2. OVH provides the servers (hosts) and disk arrays (datastores) that you have selected (including the 2 hosts and 2 datastores of the pack) in the data center of your choice, 100% dedicated and automatically configured in high availability mode.

Virtualisation deployment

3. We deploy your usual virtualization solution (VMware, Microsoft, etc.) automatically on these two servers and the cost of licenses is included.

Activate IaaS

4. We activate your 100% private network and your bandwidth

IaaS Cloud Access

5. 30 minutes later you will receive your secure access to one of the market-standard applications you already use to manage your cloud.
