Rackspace OnMetal vs OVH: What are the differences?

Developers describe Rackspace OnMetal as "Single-tenant, Baremetal Cloud Servers from Rackspace". 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. On the other hand, OVH is detailed as "Dedicated infrastructure for your business". 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.

Rackspace OnMetal and OVH can be categorized as "Dedicated Cloud Hosting" tools.

Some of the features offered by Rackspace OnMetal are:

  • Provision instantly, instead of in hours or days.
  • Manage as easily as virtual cloud servers through our Cloud Control Panel and the OpenStack API.
  • Integrate with your existing cloud architecture.

On the other hand, OVH provides the following key features:

  • Delivery of servers in less than an hour 24/7/365
  • Full user control
  • Guaranteed bandwidth

Accenture, Webedia, and Flat are some of the popular companies that use OVH, whereas Rackspace OnMetal is used by The Control Group, Yodlr, and Vanare. OVH has a broader approval, being mentioned in 66 company stacks & 24 developers stacks; compared to Rackspace OnMetal, which is listed in 5 company stacks and 3 developer stacks.

          We use OVH to host the majority of our servers spread across the globe. This allows us to have a single point of contact for our main hosting when issues arise as well as giving us the ability to quickly failover servers when needed. OVH also helps us by keeping the price we pay for servers down therefore keeping the fees on our products themselves down.

          The majority of our dedicated servers are hosted with OVH, due to their competitive pricing, easy to use control panels and quick on-site support options.
