It features Intel’s fifth generation of Xeon Gold processors in a dual-processor configuration. Starting with Intel Xeon Gold 5515+ in a 2x8 cores (2x16 threads) configuration (HGR-HCI-i1) it goes up to Intel Xeon Gold 6554S in 2x36 cores (2x72 threads) configurations (HGR-HCI-i4). Equipped with 256 GB of base DDR5 memory, all HGR-HCI-i flavors come with 2x960 GB SSD storage option that can be further customized when ordering with additional SSD capacity up to 3.84 TB.

The HGR-SDS lineup targets software defined storage infrastructures for use cases such as Database, Platform Object Storage and Big Data. The range is now equipped with Intel Xeon Gold Fifth Generation chips in a dual-processor configuration. HGR-SDS-1 Bare Metal server is powered by an Intel Xeon Gold 5515+ CPU in a 2x8 cores (2x16 threads) configuration and HGR-SDS-2 features Intel Xeon Gold 6542Y in 2x24 cores (2x48 threads) configuration. Both HGR-SDS-1 and HGR-SDS-2 are loaded with 256 GB of DDR5 memory (can be configured to up to 1.5 TB) and feature a 2x960GB based system SSD with options for SSD based storage at 3.84 TB, 7.68 TB or 15.36 TB.

The heavy storage variant of Bare Metal servers, HGR-STOR, designed for use cases such as archiving, disaster recovery and databases has also been updated. OVHcloud HGR-STOR-1 is now powered by the Intel Xeon Gold 6554S in a single processor configuration. With 36 cores and 72 threads, it comes 128 GB of DDR5 (up to 768 GB). The HGR-STOR-1 is equipped with a 2x 960 GB SSD-based storage and boasts additional storage of up to 36x22 TB SAS HDD for a whopping 792 TB in total. Customers can opt for a cache option with capacity up to 2x 15 TB to further optimize their storage performance.

Unmetered Guaranteed Bandwidth with up to 25 Gbps Private Network

OVHcloud’s new HGR-HCI-i, HGR-SDS and HGR-STOR-1 benefit from all the advantages of dedicated servers when it comes to flexibility, control, performance, and availability as well as 1 Gbps to 10 Gbps guaranteed and unmetered public bandwidth and up to 25 Gbps of unmetered private bandwidth. Through this offering, OVHcloud also provides companies with the best possible support for their workloads, environments, and ad-hoc technologies, while guaranteeing predictable pricing.

To further streamline resiliency, OVHcloud’s new HGR-HCI-i, HGR-SDS and HGR-STOR-1 servers benefit from a private network built from the ground up for redundancy. With two 25 Gbps links, the private network of those servers ensures critical applications and their data remain accessible so business operations continue uninterrupted.
