When you are spending $35,000.00 a year at OVH for servers while growing your company, it is a bit hard to come out of pocket a year in advance for all of those servers. Well that is without taking out a large loan which would most likely eat up the savings. Now if you have a 3 month, 6 month and then 12 month discount, I would bet people would start building up towards that 1 year in advance much sooner.

Hi,

We are working on 3 main ranges of servers: Hosting / Enterprise / Infrastructure.
In addition, we will offer specific setups for starting a new business, or reselling our best deals. That's just some examples.

The following information are for informative purpose and the final offers could differ.


ENTERPRISE

Among all our customers, some look for a versatile server to meet the needs of a business: hosting the company's website, email server, intranet, backup. They need a server to do everything but at the end it's one single client per server.

No web hosting, no infrastructure. One client per customer.

The "Enterprise" range is therefore a great server for providers and contractors who advise OVH to their end customers. The end customer orders the server directly from OVH and the contractor administers the server on behalf of the end customer. Thus, the customer has the hardware at the best price and receive the invoices directly from the contractor.

With the "certified partner" program, the contractor that works this way will also be paid, depending on the server's type and duration. We want to go into partnership with the contractor in order them to maintain the server of our end customer and to be rented for as long as possible.

We also want to join forces with the end customer and motivate them directly to keep the server for a long time by offering discounts up to 40% off depending on the duration. Therefore it's a win-win situation for the 3 parties.

It's also a server for white label, ie the provider orders the server and administers it for the end customer. Opposed to a contractor, with white label, our customer is the provider that re-invoice the entire service to the final customer and we have no contact with them.


Philosophy

We started with a clean sheet to design the servers that will be able to host one customer per server. Having a very good CPU and a lot of RAM, the lossless 1Gbps network to ensure high availability is the minimum. We include a number of IP Failover directly in the offer: IP Failover that we've been offering for a while and the number of IP FO depends on the server type.

Why include IP FO in the offer? It's a versatile server that can do everything. Some companies need SSL. This server is also able to support one company with all its employees who use the server remotely or from the office, so need VPN. Sending a Newsletter can be difficult if you don't have some IPs dedicated to this activity: therefore adaptability that a business needs.

Offer

The "Enterprise" range consists of 2 different CPU with high power in terms of core frequency and the number of cores.
The RAM is up to 128GB, with different disk versions. We'll offer 18 different types of server and again we will ask your opinion to make the choice. At the end we want to offer about 6 types of "Enterprise" servers starting at less than $130/month.




Next to come:
  • The new range of server code name: SYS will interest many sysadmin
  • The "Brokers" offers will interest those looking to resell our servers all over the world and have a range of really cheap servers with discounts based on volume.
  • The "Game" offers with a low-latency routing and advanced Anti -DDoS protections included.
