What is OVH?

Hundreds of new servers are installed in our 12 datacenters everyday. For our clients, this guarantees bare-metal resources accessible in less than an hour, and the liberty to use it to rollout the software of their choice. The many functions available on our dedicated servers allow our clients to manage their infrastructure autonomously.

What is Rackspace OnMetal?

OnMetal servers are single-tenant, bare-metal servers provisioned via the same OpenStack API as our cloud. They can be spun up as quickly as VMs to offer the agility of multi-tenant environments with the performance of single-tenant hardware. OnMetal servers are our own design and are engineered in a highly opinionated way. We’ve made them 100 percent solid-state with external cooling, leading to increased mean time between failures (MTBF). They are also incredibly large, so you’ll need fewer of them.
