Managing OMIs on the OUTSCALE Marketplace

The OUTSCALE Marketplace is an OUTSCALE Machine Images (OMIs) platform provided by independent software vendors (ISVs) from 3DS OUTSCALE’s trusted ecosystem. For more information, see the Marketplace official website (available in French only).

You can use the OUTSCALE Marketplace as an ISV, a visitor, or both:

  • As an ISV, you can create and publish OUTSCALE Machine Images (OMIs) on the OUTSCALE Marketplace. For more information on the creation of OMIs, see Creating an OMI.

  • As a visitor, you can create instances from OMIs available on the OUTSCALE Marketplace. For more information, see Creating / Launching Instances.

Publishing an OMI

Before you begin: To publish an OMI on the OUTSCALE Marketplace, an ISV account is required. An ISV account is a Cloud account with the necessary capacity and resources to create and publish OMIs.
