When a new instance is launched in a cloud, a server is built with a base machine image. 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 make further changes to it once it's launched. Best practices are incorporated within ServerTemplates. See ServerTemplates.
Note: Servers that are launched directly from images cannot be added to Deployments.
As a convenience to our users, we provide the ability to launch a variety of different images directly within the Dashboard. A list of (Machine) Images, Kernel Images, and Ramdisk Images are displayed below.
