Image Management Service (IMS)

Administer operating systems with ease

Usable virtual machines are created by installing operating systems on the Flavors. To install the operating systems, the Flavors must provide a minimum amount of block storage (elastic volume storage). 

Public and Private Images

Besides the images provided for use on the Oen Telekom Cloud, users also have the option to install their own images from operating systems or applications. In this case, the user is responsible for license-compliant use and the technical functionality of the operating system or application. The Open Telekom Cloud also provides a bring-your-own-license model for this. Private images can be added to the public images so that users can reuse them at any time. It is also possible for users to share images within their organization. The image formats QCOW2, VMDK, RAW, VHD or VHDX can be used on the Open Telekom Cloud.

Effect of the operating system on the price: Please note that the operating system selected affects the price for the Elastic Cloud Server. If you select an operating system from the Open Linux category, you will receive the most favorable conditions compared with the other operating systems.
