Image Service

Description

The Image service holds VM base OS images and volume images. OS images are used to create a VM - they hold the VM's root filesystem. There are many prebuilt OS images available in the Cloud with different OSes such as Linux and Windows and preconfigured tools and libraries. We keep a backward repository of OS images. Volume images are copies of Volume Storage. A User can create a new Storage Volume or a new VM from the Image or keep it as a backup.

Provisioning

Images can be managed via the API and Cloud Dashboard. A Project/Tenant may have private images that are invisible to other Projects/Tenants. An image from one project can be shared with other projects. An image is also created when performing the shelve option on a VM, and depending on the settings, it may be required to delete it manually after VM restoration.
