Deploying a cloud server from a Volume Snapshot

Expertise level: Easy

If you already have a cloud server, deploying another one is easy and faster than the initial purchase. You can simply deploy a new server in the same account using the data from an existing cloud Volume Snapshot. There are two ways to do it, follow one of these instructions once you have created your Volume Snapshot:  

1. Log into your account at cc.iweb.com.

2. Under 'Your Products', go to Volume Management.

NOTE for Windows users: The Operating System licence will be automatically created and billed and the clone will have a unique IP address. All services linked to the existing IP address will need to be connected to the new IP address to remain functional. The Windows Administrator Account and associated data will not be replicated over to the new cloned machine (see step 9).
