Make the most of your images.
Software images are stored copies of ready-to-use servers that the IBM SmartCloud uses to build new servers for you. They are created by taking a snapshot of a running server. To take full advantage of the cloud, you and your team will likely want to create images of cloud servers you have customized to fit your needs.
To help you get started, IBM has built and maintains two kinds of public software images that you can use to build servers:
Each of these public images may serve as a starting point for building customized servers—private images visible only to you and selected team members, with unique settings and additional software incorporated.
Operating system images
You also have the option of importing Linux images that have or use tools available in the cloud to build images from operating systems and software bundles.
