To get the good feelings by reading the following news we suggest you to listen to "Can't Stop" by Red Hot Chili Peppers on loop for 5 minutes. at least.

Ready? ... So here we go ...

Hello,

Following the contract changes with VMware on VM licenses, we have simplified the PCC billing and divided billing of the majority of
pCC Customers by -50%!

How do you divide the bill to -50%?
-------------------------------------------------
Now we don't bill VMware licenses at the end of the month any more at the started VM! You will only pay for the hosts and the NAS. You have of course a license and paid by OVH but it is calculated differently. The license is included in the price of pCC whatever the number of VMs running on your pCC. We simplify.

We also simplify the license types, from 4 to 2. The "standard + DRS" is available on the S & M hosts. The "entreprise plus" is available on L,L+, L++, XL, XL+.

Limitation: you do not have the other licenses and you are unable to have "entreprise plus" on the S and M hosts.

If you are taking today a dedicated server to make ESXi you should consider the pCC. Why? Because now you have "Standard + RDS" by default whereas with a dedicated server you have the license "for FREE". This is a beautiful gift for the pCC in terms of functionality for the same price! You now have the features like HA, VMotion, DRS and the vSphere centralized to manage multiple hosts with a single interface. If you have more than 20 VMs on the three hosts the free license and a vCenter per server it's quickly... heavy. Same for the API.

You can also have 1 single host in a datacentre regardless of the license.

The prices of the S, M hosts and the M and L packs were unchanged. Prices for L+, L++, XL, XL+ hosts and XL pack have changed.

As previously announced, we have removed the special offer on the installation costs. So here we go: The pCC is now available as "hyper stable".

The ability to create Windows templates has also been added; by checking it, the templates of VM Windows will appear in the vSphere. The Windows license billing takes place at end of month, with the use, depending on the size of the hosts on which the Windows VM run
- 75 euros for the S & M hosts
- 150 euros for the L hosts
- 300 euros for the XL hosts

For current customers, the new contract must be validated by logging into the Manager v5: https://www.ovh.com/managerv5/

Permanent hosts and storage resources are already billed (invoice of June 1). On 1st July, the bill includes the price of hosts (new price) and resources at the time added.

Ongoing:
- vShield zone that isolates the VMs between itself and prevent spoofs of your network
- vShield Edge which allows to create private vlan in your pCC and isolating the VM groups between them
- vCloud that allows you to connect two vSphere together and to make 3 essential things:
- Move a VM to your vSphere from your existing infrastrucure to the PCC in OVH
- Resume a VM from pCC to your vSphere of your existing infrastructure
- To pair your pCC with (future) pCI and make Cloud Computing Hybrid
But also the same thing with a VM and a vApp that group VMs. More generally you will be able to develop on the pCI for cheap, bring your VM / vAPP of pCI on your pCC for the production or your existing infrastructure (if you want to host everything in your existing infrastructure on the VMware) or deploy a VM / vApp from your pCC / on your PCI that will be geolocalised anywhere in the world.

Anyway, we are moving forward... Can't stop :-)

Regards,

Octave
