Scaleway (SCW)

Qovery lets you quickly deploy applications to your Scaleway (Scaleway) account. No knowledge needed, and it takes less than 10 minutes to install Qovery on your Scaleway account.

Getting started

Connect your Scaleway account

To link your Scaleway account to Qovery you need to provide a Scaleway access key id, secret access key and a project id.

Create your Scaleway credentials - access key id, secret access key and project id.

  1. Connect to your Scaleway console

  2. Go to IAM

  3. Go to Applications

  4. Create a new application for your project

  5. Generate your new API key from your application view

    Set up the the preferred `Project` for `Object Storage` with your Scaleway Project
  6. Save the generated access key id and secret access key.

  7. Go to Policies

  8. Create a new policy with Principal linked to the application you just created.

  9. Set the scope of the policy to your project

  10. Select the following rules for your policy

    • Containers permissions
    • Network Service permissions
    • Compute permissions
    • Storage permissions
    • VPC permissions
  11. Create your policy

  12. Get you project id on your project dashboard

Well done!! You now have your Scaleway access key id, secret access key and project id; It is time to connect Qovery to your Scaleway account.

Install a new cluster on Qovery

You will be able to use the credentials you just generated when creating a cluster via the Qovery console. This cluster will be linked to your Qovery organization. Follow this documentation to create a new cluster on your organization.

Remove your Scaleway account

this section is under development - join us and be part of the first to try it

Delete Qovery from your Scaleway account

To delete Qovery from your Scaleway account you must be the owner of the Organization. Once your Scaleway account removed from Qovery, everything configured (VPC, Kubernetes, databases, ...) by Qovery will be deleted forever.


Qovery supports the following Scalewav regions:

🇫🇷fr-par-1Paris DC1 (France)
🇫🇷fr-par-2Paris DC2 (France)
🇫🇷fr-par-3Paris DC3 (France)
🇳🇱nl-ams-1Amsterdam DC1 (Netherlands)
🇵🇱pl-waw-1Warsaw DC1 (Poland)

Qovery supports regions where Scaleway Kubernetes (Kapsule) is supported.

How Qovery works on Scaleway

Qovery is an abstraction layer on top of Scaleway and Kubernetes. Qovery manages the configuration of Scaleway account, and helps you to deploy production ready apps in seconds. To make it works, Qovery rely on Kubernetes for stateless apps (containers), and Scaleway for stateful apps (databases, storage...).

Read more on how Qovery works behind the scene.


The first time you set up your Scaleway account, Qovery creates a Kubernetes cluster in your chosen region. Qovery managed it for you - no action required. It takes ~15 minutes to configure and bootstrap a Kubernetes cluster. Once bootstrapped, your Kubernetes cluster runs the Qovery app and is ready to deploy your applications.

Managed services

Scaleway provides managed services for PostgreSQL, MySQL, Redis, MongoDB. Qovery gives you access to those services when you set the environment mode to Production. In Development mode, Qovery provides containers equivalent, which is cheaper and faster to start.

Security and compliance

Qovery runs your Kubernetes cluster and is autonomous to manage your applications, which means:

  • Your configuration are stored on your Scaleway account.
  • Your configuration is encrypted on your Scaleway account.
  • Qovery can't access to your data.
  • Suppose Qovery stops to run, your applications are not impacted.


How to choose a region?

Different datacenters are located in different geographic areas, and you may want to keep your site physically close to the bulk of your user base for reduced latency.

Migrate between Cloud providers and regions

Today, you can't migrate an environment from one region to another after it has been created. Vote here if you need this feature.
