Can you guys please confirm which DC(s) these will be available in - and a rough idea of availability.

Thanks

Also, can the server be configured as RAID0 / 8TB in the manager before installing the OS (Debian)?
you can check some tests done by other customers here:

And regarding the installation: the system/root partition will have to be RAID1, but as little as 20GB. Afterthat, you can configure the RAID0 for the rest through the reinstallation wizard in the manager.

I can confirm that the FS servers use GRA as datacenter.

However note that if you want Windows you will lose 2TB from boot drive because OVH only use MBR so if you really need whole space you will need to use Linux.

I believe that this will be in the Western Europe Datacenter (GRA)
