Advance Server advantages
High-bandwidth public and private networks
The models in the Advance range offer high-bandwidth network connectivity, and unlimited traffic(1). Deploy a server in one of our 37 datacenters across the globe, and you will have access to a 70 Tbps backbone for transferring your data. If your needs grow, you can also subscribe to additional public and/or private bandwidth as an option.

OVHcloud Link Aggregation
The OVHcloud Link Aggregation feature maximises the availability of your dedicated servers. You can enable it via the OVHcloud Control Panel to group your network links (public and private). This ensures service continuity, and a very high-bandwidth private network for your most critical applications and distributed systems.
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 OVHcloud dedicated servers.
1Gbit/s guaranteed and unlimited public bandwidth
Your server has a default minimum bandwidth. Incoming and outgoing traffic is unlimited and free (with the exception of our datacentres located in the Asia-Pacific region). You can also increase your bandwidth.
vRack private network - guaranteed and unlimited
Advance servers come with our vRack private physical network. This means you can create your own cluster, or include your server in an existing infrastructure. It is fully isolated from the internet, and delivered at no extra cost.
OVHcloud Link Aggregation (OLA)
This advanced network feature is exclusive to the world of bare metal! Enable OVHcloud Link Aggregation (OLA) in just a few clicks from the OVHcloud Control Panel, then aggregate your two network links to increase your server’s availability. Please note that this feature is not compatible with Advance-1 servers.
Service Level Agreement - 99.95%
All OVHcloud servers have a 99.95% SLA, ensuring the best availability for your business applications.
Intel Software Guard Extensions (SGX)
Intel Software Guard Extensions (SGX) is available with Intel Xeon E processors. This technology delivers advanced hardware and RAM security encryption features, in order to isolate parts of code and data that are specific to each application. You can enable the feature via the OVHcloud Control Panel.
AMD Secure Encrypted Virtualization (SEV)
Integrated with AMD EPYC processors, SEV helps protect your data’s privacy and integrity, by encrypting each virtual machine with one of the 509 unique encryption keys known only to the processor. SEV requires activation in the guest OS and hypervisor.
Operating systems and applications
Recommended uses for an Advance dedicated server
Enjoy dedicated web hosting for your website or e-commerce platform, without additional costs for traffic, and without compromising on security.
Create your infrastructure with dedicated servers, and deploy your business applications on fleets of virtual machines (VMs) or containers in just a few minutes.
Get a high-availability infrastructure with confidential computing features native to Intel and AMD processors, to ensure the integrity of your sensitive data.
Support and documentation
We offer a range of documentation and online support to assist you in setting up and configuring your dedicated server.
What do the setup fees consist of?
The setup fees cover the cost of assembling and connecting your server in our datacentres. The initial fees are only billed once, when the service is set up. This means they are not linked to your commitment period.
The installation costs of your dedicated server are free of charge for any commitment of a minimum of 12 months.
When can I order the options offered?
The options are available at the server configuration step. You can also order and enable options directly via the OVHcloud Control Panel, after your service has been delivered.
What are the advantages of the vRack private network?
The vRack is a private network that is isolated from the internet. This means you can create your own cluster, or connect your server to an existing infrastructure — and you can do all of this at no extra cost.
Through the vRack private network, you can secure the exchanges between your web server and your database. To do this, you must disable the public IP address of the dedicated server you want to protect.
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. By renting a dedicated server in an OVHcloud datacentre, you get 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 OVHcloud private network (vRack), a wide range of 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:
- Virtual machine hot migration.
- The ability to optimise resource usage on a dedicated server.
- The ability to separate the different services offered by a business, for higher security.
What is a cloud computing server?
Cloud computing is based on the use of physical servers, such as those from the Infrastructure range. They are generally divided into virtual private servers, then configured onto a network to offer a variety of resources such as applications, storage spaces and other computing environments. Technologies like VMware and OpenStack can be used to set up cloud-computing infrastructures. By doing this, you can set up a range of services such as IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service), SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) and PaaS (Platform-as-a-service).
