Public Cloud Automation

Let's automate your cloud
Simplify your backups and other recurring actions!


OVH is preparing to launch new functionalities for scheduling and automating a range of recurring actions on your Public Cloud infrastructure.

These new tools will provide you with:

•    An easy method for performing basic tasks via your OVH Control Panel (for example, ensuring a daily backup of your server is automatically generated and retained for 14 days).

•    Full access to an OpenStack Mistral API, enabling you to schedule any action on your infrastructure. For example, you could automatically stop your CI/CD machines every weekend, or rebuild your demo servers every hour (based on snapshots), empty a storage container at the end of each month…

In order to effectively tailor this new service to your requirements, we need your feedback and real-world use cases. Help us by answering this short survey, after which you will enjoy early access to the new features on your existing OVH account. 

Complete survey and request early access

During the alpha phase of its development, this service will be completely free of charge.


During Beta and Alpha stages, the automation itself will be provided free of charge, so you will only pay for the storage of your snapshots at the standard price for your billing country (0.01€/GB/month in France). A daily backup of a 40GB machine with seven days’ retention would, for example, cost you about 0.01x40x7=2.80€ per month (excluding taxes).

During the alpha and beta development stages, OVH will not provide any contractual SLAs or support for this feature. The Mistral API will enable you to track the status of all your scheduled tasks, but you will be responsible for checking the consistency of your snapshots, for example.

The OpenStack Foundation maintains comprehensive documentation of Mistral’s capabilities. Once we will have enabled early access for the first group of users, we will also create an official thread on the OVH Community forum for questions and feedback.
