maybe you must do some extra work on the windows image (can't connect) - nvm took sometime

and create the option to use a password instead of a SSH key!

Oles must really hate the kittens. Why else would he spam his forums here with the exact same message? Once is fine, in news, where it belongs. (read your own forum rules on spam Oles)

>stepping over a pile of kittens< By the way, it's 5GB for the mC series, not 10GB.

Hello
In the series of service under the code name "Cloud Computing"
OVH offers:
- A miniCloud (mC) http://www.ovh.com/fr/cloud/
which is a virtual machine with 128MB of RAM to 2GB
the 8GHz CPU and disk 10GB, commitment "on time"
distribution with distribution naked (Debian, Ubuntu ...)
or ready to use (Java, RoR ...). The service is stable
and used by a few thousand customers
- DevCloud (dC) http://www.ovh.com/fr/cloud/devcloud.xml
which is a service ready for use, requiring no
knowledge administration. you have an interface
manager v5 "powerful" that lets you do everything in a few
seconds and easily.
- MySQL (beta)
- Urchin (beta)
- VPN / PPTP (beta)

The family grows and dC mC
- MC
- Windows (Alpha)
- DC
- WEB LoadBalancer (alpha)
- OpenLdap (alpha)
-> And next week:
- Storage (alpha)
- Exchange (alpha
- Java (alpha)
- Php (alpha)
- Memcache (alpha)
- Syslog (alpha)

The mC is a virtual machine with 128MB of RAM to
2GB of RAM maximum. The cC (coreCloud) arrives in two weeks
approx. With cC you 2GB of RAM or more and the
possibility of activity "high availability" on your cC.
It is the technology "VMotion" VMware allows
move a virtual machine with its hard hot
infrastructure to another without downtime.
More:
http://www.vmware.com/fr/products/vi/vc/vmotion.html

Indeed, the Cloud Computing is designed to create and manage
services "high availability" affordable in terms of
Prices in terms of technical knowledge.

You have two ways to create the "high availability"
- Either to build a cluster of several mC / cC
and do loadbalancing
- Or use the "VMotion" on a mC / cC

Then adjust the power to warm without cuts in:
- Increasing or decreasing the number of mC / cC in
Cluster
- Either by increasing or decreasing the power of mC / cC

Finally, the pCC arrives in about 2 weeks too.
In one click you will be able to order
- A vrack with your own IP
- 1-8 servers preconfigured with your vrack
- Preinstalled in ESXi
- With a management interface in vSphere
More:
http://www.vmware.com/fr/products/vsphere/
- Then create the VMs from the free or vSphere
VMware licenses qu'Ovh can provide

Work is also storage under the Fibre Channel (FC)
but especially in the FCoE InfiniBand. The idea is to
stop using the Ethernet but the InfiniBand (IB)
then do IPoIB. Why? For question
performance, availability, functionality and
price. These technologies, coupled with Leclerc will be
used for storage for the cloud.

- A miniCloud (mC) http://www.kimsufi.co.uk/cloud/ is a virtual machine with 128MB - 2GB of RAM, 8GHz CPU and 10GB disk, "on time" promise, available with raw distribution (Debian, Ubuntu ...) or ready to use (Java, RoR ...). It's a stable service and used by a thousands of customers.

We have also been working on storage under Fibre Channel (FC) but especially in the FCoE InfiniBand. The idea is to stop using the Ethernet and start using the InfiniBand (IB) then do the IPoIB. Why? This will answer the question of performance, availability, functionality and price. These technologies, coupled with Leclerc will be used as cloud storage.
