Registering for the service and creating the Cloud Server
In order to use our Cloud Computing services, you must initially have prepaid credit available in different denominations. To do this, the activation procedure initially includes the possibility of choosing the desired recharge cut (see the following image)
Once you have selected the desired cut and made the payment, the credit will be immediately available within ServerMate, the Hosting Solutions control panel, with which you can create and manage your own cloud instances.
Please note that you can always make additional prepaid credit top-ups at any time, directly from your control panel.
Cloud Computing accounts within ServerMate
From the ServerMate panel we can proceed to manage all the Cloud Computing options.
At this point we can create a new cloud instance by selecting the Create New Instance item
ITogether with the creation of the new instance, in the case of Linux operating system, it is advisable to generate a Keypair, which is essential for convenient and secure access to your cloud server. For full details on creating Linux cloud instances with KeyPair, please refer to the guide at the following link Creating Linux instances with keypair.
Creating an additional disk volume
You can add a separate volume from the one included in the istance both when creating a new istance and at any other time. This additional disk space will be seen by the cloud server as a futher disk division. This division (volume) can be transferred from the creation istance at any time and assigned to any other cloud istance.
For further details and insights on creating and assigning additional volumes, the following guide Manage permanent Volumes on cloud istances is available.
