Learn about the Dedicated Server layout via the OVHcloud Control Panel.
OVHcloud Dedicated Servers offer our customers an environment with resources entirely dedicated to their use. These servers are ideal for hosting websites, email, and many other potential options.
Navigating to your Dedicated Server
From the OVHcloud Control Panel, select
Bare Metal Cloud from the top navigation bar. In the left-hand menu, select
Dedicated servers. Select the server you would like to view.
When you first select a Dedicated Server, the first tab to which you will be taken is the General information tab. Here you can view all kinds of information about your Dedicated Server's hardware, service status information, network, and more.
The General information box is where you will find the server's hostname and product type. Additionally, you will be able to install an OS and change the boot mode of your server. To learn more about what you can do from this box, please check out the following articles:

The Hardware box will give you your server's hardware information. We use an HGR-HCI-1 server in our example. Hardware will vary depending on your server and any upgrades you selected.
The Service status box is where you will find the status of your server, whether monitoring is enabled or disabled, which services are monitored, and helpful links to view the status of the OVHcloud network at large. The more options
... button to the right of Status allows you to reboot your server or cancel the service.

Now, let's take a look at the next tab.
If your server offers IPMI capabilities, you will see options to download a Java applet and/or HTML applet, which allows you to access your server via a remote KVM session. If IPMI is not offered with your dedicated server, this screen will be blank.
