HG is OVHcloud's most powerful line of Dedicated Server. With a redundant PSU and a GPU available as an add-on, the HG line will power your most data-intensive needs. In this article, we will walk through some of the most common use cases for the HG family.
Big data can mean a lot of different things, but if you are running applications that require a lot of storage like large databases or you just need to process a large amount of data quickly, HG will supply you with the power you need. For a server optimized to process big data, please check out our sample configuration below.

AI & Machine Learning
Let's face it. Singularity or not, AI is the wave of the future. A well-programmed AI bot does a better job of predicting consumer behavior than any analyst ever could - and the technology is only getting better. If you are running a website selling a product, AI can suggest items to your customers based on their previous purchases and browsing habits. This gives you targeted upsell and cross-sell opportunities that would have been unimaginable just a decade ago.
Of course, AI can be used for a lot more than shopping recommendations. AI can be used for predictive text, real-time data, and even building robots. If you are using a server to leverage AI or machine learning technology for your business, check out our sample configuration for an HG server below.
|2x Xeon® Gold 6132 28c/56t - 2.6GHz||96GB DDR4||2x 960GB SSD SATA||NVIDIA® Tesla™ P100|
Sometimes your databases need to run too quickly to live in persistent storage. When milliseconds matter, you can allow your database to update directly in memory. Our HG servers offer up to 1.5 TB of RAM, allowing you to create robust IMDBs (In-Memory Databases). For an idea of how to configure the hardware on a server used for IMDBs, check out our sample configuration below.

There are many possible reasons you may need robust and powerful servers. This guide has only covered a couple of the most common. However, whatever your computing needs are, OVHcloud provides you the power through our HG family to get the job done.
