Not everyone runs seedboxes RapidSpeeds, I have customers who have servers who do not even push a TB a month. I also think he means peaking at 300Gbps so it has the capacity to go higher.

umm .. legit web hosting servers?... try it sometimes .. its great.

Half of them are probably seedboxes.

Meaning a large portion (very very large) is all internal

interesting... very interesting.

Love the new router in New York! That should help with traffic.. is it 1 or 10Gbps?

Also, i'm curious - How can 72,000 servers only be using 300Gbps?

Hello,
What's news in OVH?

Bulk:

ADSL / SDSL
- Berries with DSLAMs were installed in the 19 NRA
Lille, 15 have been validated in terms of electricity and
8 NRA "ping" ent. Everything should work for the end of
months. We started the "alpha" testing to validate tests
lab with ADSL and SDSL and all solutions failover.

- In parallel, it interconnects ends with SFR and
Orange to offer you on a solution "failover"
National.

- The idea is to offer a connection compatible xDSL
with the telephony company that is available
100% of the time. And then connect through a minimum of 2 DSLAMs
in parallel (using 2 operators and through our two DSLAMs and aggregation
highest level of network with different protocols).
It's very technical but the client must remain while
simple to use, with GTR and above all affordable. Everything
that exists in this market is not affordable. We therefore hope
create real solutions for those who fiddle
today with 2, 3 or + BOX, routers etc..

FIELD
- We set the strategy for the retailer "webagency"
and the "Resellers". In about 10 days should be
put into production these 2 services.

Shared Hosting
- We started the move to shared accommodation
new solutions for load balancing. The purpose
is to introduce redundancy, to protect themselves better
against attacks but also switch to "unlimited traffic"

- In parallel, OVH propose the option of hosting CDN
shared in order to bring the infrastructure
visitor with points of presence such as Madrid, Milan,
Warsaw and New York.

- Within 10 days OVH should offer the option on IPv6
mutu. You'll also be able to choose your
IPv6 and the IPv6 reverse, while remaining mutu.
Basically, you'll have a dedicated IPv6 in mutu ...

PRIVATE SERVER
- Offers VPS static and dynamic arrive in 2-3
weeks. The goal is to offer solutions for
replace your PR (for those who wish). With these
2 offers (that we already offer on technologically
Cloud Computing at the mC) OVH risk of hitting
strong in terms of content of the offer and of course the price.

DEDICATED SERVER
- The shipments of servers based on AMD will start under
few days. The servers respond perfectly to
issues related to Cloud Computing. It is therefore
probable that they moved only in the "privateCloud.
At our level, they are used for the "coreCloud.

- Filling RBX3 advance at a good pace and saw the
RBX4 scheduled to start, you should not miss
room for new shipments of servers
November or December. But it will be very close ...

- The provision of NAS Filer and will be proposed
About 10 days. 100GB NAS Filer and to 9.99Euro
1TB 49 HT / month

CLOUD
- Offer coreCloud should start within 2 weeks
about. We are changing all
network components for the Cloud Computing and change
how to route services. Instead of pooling
routers in the datacenter, we will dedicate
service by service, and better manage the quality of
each service. For example, all will coreCloud
"Firewall" to prevent attacks snack service.

- The offer will be directed privateCloud vSphere and follow the
recommendation at VMWare hosts, and storage
course network. This means that each hosts (server)
is connected via multiple network cards connected via
several independent networks. The goal? OVH wants
contract offer 100% availability ... (!).
The offer is expected to start in three weeks too.

- OVH propose offers of "storage" for coreCloud
and privateCloud.

- The system tests load distribution of A10 AX
are inconclusive. We implement the solution
Cloud Computing for a production start in
2 weeks.

PHONE
- We prepare the salon IP Convergence. The idea is to
this room "otherwise". This means that no person OVH
will be present at the show ... We will do "something else".

- We set the strategy "dealer" and "integrator"
which will start in early November with a www.ovh.biz
complete catalog of telephones ... The 1st
feedbacks of our customers are encouraging.

- We started in the UK and DE EcoFax based on our
own interconnection with British Telecom and Deutsche
Telecom. The phone offers will start soon.

- We have many problems to interconnect with
Telefonica in Spain. After almost 2 years of "no"-discuss
with Telefonica, we brought the matter to the nearly
agency's public telecommunications area, the CMT
(Equivalent to ARCEP in France) who voted ago
3 days. Telefonica has the obligation to sign the contract
interconnection with OVH and interconnect within 5 days.
Telefonica is otherwise subject to a fine day 10'000E
late. It is thought that finally things are going to release and
we terminate the BNC cable interconnects we
passed to bays of Telefonica in Madrid there are more than 1 year.

- We have the same problems with TPSA in Poland ... by
against the agency's public telecommunication is not
More ... unusually dynamic ...

- Work is progressing well with Belgacom.

DataCentre
- The RBX-4 is progressing well and should be finished for the month of
December. Some pictures:
http://demo.ovh.net/fr/ce2a22d0d3440...ef7fc2716acad/

- Work on the data center will start in Strasbourg
within 2 months. Finally, we could not get
Low voltage on site (400V) and we need to
up its own high voltage (20000V). And so we
left in the heavy work. So we decided to
build on the same type of data center that RBX-4.
The network will work be completed within two months. Our
network passes 200m datacentre of the future and must be
some GC in Port of Strasbourg.

NETWORK
- We're over 300Gbps of bandwidth used
over 700Gbps available.

- Our router in New York should "ping" er today.
This is the start of our backbone in the U.S., Asia
(And maybe South America) ...

- Continued work on the VSS and the establishment of
BGP route reflectors on, we found the
stability in the network during construction. It
to say that in case of power on a few links
share in Europe, routing converges in 1 to 2 seconds
to find the road.

- The Nexus 7016 has never worked for us. It is a real
disaster. We put a lot of hope in this chassis
but today it is not stable enough for us and
it lacks basic functionality to the Cloud
Computing. We will start testing the first router
ASR 9010 we have already RBX1.

- Based on these tests, we will be doubling
number of routers currently in place in London,
Amsterdam and Frankfurt or replace existing routers
by the ASR 9010. The goal is to increase the number of
10G port on the 3 POPs.

- Once we have new ports 10G Ldn
Ams and Fra, we will double the transmission capacity
between Roubaix and the world (except in Paris where we
have enough capacity).

In short, this advance may not be fast enough but there
great job ...

Octave

Hello,
What's happening in OVH?

VRACK:

ADSL / SDSL
- Racks with DSLAMs were installed in the 19 NRA in Lille, 15 have been validated in terms of electricity and 8 NRA "pinging" . Everything should work for the end of the month. We started the "alpha" testing to validate lab tests with ADSL and SDSL and all failover solutions.

- Within 10 days OVH should be able to offer the IPv6 option on shared hosting. You'll also be able to choose your IPv6 and the reverse IPv6 , while remaining on shared hosting. Basically, you'll have a dedicated IPv6 on hosting ...

PRIVATE SERVER
- The static and dynamic VPS offers are arriving in 2-3 weeks. The goal is to offer you solutions to replace your RPS (for those who want to). With these 2 offers (this technology is already offered with Cloud Computing at the mC level) OVH are taking a chance in terms of the offer content and of course the price.

DEDICATED SERVER
- Delivery AMD based servers will start in a few days. The servers respond perfectly to issues related to Cloud Computing. It is therefore probable that will only offer them in the "privateCloud". At our level, we use them for the "coreCloud".

-The stocking of RBX3 is progressing well and RBX4 scheduled to start. So, we should have a place for all our shipments of new servers for November and December. But it will be very close ...

- The NAS storage and Filer offer will be up and running in about 10 days. 100GB NAS at 9.99 to 1TB @ 49 per month.

CLOUD
- The coreCloud offer should start within 2 weeks. We are changing all network components for Cloud Computing and changing how to route services. Instead of pooling routers in the datacentre, we will dedicate them service by service, and then manage the quality of each service better. For example, all coreCloud will be"Fire-walled" to prevent attacks.

- The privateCloud offer will be vSphere orientated and follow the VMWare recommendation regarding hosts, storage and of course network. This means that each host (server) is connected via multiple network cards connected via several independent networks. The goal? OVH wants to contractually offer 100% availability ... (!). The offer is expected to start in three weeks also.

- OVH propose "storage" offers for coreCloud and privateCloud.

- The system tests of AX A10 load distributions are concluded. We're implementing the Cloud Computing solution and are starting production in 2 weeks.

TELEPHONE
- We are preparing for the IP Convergence show. The idea is to make this show "alternative". This means that no OVH person will be present at the show ... We will do "something else".

- We have set the "reseller" and "agent" strategy which will start in early November with a www.ovh.biz complete catalogue of telephones ... The inital customer feedback is encouraging.

- We started EcoFax in the UK and DE based on our own interconnection with British Telecom and Deutsche Telecom. The phone offers will start soon.

- We have many interconnection problems with Telefonica in Spain. After almost 2 years of "non"-discusstion with Telefonica, we brought the matter to the public telecommunications agency in Spain, the CMT (Equivalent to Ofcom in UK) who voted 3 days ago. Telefonica is obliged to sign the interconnection contract with OVH and interconnect within 5 days. Otherwise, Telefonica is subject to a fine of €10'000 per delayed day. It is thought that finally things are going ahead and we will finish the BNC interconnection cables which pass through Telefonica's racks in Madrid that have been there for more than 1 year.

- We have the same problems with TPSA in Poland ... however the public telecommunication agency is no More ... its changing to somewhere else ...

- Work is progressing well with Belgacom.

DataCentre
- RBX-4 is progressing well and should be finished for the month of December. Some pictures:
http://demo.ovh.net/fr/ce2a22d0d3440...ef7fc2716acad/

- Work on the datacentre will start in Strasbourg within 2 months. Finally, we couldn't get Low voltage in place (400V) so we needed to up it to high voltage (20 000V). So all the hard work is done. So we decided to build the same type of datacentre as RBX-4. Work on the network will be completed within two months. Our network passes through 200m of the future datacentre and we must do a bit of GC in the Strasbourg port.

NETWORK
- We have used over 300Gbps of bandwidth out of the 700Gbps available.

- Our router in New York should "ping" today. This is the start of our backbone in the U.S., Asia (And maybe South America) ...

- After working on the VSS and implementing the BGP on the reflector routes, we found the network to be stable during construction. i.e.: in case a link is cut somewhere in Europe, it will take 1 to 2 seconds to find another route.

- The Cisco Nexus 7016 has never worked for us. It is a real disaster. We put a lot of hope in this chassis but today it is not stable enough for us and it lacks basic functionality for Cloud Computing. We will start testing the first ASR 9010 router that is already in RBX1.
