Main Features



Get commitment-free cloud resources, with no unexpected surprises in your billing. No more pre-provisioning servers or storage, and no more dormant infrastructures: simply create and delete each item as you need. We only bill you for your actual usage.

Simple and transparent billing

Your resources and services are grouped into projects. This means you can segment your uses according to your business needs. At the end of the month, a bill per project is generated, allowing for simple and clear administration. You can also generate a usage forecast and create alerts.

Standardised APIs

All Public Cloud services are accessible via standard cloud computing APIs - OpenStack for Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Kubernetes for container orchestration, and so on - so you can program your cloud resources through the tools that suit you.

ISO/IEC 27001, 27701 and health data hosting compliance

Our cloud infrastructures and services are ISO/IEC 27001, 27017, 27018 and 27701 certified. These certifications ensure the presence of an information security management system (ISMS) for managing risks, vulnerabilities and implementing business continuity, as well as a privacy information management system (PIMS). Thanks to our health data hosting compliance, you can also host healthcare data securely.

Pricing Public Cloud


Public Cloud is a very affordable, high-performance platform. The range of services and the flexibility of resource sizing allow you to manage your usage in the best way possible, depending on your needs. We pay particular attention to cost predictability. We don’t charge for services beyond your control (instance traffic from outside the Asia-Pacific region, storage processes, API calls, etc.).

Why choose Public Cloud instances?

Public Cloud instances (virtual servers) combine flexibility and guaranteed resources. In under a minute, you get CPU, RAM and storage with no resource over-allocation, as well as root access. The OVHcloud Public Cloud offers hourly billing, and a number of features such as the ability to add resources without having to reinstall. With the OpenStack API, you can automate your infrastructure.

Which cloud solution should you choose?

There are different types of cloud models available, depending on your needs. These include: IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service), which gives you access to a range of services including servers, storage and networking, PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service), which provides the user with hardware and software, leaving users free to focus on installing and running applications, and finally SaaS (Software-as-a-Service), where you simply use software over the internet and have no management tasks.

High availability, simplicity, flexibility and reversibility

Our Public Cloud is hosted in our datacentres, on servers assembled by our technicians, for performance and total control from manufacturing to provisioning. Public Cloud is very intuitive to use, and it’s flexible, so you can adapt it for your specific project. But that's not all, because we use standard APIs — so your data is reversible. Our products are also interoperable, so you can set up a hybrid cloud.

How does the Public Cloud work?

The public cloud is an option for deploying your cloud computing services. The resources, like computing power and storage — as well as the hardware infrastructure that provides the service — are shared. Unlike private cloud solutions, where hardware resources are dedicated to each customer, they are shared between customers of the cloud service provider in the public cloud.

Like other types of cloud solution, the web hosting company maintains the physical servers and network, and manages the virtualisation layer. This means the service provider can manage resource allocation, and ensure that its customers’ services are isolated.

Automation is one of the cornerstones of the public cloud. Via the OVHcloud Control Panel or the API, you can deploy instances (virtual machines) in a datacentre of your choice, with guaranteed resources in terms of storage capacity and computing power.
