At OVHcloud, we are proud to provide our customers with a bare metal server, which we call a Dedicated Server. A Dedicated Server has numerous advantages over other offerings; such as a VPS (Virtual Private Server) or a public cloud environment. A Dedicated Server is a single-tenant environment, which ensures that you have 100% of the server's resources at your disposal all the time. In this article, we will cover how to order a Dedicated Server via the OVHcloud Manager.
Ordering a Dedicated Server
To begin, log into the OVHcloud Manager. Click Bare Metal Cloud at the top of the page. Then, click the Order drop-down in the left-hand column of the page. Next, select the Dedicated Servers option.
This will bring up the order funnel. From this page, select the server that best fits your needs.
After you choose the server, proceed through the order funnel. Shortly after you complete your order, you will receive an email notifying you that the server has been provisioned.
Congratulations on purchasing a Dedicated Server. For more information on interacting with a Dedicated Server via the OVHcloud Manager, please check out our Overview of Dedicated Servers article. Additionally, a Dedicated Server with a hypervisor (e.g., VMware ESXi) installed and Failover IPs attached can have VMs that are directly connected to the Internet. For more information on working with VMs, please check out our How to Connect a VM to the Internet Using VMware ESXi 6.5 article.
