    For those of you with OVH Rise/Advance servers with NVMe SSDs, would you be able to post what model NVMe's your server came with? OVH support has been unable to provide really specific information here.

    All they could say was the disks are "80% Samsung, 20% WD." But I noticed the entry level 450GB drives on the Rise 1 servers are classified as "Datacenter" while the 500GB NVMe's on the Advance 2 lineup are "Enterprise."

    So if you guys can post your specs, that should help us narrow down which options pertain to which drives.

    For reference, my previous Advance 2 w/ 500GB NVMe's in RBX had Western Digital drives.

    Are those bare metal servers? Can you identify your current NVmE drive brand/model?

    Code:
    udevadm info -a -p /sys/block/sda | grep ATTRS{model}

    could also use nvme list command from nvme-cli yum package
    Code (Text):
    yum -y install nvme-cli
    nvme list --o json

    Thanks, this is what I use as well. Don't have an OVH server atm, but I am looking into grabbing one and wanted to know which NVMes came with each selection before purchase, as their support wasn't able to specify.

    Figured I'd ask those of you who have one of these particular models to list what models theirs came with and their disk choices; like 2x450 GB Datacenter NVMe, 500GB Enterprise NVMe, = Samsung, WD, ect..

    Datecenter and Enterprise are interchangeable terms for SSD that made for Enterprise/Datacenter depending on the manufacturer. The opposite of that is consumer NVMe.

    In general terms I agree that's the case, but in OVH's it would seem to me they're using it as a way to differentiate the drives. If they were using it interchangeably why not label all the drives either Enterprise or Datacenter?

    Comparing their servers, the 500GB/1TB are listed as Enterprise and the 450GB/1.92TB are listed as Datacenter.

    Hello,
    From what I see, OVH 's NVMe disks are up to 4 years old :/
    Performances are not so great ...
