You'll find the majority of companies won't publicly list information, simply because it can differ. Large companies such as OVH buy their Hard Drives and RAM in large batches, and therefore you're not guaranteed to get any specific brand. OVH primarily use Intel SSD Drives and HGST HDD drives, although I have Samsung SSDs in one of my servers.

If you want to nail specifications down to specific manufacturers with any provider - Build your own server, it's that simple.

Not so weird.... I've worked with some other dedicated servers providers, and not all of them provide full specs. Most of the ISPs which provide full specs use pre-assembled servers, like HP ProLiant or IBM System X. However, larger ISPs who assemble their own servers, as OVH does, often do not offer such details.

- The motherboard brand is SuperMicro on the three servers. The model is X10SRi-F for a EG-32 which was ordered less than one year ago; the SyS server has motherboard model X8STi.
- The HDDs are all HGST
- The RAM is identified as Samsung on the EG-32; on SyS, it does not identifies manufacturer.

I don't have any SSD, so I cannot check it; however, looking at this page, I bet they use Kingston or Intel SSD.

The hardware used for EG-32 may be almost the same as for the SP-32.
