Questions you may have before joining the programme
What are the benefits of our program?
When you join the programme, we provide you with an infrastructure budget of up to $100,000 to deploy a solution built on the OVH infrastructure. You will also get expert assistance from our solution architects as you develop your project. Our goal is to offer a solution that meets the needs of all startups in order to provide powerful infrastructures so you can set up a flexible and highly-available service.
Which startups are eligible for the program?
We are committed to supporting innovative startups all over the world regardless of their maturity level, whether you are an OVH customer or not, a team with an idea you want to test, or a startup generating revenue.
I am already an OVH customer, can I join the program?
Yes! Through our Digital Launch Pad programme you will benefit from customized support enabling you to develop your solution/service.
My startup is already part of another program, can I join the DLP anyways?
Yes! You can subscribe to our support program. This will be an opportunity for you to compare our solutions with the alternatives on the market.
Is it free? Is there anything I have to provide in return for joining the program?
The program is totally free and OVH will not take any participation in your startup. We give you the means to succeed and you take care of it.
How do I spend my infrastructure budget?
Once your application has been accepted and the contracts have been confirmed, we will transfer the DLP infrastructure budget to your account. This amount can be spent on the services listed in the chart below.
|Public Cloud||Ideation, Build and Market||
Public Cloud instances (virtual servers) combine flexibility and guaranteed resources. In under a minute, you get CPU, RAM and storage with no resource overallocation. You are also the root user, as you are with a dedicated server. Public Cloud incorporates hourly billing and a number of features such as the ability to add resources without reinstalling. The OpenStack API lets you automate your infrastructure.
OVH Cloud storage: Two innovative and complementary technologies for hosting your data.
|Load Balancing IP||Ideation, Build and Market||
The Load Balancing IP is an IP address carried by the OVH network which spreads traffic load across the IPs of your OVH services hosted in our datacenters. Thanks to the Anycast technology, it improves performance during traffic spikes, tolerance in the event of failures and optimizes response times.
|Private Cloud||Build and Market||
The OVH Private Cloud is a unique solution combining 100% dedicated hardware with the scalability and flexibility of the Cloud. Your infrastructure is virtualised using VMware technology and your hardware is fully managed by OVH, through the Dedicated Cloud, SDDC, Healthcare and Payment Infrastructure proucts.
Simply create unlimited VMs from the vSphere interface!
|Dedicated Game Servers||Build and Market||
Servers which combine performance and security thanks to the inclusion of our anti-DDoS protection specifically designed for gaming.
|GPU Dedicated Servers||Build and Market||
Thanks to their computing power, GPU servers are equipped with graphic cards and designed to accelerate the processing of parallel tasks.
How is OVH Digital Launch Pad different from other programs?
Joining the Digital Launch Pad programme gives you the opportunity to test our solutions (dedicated servers, cloud infrastructures...) and get expert advice for free. We will always give you a transparent monthly or hourly rate. In addition, this collaboration is not exclusive and you can always migrate your infrastructure if you choose to do so. We believe that if we provide you with quality service, you will continue to collaborate with OVH. It's as simple as that!
