Hello,

As you know, OVH updates its line of dedicated servers 3 times a year. The idea is to offer you the latest technological innovations but also to adapt the hardware to the latest trends and uses.

This year we have a small delay on the implementation of the new range. That's because innovations are rare and overall there is nothing interesting happening. And when it happens it is very expensive ... Furthermore, because our dedicated servers sell very well and despite the increased capacity in datacentre RBX3 which we added in November, the datacentre RBX3 be at saturation very soon. Considering the delivery speed, we changed the server range, we won't be able to deliver the servers in "less than 1 hour".

The new range will have to wait until we finish the 5th datacentre: RBX4. It is intended for late April / early May. It's at this time of year when we will update the range and move on to "2011".

The range has been decided and it's been validated internally 4 weeks ago. The alphas are going well. The parts have been ordered. They are arriving and production will start running. Then all this will be pinging in our datacentres before major holidays. or a little earlier.

What's new?
We can not say anything prior to releasing the range. But we have some nice technological surprises that we've decided to integrate in this new future family to question the psychological prices that have been practised during years and therefore, increase a little on some servers. While maintaining the overall consistency you're used at OVH. Basically, expect dedicated servers that provide higher quality service than today and with a price slightly higher on some models.

Evolution and adaptation ...

Regards,
Octave
