General Information and Overview to Images

General Information

An image is a backup copy of your server. You can recover your server by installing an image. You can also use an image to install an additional server. This clones the original server. With a backup plan, you can opt for creating backups automatically at regular intervals. A server cannot be edited while an image is being created.
