OVHcloud Upgrades its Bare Metal High Grade Servers with Intel Xeon Gold Processors

These servers attempt “to solve the challenges of hyper-converged infrastructures and the challenges of growing storage needs”.

OVHcloud is introducing new dedicated Bare Metal High-Grade servers to the market, equipped with fifth-generation Intel Xeon Gold processors.

At the heart of these HCI, SDS and STOR ranges is the Intel Emerald Rapids microarchitecture. The servers are designed to support mission-critical and intensive workloads.

“We are excited to refresh our most advanced solutions by offering the latest x86 CPUs in configurations that meet the many needs of our customers,” said Yaniv Fdida, Chief Product Technology Officer at OVHcloud, “from solving the challenges of hyper-converged infrastructures to the challenges of growing storage needs”.

The HGR-HCI range is aimed at hyper-converged infrastructures and features dual-processor configuration. It starts from Intel Xeon Gold 5515+ in a 2×8-core configuration for the HGR-HCI-i1 reference and goes up to Intel Xeon Gold 6554S and 2×36 cores for HGR-HCI-i4.

The HGR-SDS range for software-defined storage includes the HGR-SDS-1 server with a pair of Intel Xeon Gold 5515+ processors in a 2×8-core configuration and the HGR-SDS-2 with Intel Xeon Gold 6542Y in a 2×24-core configuration.

In the HGR-STOR range, which addresses use cases such as archiving, disaster recovery and databases, HGR-STOR-1 uses Intel Xeon Gold 6554S in a single processor configuration.
