Tailored services

Increase your infrastructure’s availability with additional IP address options. You can subscribe to these options in just a few clicks, and assign them to the server of your choice.


IPv4 and IPv6 addresses

Each server has a public IPv4 address and an IPv6 address range (/128).

Anti-DDoS protection

To guarantee maximum security, an anti-DDoS protection system is included with your dedicated server.

Additional backup space (optional)

Each dedicated server has an external backup space, which you can use to store your data and configuration files. This space can be expanded to store larger volumes.

99.90% SLA (Service Level Agreement)

So you Start servers are covered by a 99.90% SLA for your business applications.

IPMI and KVM over IP (optional)

The IPMI (Intelligent Platform Management Interface) console can be accessed via the OVHcloud Control Panel or API and provides you with a direct connection to your dedicated server. If your server becomes unavailable, you can keep control of it via its public IP address.

Operating systems and distributions available to pre-install

You can install several operating systems and distributions (OS) automatically via the OVHcloud Control Panel.

250Mbit/s public bandwidth and unlimited traffic

Your So you Start dedicated server has a bandwidth of 250Mbit/s by default. Ingress and egress traffic is unlimited and free (with the exception of our data centers located in the Asia-Pacific region).

100GB storage space

Each dedicated server has an included 100GB storage space, independent from the server, to store your data.

Technical support

By renting a So you Start server, you get technical support by ticket and telephone. We also offer guides and an online Help Centre to assist you in setting up and managing your services.

Additional IP (en option)

Additional IPs (IPv4) can be transferred between OVHcloud servers (as a failover feature). It is useful to keep them for purposes such as:

  • acting as a failover for traffic in the event of a service failure
  • switching projects from development to production environments

These IP addresses can also be geolocated in 14 countries.
