OVHcloud has new bare metal servers, as SBG2 recovery continues

The two new bare metal server ranges are optimized for resource-intensive duties, such as software program outlined storage (SDS), hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI), huge information, analytics, archiving, digital desktop infrastructure (VDI), orchestration and containerization, says OVHcloud.

The servers use AMD Epyc and Intel Xeon Gold CPUs, and embrace OVHcloud’s hyperlink aggregation know-how, which mix community interfaces for every server, to spice up its availability and maintain it remoted and protected from exterior threats. The new choices embrace limitless site visitors and a 99.99 % anti-DDoS safety service degree settlement (SLA).

The Scale vary contains six servers with bandwidth of 25Gbps, and a 99.99 % uptime SLA. The High-Grade vary has 10 servers with bandwidth as much as 50Gbps. Some of the Scale and High-Grade servers may also be included in forthcoming Nutanix and NetApp packages from OVHcloud.

Restoration continues

Meanwhile, work continues to revive servers and, the place attainable, information belonging to prospects hit by the disastrous Strasbourg hearth in March, which destroyed the whole of the SBG2 data center and broken the SBG1 facility to an extent the place OVHcloud abandoned efforts to reopen it for now.

Servers are being changed and relocated in SBG3 and SBG4. The newest replace from OVHcloud founder Octave Klaba reveals that 92 % of bare metal servers at the moment are up, together with 84 % of digital personal servers (VPS) and 86 % of public cloud infrastructure (pCI)

“We are near ending all of the stuff on the Public Cloud,” Klaba tweeted to prospects on Sunday. “If you see the issues that don’t give you the results you want, pls DM me.”

Earlier within the weekend, Klaba detailed the choices for purchasers. For pCC/HPC prospects, “The restarting / the migrations are in progress with the cust, as a result of some custs wish to consolidate their infra (due to the new HW). If the cust doesn’t reply us, we restart the infra « as it was » with new HW.”

OpenStack public cloud prospects ought to have an e mail explaining the process: “On Public Cloud, we’re NOT allowed to restart the service. The cust has to do this, if wanted.”

For digital personal servers: “We virtually have restarted VPS from backup. We are engaged on 6%. Mon/Tue. Then we are going to restart all stays (empty) VPS. It will take time since we have to add the HW in SBG3. Faster manner is, the cust begin a new VPS in GRA (however IP will change).”

Bare metal servers that have been in SBG have been shifted to SBG4, however the ones shifting into SBG3 are “a nightmare,” mentioned Klaba: “Next wk solely, first server will likely be UP. All servers are cleaned and examined, however it takes time to reassemble the racks .. an enormous Tetris.”

For bare metal servers which have been destroyed in SBG2 and SBG1, replacements are coming: “All destroyed servers will likely be (re)delivered. An e mail will likely be despatched: if the cust desires us to do one thing else, instance within the case he’s already ordered one other server and he simply desires emigrate IP / six months voucher to the new server.

For anybody not lined, or confused by the directions, Klaba asks: “Please contact us.”
