The power of premium servers, the flexibility of the Public Cloud
OVH works on a large scale with the best hardware, to offer infrastructures at the most competitive price/performance ratio. Each resource is adjusted and configured to provide maximum power to your Public Cloud instances. Our Public Cloud Solutions catalogue is composed of different ranges and options that cover all your cloud needs. All our resources are available on demand, to offer you complete flexibility.
Our cloud computing instances
Deploy cloud instances with fully-guaranteed resources that cover a very wide range of uses

You can add one or more disks to increase the storage space available on your servers. Our cloud storage solutions can be resized at any time. See Block Storage
Local SSD disks
The disks powering Public Cloud instances are based on SSD technology, offering exceptional read/write performance.
Choice of operating system
Choose from 15 Linux, Windows or FreeBSD distributions. You can also import your own images, to complete the catalogue. SeePublic Image Catalog
Backup your instances
Your instances’ disks can be backed up and exported to a different cluster to be reused later. Your sensitive data is protected. See Instance Backup
Rebuild an instance
To start from scratch on an instance while keeping its original configuration, the rebuild mode allows you to reset the operating system instead of the instance.
Our servers are delivered in a few seconds and billed hourly. You can also modify the instance power, depending on usage.
Monthly billing at 50% off.
You can choose monthly billing for your servers. This gives you an even more advantageous price (50% discount on the hourly price).
When you will not need an instance for a while, it is a good idea to use the ‘shelve’ function, which hibernates the instance and reduces costs.
The network is protected by OVH’s powerful anti-DDoS system. All your instances benefit from this protection at no extra cost.
Your instances can run startup scripts when cloud-init is enabled in the operating system. This means you can customise any cloud server deployment.
Start an instance by transferring files or variables that will be injected into the operating system. This feature is very useful for automating your deployments.
Accessing the KVM console
The server’s virtual console is available directly through your browser, for all actions that cannot be performed via the network.
Flexible network connection
You can create networks and network ports on demand and attach instances while running (hot add). It is also possible to have multiple connections on the same instance. See Private network
The lock function allows you to lock any action on the instance. Only the owner of the instance will be able to act on it, which allows you to work as a team, with complete peace of mind.
Public Cloud by OVH
A simple cloud that lets you focus on your projects
The Public Cloud we have created is open and easy to use, allowing you to focus on developing and deploying your software solutions.
Based on OpenStack, it is built on open standards, so you can easily manage and deploy instances, and automate actions via APIs. Developers can rely on Public Cloud instances hosted in our datacentres, so they spend less time managing the software stack, and stay focused on their core business. This allows you to deploy high-availability cloud instances for a wide range of uses.
An open, reversible and transparent cloud
Moving to the cloud should not result in dependence on any type of infrastructure or data retention. Our Public Cloud is based on OpenStack, as well as on a set of standard and open APIs and services to make it easier for you to orchestrate. This ensures global interoperability of your infrastructures, both with other OVH solutions and with your existing cloud services and infrastructures. In addition, your data remains accessible, transferable and exploitable at any time, without retention or technical barriers. This is why our cloud solution is standard, open, accessible, transparent and multi-local.
