ROUBAIX, France, April 1 /PRNewswire/ -- To coincide with the launch of Intel's latest generation processor, OVH is offering an HG 2009 Revolution server with an integrated Xeon Nehalem from the American giant.

As a preview, and on the same day as the release of the new processor, OVH is offering its clients the opportunity to discover the technological advances of the Nehalem through an exclusive half-price offer (quantities are limited).

OVH launches its new high-end server offering: the HG 2009 Revolution, based on the new Intel processor. Among its many advantages, it is more eco- friendly and yet more powerful (up to 16 simultaneous tasks), multi-cored and multi-threaded.

Since its creation in 1999, OVH has pioneered the energy efficiency of its datacentres and servers. Within this environmentally-friendly perspective, the Intel Xeon 5500 is today's best technological response to the increasing demand for performance and diverse functionalities, explains Octave Klaba, MD of OVH.

Customers are looking for server platforms that are able to meet the new needs of virtualization and cloud computing. But they are also concerned about the energy consumption that counts for the major part of the fixed monthly cost of a server. This new processor goes further than the previous generation of processors in terms of response to these dual performance needs.

On March 31, OVH customers can get a taste of this new performance capability and incontestable innovation with a preview offering of the stock that OVH was able to procure on the day of the release of the new Intel product.
