Create an image of a server
You can create images of your servers by taking snapshots, which is an image of your server in its current state. You can them use these snapshots to create new servers.
You must stop servers before you can create snapshots. This means while you're taking snapshots, you server cannot process requests.
It's also possible to have backup images of your servers automatically created by enabling automatic backups.
- In Cloud Servers, click the server you want to use.
- Click Stop.
- Click the Snapshots tab.
- Enter a Snapshot name, and then click Take snapshot.
- Click the Power tab, and then click Start.
