We include public bandwidth with each dedicated server, as well as additional guaranteed bandwidth options and unlimited, unmetered traffic. Your dedicated server has a minimum public bandwidth of Mbps, with a burst available to absorb the occasional peak traffic. You can also increase your bandwidth capacity, and make it guaranteed for specific upload requirements or mass distribution like software updates, VOD video on demand and live streaming. With available connections across the globe, our network enables you to optimise your infrastructure for distribution worldwide. Our bandwidth is unlimited and unmetered. This ensures you maintain constant throughput for ingress and egress traffic.
Bandwidth options available on Generation 7
Why Get Dedicated Bandwidth?
A promise is a promise, so several weeks ago we fulfilled it: your servers now have twice the bandwidth, for the same price! We knew from the start that this upgrade would be feasible, as our 20Tbps network core can definitely cope with the extra load! We work daily to make sure you enjoy using our network, which is one of the largest in the world among hosting providers. Indeed, our network is constantly evolving, and our teams work tirelessly to optimise the capacity planning and anticipate the load generated by all our customers, spread across our 28 datacentres. As a reminder, we suffered one of the biggest attacks on record a few years ago , which generated traffic of more than 1Tbps, but was nonetheless absorbed by our infrastructure, without any impact on our customers. To guarantee this additional public bandwidth, our Network and Bare Metal teams have worked closely together to be more and more LEAN when it comes to our infrastructures. As a result, thousands of active devices routers, switches, servers etc. The overall deployment process has taken some time, as we have done a rolling upgrade, taking a QoS and isolation approach to prevent possible traffic spikes. Product range by product range, datacentre by datacentre… The deployment itself was quick and painless, as it was fully automated. The potential bottleneck was making sure that everything worked as intended, which involved carefully monitoring our full server farm, as bandwidth doubling can have a huge impact, especially at OVH, where let me mention it once again!
Are you ready to try them?
Get additional, high-performance connectivity up to 25Gbps with unlimited traffic. The additional bandwidth option is only available on Generation 7 servers. Other server models have public bandwidth by default and are not customizable. The additional bandwidth option is only available on generation 7 servers references containing the number 7. This generation of servers are the first to benefit from this option. While placing your order, you can choose to add the additional bandwidth option to your Dedibox server. It will be active as soon as your server is delivered. You can also add the additional bandwidth after ordering your server from the console. Scaleway Dedibox currently only offers monthly billing.
Dedicated bandwidth is bandwidth that's reserved solely for the use of one subscriber, usually a business. The ring-fencing of the bandwidth ensures that the business always gets the same high data throughput, regardless of what other subscribers may do with their connections. Unlike broadband connections, there's no drop in data throughput at peak times.
