With snapshots, you can create new images from running instances.

You can create a snapshot of an instance directly from the Instances page.


  1. Log in to the VMware Integrated OpenStack dashboard.
  2. Select the project from the drop-down menu in the title bar.
  3. Select Project > Compute > Instances.
    The Instances page lists the instances available to the current user.
  4. In the Actions column, click Create Snapshot.

    The snapshot appears on the Images page.
