Your datacentre

Your dedicated hosted infrastructure

With Dedicated Cloud vCloud, you take a step further into the world of cloud and abstraction of physical resources. You get your own dedicated infrastructure, a vCenter (VMware virtualisation solution) and a dedicated vCloud Director (a client enabling you to manage your virtual machines). Even the network is dedicated to you!

Free yourself from the hassle of managing, updating and maintaining resources - vCloud takes care of everything for you.

CPU and RAM will be permanently allocated to your infrastructure and you can modify the quantities as required.

An all-inclusive pack

OVH provides starter packs, each including:

  • VMware vCloud licences
  • Two servers (hosts)
  • Two disk arrays (datastores)
  • 100% SLA guarantee
  • Private network

Everything is included in these packs so that you can start using your Dedicated Cloud and creating your virtual machines within minutes.

vCloud details

We guarantee that your Dedicated Cloud vCloud will be hosted on a VMware-compliant platform. The Dedicated Cloud platform powered by VMware is also vCloud Datacenter certified, the highest level of certification provided for Service Providers.
OVH also allows you to access all the features of VMware vCloud using the Enterprise + licence.

Features managed directly by vCloud

VMware High Availability

High Availability (HA) offers protection against hardware failure and operating system malfunction. The service monitors your virtual machines at all times. If one goes down, VMware HA will automatically restart it on another Dedicated Cloud server. Your VM will be available again within minutes, without any human intervention.

VMware DRS

Distributed Resource Scheduler (DRS) optimises your Dedicated Cloud infrastructure, without any intervention on your part. Whatever activity peaks you may have, this feature will spread the load of your VMs across different servers automatically. So you can easily deploy your machines while keeping costs down.

VMware vShield Edge*

The vShield Edge feature enables you to isolate your virtual machines (VMs) in "porthyperFeatureGroups". All VMs can communicate within the group, but they cannot communicate with the rest of the network.

VMware vNetwork Distributed Switch*

Centralise the provisioning, administration and monitoring of your virtual machines, with the help of a "rehyperFeatureGroupement" network per cluster. The vNetwork Distributed Switch facilitates the quality of service (QoS) on the different VMware network features by allocating them maximum bandwidth.

VMware Hot Add

Usage won't put a strain on your projects any more thanks to the Hot Add feature enabling you to increase the processor and memory resources allocated to your VMs. The operation is carried out instantly, without any service disruption. It's really simple - all you have to do is move the cursor!

User features

VMware Thin Provisioning

Thin Provisioning decreases your storage requirements through dynamic allocation of disk space. Your VMs will have the right amount of disk space without their performance being affected. Your investment and operating costs will also be reduced due to the money you save on storage.

Creating VMs from the marketplace or OVF

Compress and share your VMs using the VMware Marketplace exchange platform. Find hundreds of preconfigured VMs ready to be deployed. What's more, .ovf files can be executed immediately for easy deployment.
