This guide will show you how to add hourly resources via the Private Cloud vSphere interface.

To access the interface where you can add hourly resources, select the datacenter, then click Configure.

Add a host

In our example, we will add a host server that will be billed per hour. Once you have chosen a model, click Next. Please note that to add a datastore, you will need to click on the Add OVH Storage tab.

Once you have confirmed your order, you can track progress as the resource is being added.
