Image Management Service

Compute service, part of Flexible Engine by Orange Business Services

This service provides you with a management console for your server images. You can create custom images to quickly deploy your applications or launch servers from images proposed by Orange.

An image is used to create servers with an operating system (OS) and preinstalled applications, or vice versa to back up an existing server in the form of an image.

This image management service offers a flexible web management console to manage your images.

The server copy service lets you create an exact image of your installed applications and the image management service lets you launch a functional copy of the server

In doing so, you streamline your projects by simply copying your development environment to a test and production environment.
You can use this service as a business recovery system by importing a QCOW2 image from your environment to Flexible Engine and then restart your service on the cloud.

Private images that can be exported include those you have downloaded to the system or created from servers using free public images. Exported images can be in the following formats:

  • VMDK
  • QCOW2
  • VHD
  • ZVHD

Public images can have third-party licenses (Windows, Redhat, Suse). You are billed for these licenses.
