Images & Licences

Templates you can use

OVH provides you with VM, Linux and Windows templates in the hypervisor catalogues. Due to compatability, the templates available may vary from one hypervisor to another. OVH also enables you to purchase licences directly from your Control Panel.

The licencing of Windows virtual machines must be activated in the v6 Manager, per Private Cloud datacentre. You will be billed according to the number of hosts with Windows virtual machines, or the number of virtual machines, depending on which is most beneficial to you.

Starting on the 1st of November, 2016, rates for the SPLA licences will be based on the number of physical cores found in the Hosts. You will be billed according to the number of Hosts with Windows virtual machines or according to the number of virtual machines. Whichever is more cost-effective for you.

This change will take effect when your services are renewed in December 2016.
