Private interconnection of ALL your infrastructures
anywhere in the world

What is a vRack?

The vRack or virtual rack allows multiple servers to be grouped together (regardless of number and physical location in our datacentre) and connects them to a virtual switch within the same private network. Your servers can communicate privately and securely between each other (within a dedicated VLAN).

You no longer need to worry about renting racks in a datacentre. You can get all the servers and switches you need delivered and installed, with guaranteed hardware maintenance.

Your servers communicate securely within your private network (VLAN). You can choose to make your servers solely accessible via your private network and/or via the public network. Your private network is physically managed by OVH, so no software applications or network configuration are required on your servers.

Connecting your server

The Cisco ASR 9000 devices serve as a bridge for the vRack. They are at the gateway to each datacentre and linked to each other in order to route the data without passing through the public network. The Nexus 6000s and Nexus 2000s act as network gateways to interconnect your different servers.

Inter-datacentre connections

With fibre optic interconnexions deployed and managed using DWDM devices, the OVH network offers a total capacity of 3 Tbps. The links between each datacentre are doubled so that they can easily change route if necessary and benefit from 100 Gbps coherent.

The network enables super-fast inter-datacentre links:

Roubaix => Beauharnois: 40 ms

Gravelines => Strasbourg: 9 ms

The OVH America network
500 Gbps capacity to the internet.

The OVH Europe network
2500 Gbps capacity to the internet

The OVH Asia network
