sorry, it's been fixed. The monthly correct charge for 199.00 for Host S

Two different prices are listed for the "Hosts": 133.00€ and 199.00€ per month, per host. Which is it?

I must say, it looks good

To complete the email yesterday, here is the "functional" website

Tomorrow we will launch the "beta" version
privateCloud's (CCP), a high availability
consolidation solution to run Linux and Windows.

The idea of the offer is simple: Replace your
5, 10 or 35 dedicated servers with 4 or 10 hosts
where you turn on 5, 10 or 35 VMs.
Then depending on the needs of each VM
adjust resources to each VM in real time.

Because the VM do not need all the same
resources all the time, it is possible to
consolidate multiple VMs on some hosts.
So instead of taking a dedicated server
to develop a project, simply run
a VM and pay nothing more. 0 euro.

The infrastructure is private to each client.
This means that each host belongs to
1 client, and it has 100% of the resources of
each host. Each client has its own IP
a isolated private internal network that can be rendered
public or not. Infrastructure
can guarantee the bandwidth of each
physical link to each host the maximum
capacity of the network adapter, which is 1Gbps or
10Gbps. The total capacity is 40Gbps by
each client (100Gbps in the final version).
That is the overall infrastructure running
several Tbps ...

It is also high availability and fault tolerant
for all elements of each Cloud customer.
This means that all hosts have 2
power supplies connected to 2 different and independent
electrical networks. Each
host has two physical networks (1G or 10G) and thus it
is connected by default to 2 switches that are
attached to 2 large communication frames and
routed through two routers. The network is "lossless",
and thus can handle thousands of packets per
second of bandwidth to SAN and NAS storage.

For software, we chose the vSphere
VMWare that provides many options
and features not found elsewhere.
Management is done via the vSphere interface
that some of our customers already know. Of
many options and features have been
developed and added to the vSphere interface
directly by OVH. so it's OVH-vSphere.

Resources are available in your Cloud in
1 click and 1 to 2 minutes. You have 1 host
7 in which you run VM, you start
under a VM release 1 ovh in seconds.
1 hour later, 1 click to get a new
host and you're with 2 hosts. Automatically
VSphere switches the VM on two hosts to use
the resources of your entire cloud. Nothing
and 0 to failure. The data are stored
on SAN / NAS high availability. You
store data from your VM on your 8
HA SAN and using all I/O SAN?
Click, your 2nd SAN is there in your cloud.
Click and you switch the data from your 8th
VM 1 NAS to the second. Still no
break in service. This is one example ...

But it's nice eh?

Want to try?


We need about 50 beta testers.
We need 2 types of betas:

- If you do virtualization
under Proxmox and/or xen, you
interested! send email
Subject: beta-test-start
and give a short description of what
you do today, what apps? what and how many
servers? how many VMs? SAN/NAS?

- You're into virtualization
day under ESXi / vSphere, you
interested! send email
Subject: beta-testing expert
and give a short description of what
you do today, what apps, what and how many servers?
how many VMs? What kind of NAS or
SAN you use?

If you just want to see, wait
a few days. OVH will offer
free pCC tests in January. You'll have plenty of time to see
what it is and how it works. We have the
site totally give you emotional involvement and
also a lot of information. Here we seek
just to debug everything that has been developed.

Thank you in advance! and let the serious stuff

Oh yeah!
