HG - for a high-performance and secure system 

Already accessible in French datacentres; will be available to datacentres in Germany, Poland and the UK within a few days

The HG product range was designed to meet the needs of scientific research, business-critical applications, distributed computing and ultra-fast transactions in large private or public sector organisations:

  • The HG product range is fully customisable and scalable to match the highest resiliency and security requirements. Preconfigurations for various use cases are available in order to make selection easier.
  • These servers can accommodate dual processors and handle intensive workloads with high performance and resilience, such as big data, artificial intelligence, deep learning and in-memory databases.

OVH HG servers chosen by YetiForce

YetiForce wanted to design a hyperscale cloud infrastructure to host business-critical applications, in order to offer a hosted version of its YetiForce CRM software. After looking to such conventional solutions as shared hosting, YetiForce eventually decided to build its own private cloud so it benefits from a powerful processor and fast-access storage – all required to run its 800 database tables - as well as optimum security for client data handled by its application.

Though many private cloud solutions are available on the market, YetiForce chose to create its own custom solution, using OVH HG servers. “As we were looking for the perfect-fit solution, we evaluated offerings from AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google… and selected OVH because OVH provided the best price-performance ratio. Moreover, leveraging high-end components ensures that we get the best quality”, explained Błażej Pabiszczak, CEO of YetiForce.
