Main Features



Use cloud resources with no commitment and get a bill that reflects your actual usage. You don’t need to anticipate any servers or storage you may need: just create the resources when you need them and then delete them when your project is complete. We only charge you for your actual usage.

Simple and transparent billing

Your resources and services are grouped into projects, allowing you to 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 get a usage forecast and set up alerts.

Standardized APIs

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

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 (storage processes, API calls, etc.).

Support and Documentation

Why choose Public Cloud instances?

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


Which cloud solution is right for you?

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 severs, storage and networking, PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service), which provides the user with hardware and software freeing users up 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 data centers, on servers assembled by our technicians, for high 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 projects. But that's not all. Because we use standard APIs, your data is reversible, and our products are interoperable, so you can set up a hybrid cloud.
