Discover the Software-Defined Datacentre (SDDC)

The Software-Defined Datacentre is a premium version of Dedicated Cloud. It provides access to a 100% Dedicated Cloud infrastructure with "Software-Defined" technologies in order to enhance the performance and security of your infrastructure, but also to facilitate infrastructure management and increase productivity.

The no compromise, high-performance solution

Your infrastructure is comprised of INTEL VSAN Hosts (Software-Defined Storage) and/or Intel Hosts along with NFS datastores of one of these 2 types: SSD-Accelerated or Full SSD. The virtualisation of your infrastructure is fully managed by OVH with the vCenter + vSphere solution developed by VMware.
The management of your network policy is done through the NSX Software-Defined Network. You will be able to deploy a firewall, load balancer, SpoofGuard, VPN and DHCP in a few clicks, directly from your vSphere interface.

Order and receive your pack automatically

We are offering you preconfigured or "à la carte" packs to start your infrastructure. Your infrastructure will be delivered with:

  • 2 x INTEL Host (minimum) or 2 INTEL VSAN Hosts (VSAN soon available)
  • 2 x 300 GB datastores (minimum)
  • Access to the vSphere hypervisor, configured in high availability with all options available thanks to the Enterprise Plus licence included.
  • Access to the NSX plugin from the vSphere interface


The pack is delivered in around 30 minutes to the OVH datacentre of your choice, either in France or in Canada. You'll be informed by email when your pack becomes available and that's when you'll receive your username and password to connect to the vSphere interface. Log in to the vSphere hypervisor to deploy all your VMs, as needed.

We preconfigure up to 2,000 VxLANs so that you can deploy your private networks and build N-Tiers infrastructures with your VMs.

NSX - VMware's Software-Defined Network

NSX, is a solution native to vSphere with the capacity to easily deploy your security policy and access a library of services such as a firewall, VPN, load balancer, NAT or DHCP. NSX is included with certain preconfigured packs and is optional with "à la carte" packs. All Software-Defined Datacentre product offers are equipped with NSX by default.

VSAN: the extreme performance of Software-Defined Storage

vSAN hosts can be used to complete your infrastructure, or across its entirety. These Hosts integrate CPU and RAM resources but most of all the storage section, which is mounted locally. The storage is strictly comprised of SSD disks in RAID configuration. This is why we talk about VSAN All Flash, with practically no disk access latency thanks to local SSDs.

Scale your Software-Defined Datacentre

Add/delete additional resources whenever you want!
INTEL Hosts, INTEL VSAN Hosts (available soon) and datastores can be ordered directly from your customer control panel or the vSphere interface, with monthly or hourly billing. This way, you can add new resources that will be delivered automatically in 5 minutes; ideal if you need to deal with a peak load!
