I would imagine the HW RAID servers have been removed to make way for upcoming new ranges, I'd expect SoYouStart to be getting the older E5/E5 V2 processors which were in use for a few years at OVH.
I wonder what will happen with SYS hw raid servers left by clients.

Much higher prices on OVH compare with was on SYS.
