Correction: with +4 GB vRAM relative to the
guaranteed RAM. So if you take a VPS Cloud with 2 GB RAM,
the VM will see 6 GB of vRAM VM.

Hello,

happy New Year 2013

Emails are rare but it is only
a matter of time for, again, this channel of communication
to resume its normal life ...

Today we are pleased to announce
the implementation of VPS 2013 GAMMA. It is
the commercial and technical update of
vKS, Geo vKS and VPS that we've offered for
2 years.


Why version 2013?
--------------------------

Offers vKS and VPS have sold more than
15,000 units. It may seem a lot but
we're not very happy with this volume. We expect
100,000 VMs per year with the VPS 2013. To do this,
we've technical reviewed the offers and improved
commercially the prices and the services. Also,
from the tests with Geo vKS, we saw the marketing
limits for the geolocated offers in 9 locations
in the world. "Why would I take a VPS in
Dallas, TX?". A good question for a lot of
customers.

3 offers for VPS 2013
-----------------
We wanted to review the whole VPS offers
and better address customers
looking for VPS, that is, for web activity.

So we setup 3 VPS offers:

- VPS Classic which are cheaper,
from 4,99 €/month with 512 MB vRAM,
upgradeable up to 16 GB vRAM

- VPS Low Latency are geolocated around
the world, from 9,99 €/month

- VPS Cloud which is a high-end offer
with 24 GB of vRAM and between 512 MB and 16 GB
of guaranteed RAM, the rest being on SSD disks.
Always from 9,99 €/month

To know more about VPS 2013:
http://www.ovh.com/fr/vps/

It covers all WEB markets:
- WEB development
- Databases
- Content management
- E-commerce
- Messaging
- Mobile
- Geolocation

with the ready-to-use distributions for
WEB applications: CPanel and Plesk.

The VPS must therefore be seen as a natural
evolution of webhosting customers (not a replacement
dedicated server). IO, maximum bandwidth
etc... were not selected as the
main criterion in the implementation of
VPS 2013. Ease of use, warranties,
backups, evolution, the overall performance,
distributions and the number of IPv4/IPv6
are the basis of the offer.

Exclusive: on the VPS Cloud, we offer
Windows and Linux at the same price.

Why GAMMA?
----------------

The offer works perfectly well in technical
terms. We always use pCC to deliver
the VPS and we added recent innovations
such as Nexus 1000v. Therefore,
we know the music, after 2 years, so it rolls
well technically.

On the other hand, we're starting a new upgrade
in terms of API and Manager to switch to v6.

And we need feedback on the manner of
explain what we want to offer you,
then adapt our development in the right
direction. We do not want to lie and say that
it's all done, but just warn that, regarding
the management, we still have
3-4 weeks to complete all developments
and upgrading work to put the offer in "stable".

What's new in API v6:
- Switch to RESTful
- No user/password to login
- With the user/password, it creates a token
for the application (similar to oAuth)
- Possibility to use API on a third party site
without giving user/password
- Rejection of right to an application from a
third party site
- Possibility of reselling "managed" VPS
to end customers and develop the
tools for managing VPS: you develop
a nice interface, clients have an OVH VPS,
want your interface and you will be able to
offer it via a token to a VPS client.

To follow the evolution of the API v6, subscribe
on the mailing list api@ml.ovh.net
via api-subscribe@ml.ovh.net

To know more about l'API v6:

https://api.ovh.com

This movement is very important and requires
that we adapt the documentation to your
questions. As VPS 2013 is the first to switch to
v6, this will find the bugs on v6 and therefore
it won't be in GAMMA for nothing, but to
allow everything to switch to v6 together.

The Manager v6 version is also in dev
and is already based on the v6 API. The purpose
of the v6 is to create 4 universe, and VPS belongs
to the WEB universe. That is the manager adapted to
Webmastering activity. The idea is to
help you in the daily handling, as quickly and simply
as possible, of the domain names, IPv4/IPv6, emails and
hosting spaces as shared hosting and VPS.
We are thinking to provide the manager v6 WEB in
3 to 4 weeks, with 5 webmasters profiles... Yes, we
have the ambition and work to do. This is how we define the
lines of how it will be and propose things that don't
exist at the moment. Taking the risk of being wrong
then again ..

Octave
