Questions you may have before joining the programme
What are the benefits of our programme?
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 solutions 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 programme?
We are committed to supporting innovative startups all over the world, regardless of the stage reached... whether or not you are an OVH customer, whether you are a team with an idea you want to test, or a startup generating turnover.
I am already an OVH customer, can I join the programme?
Yes! Through our Digital Launch Pad programme you will benefit from customised support enabling you to develop your solution/service.
My startup is already part of another programme, can I join the DLP anyway?
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 programme?
The programme is completely free and OVH will not be involved in your startup in any way. We simply give you the means to succeed and you handle the rest.
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.
|OVH 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 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.
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 that distributes traffic load across the IP addresses of your various services in our datacentres. Thanks to Anycast technology, you get better performance when faced with high traffic, fault tolerance and optimised response times.
|OVH 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 our free 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 does the OVH Digital Launch Pad differ from other programmes?
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, you can still migrate your infrastructure if you choose. We believe that if we provide you with quality service, you will continue to collaborate with OVH. It's as simple as that!
How do I apply?
All applications are submitted online by completing our registration form and using the customer account you wish to be credited. The process is simple and takes less than 15 minutes. Once your application is sent, the team in charge of selecting startups will give you a response within one week.
