The advantages of a Scale server
High quality for high performance
Harness the power of OVHcloud expertise. We carefully select the best components on the market, then optimise them with intensive testing to give you unrivalled solutions. You can then focus on your core business, by relying on servers that can support strategic and varied workloads.
Guaranteed high-speed connectivity
With four network links, servers from the Scale range guarantee availability and up to 25Gbit/s* of throughput. With the OVHcloud Link Aggregation feature included, you can dedicate all or part of the links to your internal network (vRack), to ensure that data is transferred between servers within your infrastructure.
*The OVHcloud Link Aggregation feature must be enabled and configured to use all four network links.
A highly resilient infrastructure
Scale servers deliver an optimal balance of power and availability. They also have a high guarantee level, with a 99.99% Service Level Agreement (SLA). All platforms are based on an architecture with redundant electrical circuits, cooling system, network, and power supply.
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).
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.
Service Level Agreement - 99.99%
All of the servers in the range have a 99.99% SLA, ensuring the best availability for your business applications.
vRack private network
Your server is delivered with our private physical network — the vRack. 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
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.
Dual power supply (2xPSU)
Power supply is one of the key components of guaranteeing an infrastructure’s availability. Depending on how critical your project is, a dual power supply is an important aspect of avoiding any downtime. Service interruptions can prove costly in terms of both business and brand image.
Operating systems and applications
Optimise your workloads and data analytics by creating clusters based on balanced, high-performance machines.
Choose the best database for you — from options such as MySQL, SQL Server, MongoDB, Redis, MariaDB, Cassandra, FileMaker and Postgre — with high-availability, high-performance servers.
To meet the ever-increasing need for data, processing power and RAM, deploy virtual machines on 100% dedicated bare-metal resources.
Support and documentation
We offer a range of documentation and online support to assist you in setting up and configuring your dedicated server.
What should a Scale server be used for?
Scale servers are well-suited to complex organisations that require resource-intensive IT environments, and quick scalability. With this new dedicated server range, you can run resource-intensive and varied workloads.
Where would my data be hosted?
Scale servers are deployed in our datacentres across several continents. This means you can host your data in a datacentre to meet specific regulatory requirements, get improved performance, and minimise latency.
What is the vRack private network?
To secure transmissions between machines within an infrastructure, it is important to use a secure, private physical network. You can use our vRack private network to connect all of your servers, and spread your workloads within a distributed cluster.
Are Scale servers ISO 27001 certified?
Scale dedicated servers are ISO/IEC 27001 certified, which is a guarantee that strict data security processes are implemented.
Why choose a professional dedicated server?
A professional dedicated server is a high-quality solution that offers many services and features. To meet a wide range of uses and business needs, OVHcloud selects the best components to design configurations with high-level performance.
Our servers come with professional services, such as a storage space for your backups, a private network, and other security features. They are offered without an overlay — so you are free to install the operating system and software of your choice.
As your web projects grow, our professional dedicated servers offer all the compatibility you need to build the perfect infrastructure. Choose from the configurations we offer — you can order a server that offers the resources you need, or customise its resources to suit your requirements. Finally, Bare Metal dedicated servers can be connected to our Public Cloud and Hosted Private Cloud solutions, so you can use them to create your own hybrid cloud.
