For Cloud Servers, Virtual Server Cloud, VPS und Dedicated Servers managed in the Cloud Panel

An image is a backup copy of your server. You can use this to restore your Virtual Server Cloud or Cloud Server. You can also use an image that you created from a Cloud Server to create an additional Cloud Server. This clones the original server. However, you can use your own images only in the IONOS data center in which they were created. If you wish to use your own images in multiple data centers to create new servers, you must create at least one image in each IONOS data center.

You can create individual images manually. Alternatively, you can have images created at regular intervals using the automatic image creation function. A server cannot be processed while an image of it is being created.

Please Note

Images cannot be created for Dedicated Servers.
