Question

cloning server

Posted May 5, 2014 5.3k views
I have a basic application that we install on servers at rackspace. We are looking at more affordable solutions and the reason I am on your site today. I am wondering if the following is possible. 1. We create a mirror image of our server. 2. Setup new account for new client on your server 3. Restore our server image. (That was created on a different account). This was we can deploy our application onto individual accounts without having to configure the server each and every time. I ope this make sense. Please respond ASAP.

Hi there Aaron,

That's absolutely possible. Using our control panel, you can take a snapshot of your server and transfer it to a different user easily. Check out the blog post announcing the feature for all the information:
