Create server from snapshot

You can use snapshots you've taken as the base image of new servers you create.

  1. In Cloud Servers, click Create Server.
  2. Complete the following sections, and then click Finish:
    Option Description
    Choose a Size Select the size of server you want to use. Depending on the size of your snapshot, you might not be able to create a server smaller than the one you used to create the snapshot.
    Choose an Image Click the Snapshots tab, and then select the snapshot you want to use.
    Security Info Enter a Username for the server.

    If you want to connect with an SSH key pair, you need to create a key (Windows / Mac OS X), click Connect through SSH instead, and then select the Key you want to use.

    Otherwise, enter a Password.
    Dynamic IP addresses Select any dynamic IP addresses you want to attach to this server.

    If you want to use the same dynamic IP address as the server you used to create the snapshot, you can assign the IP address to this server after destroying the old one.
    Other Options Select if you want to use Automated backups or Add boot script.
