When a new instance is launched in a cloud, a Server is built with a base machine image. As a convenience to our users, we provide the ability to launch a variety of different images directly within the Dashboard. You can launch a working Server directly from an image, but we strongly recommend using ServerTemplates if you want to create a reproducible setup or require further customization.
Important! Instances that are launched directly from images cannot be added to Deployments.
