Why choose Cloud instances?

The Cloud provides technologies and solutions which are automatic, flexible and accessible wherever you are.

Cost efficiency

Once upon a time, start up costs might have been a real constraint, not so with cloud computing. Billing is adapted to your usage from the word go. If your needs evolve over time you can adapt your usage accordingly and only pay for the resources you need for your business.

Say no to hardware headaches

Cloud computing offers users a level of hardware abstraction that means they don't have to worry about all the operational aspects of a datacentre. Hardware is provided and maintained by OBCloud team. You don't need to deal with stock problems.


Forget about infrastructure management and concentrate on developing your business. OBCloud will take care of the rest.

Cloud software solutions (SaaS)

Get a workstation that is available at any time. You will always get your own environment with all the same data and applications no matter where you are.

Our cloud computing

Our cloud instance is a high-level automation that delivers a fast, self-service model. Otherwise known as "service on demand"
or "as a Service" (*aaS) in the context of infrastructure (IaaS), a platform (PaaS) or software (SaaS)..

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.

You are also the root user, as you would be with a dedicated server. Public Cloud provides 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.

Migrate an application to the Cloud

  • High-availability storage
  • Additional disks
  • A simple control panel interface
  • Monthly billing

Our Public Cloud solutions are particularly suited to migrating web and business applications away from dedicated servers, which were previously on site or at a service provider. Hardware RAID replicates SSD drives in order to ensure that the system is durable, while the data on your additional disks is secured by triple replication with Ceph. One more advantage: you save money by paying monthly, while getting the flexibility you need in unforeseen circumstances.

Managing peak loads

  • Add a server in less than 1 min
  • Compatible with Load Balancing IPs
  • Usage alerts
  • Cloud-init syntax

On its own or in combination with other infrastructures (especially our Dedicated Servers or Private Cloud), our Public Cloud brings full scalability to your projects. Respond to a peak load immediately by adding instances, or temporarily increasing a machine's resources. We can automate all these adjustments using post-installation scripts with cloud-init and you can manage your costs thanks to usage alerts.

Give your development teams awesome freedom

  • Single invoice and credit for each project
  • Delegate rights
  • Pay hourly
  • Low-cost "VPS" instances
  • Hire developers and ensure developers build on your cloud server
  • Build, test and run your application on your cloud

As each project is managed individually, you will be able to give each of your tech teams their own budget. They will then have total freedom to use the resources they need for development and tests. This flexibility also extends to the infrastructure, speeding up your projects. You can test how an application will behave with dozens of different configurations.

Speed up mass data processing

  • High-performance private networks
  • CPU and RAM instances
  • Local SSD disks
  • OpenStack API compatible with orchestrators
  • Video processing, software compilation and integration
  • Big Data analysis

many projects require significant computing power for varying lengths of time. Our most powerful servers deliver up to 32 high-frequency cores, local SSDs, and they are connected to the vRack which means you can create clusters. Through our control panel integrated with OpenStack API, you can automate when work begins and ends, so you only pay for the hours you need for your business.

Performance and high availability
OBCloud ensures guaranteed resources, without over-allocation. 100% of your resources, 100% of the time.

Flexibility on instances
Adapt your instances to your needs by upgrading or downgrading them at any time. Add disks and IPs and move them between instances.

Open source and reversibility
OBCloud uses, contributes to and shows the OpenStack APIs, which ensure that your cloud environments are portable and able to work in hybrid mode.

Client Area Interface
Our Client area interface of OBCloud Public Cloud should look like the one on the screen above. As you can see, our control panel contains useful options needed for managing cloud VMs.

noVNC Console
One of the most interesting functionalities is access to a noVNC console where you or your clients can remotely manage their servers. To access it, simply press on the 'Console' button.


OpenStack is more than just a cloud platform

Large open source community

  • OpenStack has one of the fastest growing open source networks in the world. This community of developers and technicians make sure that updates are available every half year.

Developed by NASA

  • NASA started the OpenStack project. By making the code open source, it has now become one of the most reliable and powerful platforms to manage a cloud network.
