Even though you don't use ESXi, read carefully the guide above : http://help.ovh.com/vrackesxi

To get VM running on servers in the vrack to communicate with other VMs in another server through the vrack, you must configure the Virtual Network appropriately in the servers. In ESXi, the label must be configured. I'm not aware of how you would go along doing that in Proxmox/OpenVZ, and we don't have information for that right now.

Let us know if you're doing it , and if you find any troubles doing so. That would be very interesting.

Thanks fozl, I would prefer sticking with ProxMox/OpenVZ for my virtual machines, in the past, nearly each time I used a closed source component for my infrastructure, I ended up paying way more than expected on the long run. I have seen you have now a series of tutorials for the vrack/openvz configuration, so, this should not be a problem.

Correct, you need a minimum of 3 servers for the VRack infrastructure. Each server to be in the VRack must have the Professional Option activated on it.

Edited: in fact the minimum VRack offer is up to 3 servers, but you can have just 2 servers in the infrastructure.

For what you want to do Loic, you can use ESXi: http://help.ovh.com/vrackesxi

But if you want to use a different system, let us know and we'll look into whether it can be done.

I thought it took 3 servers or more to do the V-rack thing, but I am not 100% certain though

Hello,

as my previous post suggest, I am really interested by the vrack offer. For me, this is especially to have backend VMs running isolated from the public network and spare the need to setup some software level tunneling.

So, a simple question, is it possible to start with the vrack offer with 2 only servers?

Thanks,
