NEW! This ecosystem is continuing — we have decided to extend this initiative to 15/09/20.



Technology has a role to play

For the duration of this healthcare crisis, many companies are working in solidarity with one another, to offer remote working, collaboration and healthcare hosting solutions. In light of the calls to action from local governments around the world, we encourage you to join #Open_solidarity. This initiative is an open, collective and global act of digital support — the aim of which is to provide technical solutions free of charge using OVHcloud infrastructures. The infrastructures are offered to service providers free of charge and on a zero-commitment basis for the entire duration of the crisis, to handle traffic spikes. To receive free infrastructure and take part, you will need to complete a form.



Join #Open_solidarity!


If you deliver solutions within the sectors concerned, and would like to offer them free of charge and commitment-free, we can provide you with free additional infrastructure. Join our initiative and apply via our form
(requests will not be processed if they are not submitted via this form). If you have any questions, please refer to our FAQ, or send an email to: contact@open-solidarity.com.

Your questions answered

What is #Open_solidarity?

Open Solidarity is an initiative that started in response to multiple calls to action from local governments around the world. This initiative is a collective, open act of digital solidarity — the aim of which is to make tech solutions more widely available by offering them free for the duration of the crisis.

How does it work?

We are delivering infrastructure, bare-metal, private cloud and public cloud services free of charge and commitment-free to our existing customers in qualifying sectors — for the entire duration of the crisis. The purpose of this is to absorb traffic spikes. We are also centralising our SaaS products, which offer free solutions to help companies during the confinement period.

What is the duration of this offer?

This exceptional offer is a response to an exceptional situation. It has a limited duration, currently set at 15th September 2020.

What criteria do I need to meet in order to sign up?

You need to offer a solution or service free of charge, on a commitment-free basis, for the purpose of overcoming the current crisis. Your business also needs to fall within the healthcare, education and remote working sectors. #WorkFromHome #CollaborativeSolutions #Healthcare.

How do I sign up and take part?

To receive free infrastructure and take part, you will need to complete an online form. You will be asked for a number of details, as well as a short description of the solution you are offering free of charge.

How long is the waiting period for receiving a response?

We are receiving a high volume of applications, and are working hard to respond as soon as possible.

Why was my application declined?

To receive free infrastructure and take part, you need to meet the criteria listed. Our infrastructures are limited, so we are very carefully selecting solutions that are given out open-source and free to a broad community. These solutions also need to fall within activity sectors that are considered strategic for companies and schools to work properly — or otherwise they need to fall within the healthcare sector. In any case, we are providing this infrastructure for the sole purpose of helping people face the ongoing healthcare crisis.

I have been accepted. What happens next?

You will be contacted by an advisor, who will send your OVHcloud invoice via email. You can then receive the additional infrastructure free of charge, which will be used to handle traffic spikes. You will also receive the technical information. To put your solution online and guarantee high visibility, you will be asked for additional information such as your logo, a short description of your solution, and more.
