AI Notebooks conçue sur des standards ouverts et open source

Built on open and open-source standards

AI Notebooks offers the most popular code editing applications: Jupyter and VS Code. By default, each notebook is compatible with industry-leading applications and frameworks such as Scikit-learn, TensorFlow, PyTorch and Hugging Face. This means you get total reversibility for your projects.

Use case

Once you have created your Public Cloud project, you can launch your notebooks directly on CPU and GPU computing resources. You can do this via the OVHcloud Control Panel, an API, or in the command line. In just a few clicks, you can deploy Jupyter or VS Code notebooks linked to your preferred framework (TensorFlow, PyTorch, MXNet or Hugging Face).

Via the OVHcloud Control Panel

Our web interface offers many features, including a dashboard to monitor your notebooks, the ability to launch new instances, manage your data sets, and much more.

No installation required

The AI Notebooks service is fully managed by OVHcloud. It does not require any technical skills to be used. This is useful for data scientists who want to launch a work environment quickly and easily.

Available in seconds

It only takes a few seconds to launch a notebook with a full machine learning environment.

CPU and GPU resources

In AI Notebooks, you can select the type and volume of resources you want to allocate to your notebook, so that it suits your needs. You can also use both CPU and GPU, which is very useful for machine learning.

A range of frameworks to choose from

Choose from a wide range of frameworks, including the most popular ones: TensorFlow, PyTorch, Scikit-learn, MXNet and Hugging Face.

Jupyter and VS Code

AI Notebooks offers the two most popular open-source live code editors. This means you can improve productivity by selecting an environment users are familiar with, and you also get guaranteed reversibility.

Data management made simple

AI Notebooks offers a simple and efficient way to work with your own data, stored in our Object Storage solution. Your data is synced by leveraging CPU and GPU resources for optimal performance. This data is visible in your notebook, so you can work quickly and efficiently without time-consuming import constraints.

Increased user security

With AI Notebooks, you can control access to your notebooks. You are free to choose from specific user roles and applications, or allow an open connection for everyone.

Compatibility with your current notebooks

Easily import your existing notebooks, created on similar platforms (Colab,, or hosting platforms like GitHub or GitLab.


With AI Notebooks, you can start and manage your notebooks via the OVHcloud Control Panel, the API, or in the command line. This gives you the freedom to manage your pipelines.

Monitoring tools

At no extra cost, AI Notebooks natively offers tools like Grafana to monitor your projects. Monitor the load of your CPU and GPU resources in real time, or even ongoing network traffic.

Simple and pay-as-you-go rates

You can opt for pay-per-use billing with AI Notebooks. You only pay for notebooks that are currently running, depending on the CPU and GPU resources you have selected. This pricing method matches your resource usage, and allows you to start a notebook for a few pennies a day.

Pricing Public Cloud

OVHcloud AI Notebooks billing

For each training task you launch, you pay per minute for the computing resources used, depending on their lifespan and the number of GPUs allocated.

No commitment is required to use this service.

Artificial intelligence accelerated by cloud solutions

Artificial intelligence technology is based on the use of computing units to learn, just as humans would. With the rise of cloud computing and digital transformation, projects involving AI are taking off now more than ever. Data storage and the computing power required to process data are decisive factors in achieving success. Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions are an asset because you can use them to adapt your configuration as required, and choose the computing power you need. Some of the applications closely linked to AI are big data architectures. They process massive volumes of data with their algorithms in record time. Software applications like Apache Spark, Apache Hadoop and MongoDB databases are widely used in big data solutions. The data analyst — who manages data processing — uses certain programming languages like Python, Scala, R and Java. The quality of the data collected is important for achieving maximum accuracy in results. Other uses for AI include predictive analysis, business intelligence, machine learning, data management and much more.


What is a notebook for machine learning?

Notebooks revolutionise collaborative work within machine learning projects. A notebook is an application you can use to create code, and share it within a team. On top of helping teams work collaboratively on your machine learning project, it can also be used to view data set rendering.

What is Jupyter in machine learning?

Jupyter is an open-source web application that enables users to work in up to 40 different programming languages. These include Python, Julia, Ruby and R. Jupyter — all programming languages that are closely associated with machine learning. Various tools have been developed, such as Jupyter Notebook, which facilitates collaborative work within scientific projects. There are multiple fields of application for machine learning, as well as data analytics, statistics, and data visualisation. Jupyter Notebook for machine learning is much more than just an IDE (Integrated Development Environment), and is suitable for any type of data science project. With our solution, get Jupyter Notebook online through the cloud.

What is an AI framework?

An AI framework is a software infrastructure dedicated to artificial intelligence. It is a set of software tools that form the basis of an AI project’s architecture. Here are some examples of AI frameworks: Scikit-learn, TensorFlow, Jupyter Notebook and PyTorch.
