Subscribing to an OMI Product

As an OUTSCALE Marketplace buyer, you can subscribe to an OUTSCALE machine image (OMI) product from the catalog based on an hourly, free/open source, or bring your own license (BYOL) offer.

You can then create virtual machines (VMs) from the corresponding OMI. For more information, see Creating VMs.

The My subscriptions page enables you to view the hourly and free/open source product subscriptions of your organization, and the BYOL products your organization has accessed via the seller partners' websites.

From this page, you can obtain seller partners' contact information, view the product documentation, and download the corresponding license agreement. If the seller partner has provided one, you can also access a template to automate product deployment.

  • Seller partners can unpublish OMI products, for example if these have reached their end of life, or unpublish specific versions of OMI products. In both cases, subscribers and their organization administrators are automatically informed by email.

  • Once an OMI is unpublished, you cannot create VMs from it anymore. However, VMs already launched from the OMI can still be used.

Subscribing to an OMI Product Billed by the Hour

  • When subscribing to an OMI product billed by the hour, you pay the rate of the product offer per hour determined by 3DS OUTSCALE and the rate of one or more VMs on the OUTSCALE Cloud.

  • Once you have subscribed to an OMI product billed by the hour, the members of your organization are automatically given access to the corresponding OMI.

To subscribe to an OMI product billed by the hour:

  1. In the Marketplace interface, click the Catalog tab.
    The product catalog appears.

  2. Use the filters on the left-hand side to find the desired product.
