With Cloud Servers, you can create an image of any Cloud Server containing less than 80GB of data — and you can use this image to restore a server or clone a new one. You can create an unlimited number of images on-demand, or you can schedule an automatic daily or weekly image.

Images will be compressed and stored on Cloud Files at 12.65p /GB per month. If you delete a Cloud Server, the associated image stored in Cloud Files will persist in your account unless the image is explicitly removed.


Additional public IP addresses can be purchased for £4 per month.
