OVHCloud is not for my remote desktop usage


I explained in two posts, for GCP and Azure my workflow for the setup of remote desktop as cheap as possible.

The idea is simple, using Terraform for automatisations, and here are the steps

On turn on

On turn off

This setup gives me a very low cost (almost free) when I'm not running the instance. This works if thoses steps as fast enought and worth the waiting time.

This is where OVH Cloud got it wrong for my case.

There is no way that I am willing to wait 15 minutes to start use my instance that is not cheap with the hour stuff. It is a shame for the not so expensive GPU. Did I miss something? But as far as I test, this will not be for me.

Update 2 years latter, it still the same process, nothing change much in OVHCloud.
