48.7 Ubuntu Linode Disk Image


Linode offers a disk image facility to take a snapshot of your disk, either as a backup or to restore later after deleting the server to save on cost while it is not required. The storage costs 10c per GB per month.

Unfortunately a single image can be up to only 6GB and so in general this is not a useful approach to saving a current server image to be restored.

To create an image navigate to Images on the left menu and click Create.
