What Is Image Management Service?

What Is Image Management Service?


An image is an Elastic Cloud Server (ECS) template that contains software and mandatory configurations. Specifically, an image contains an operating system (OS) and may also contain proprietary software and application software, such as database software. Images are classified into public, private, and shared images.

Image Management Service (IMS) provides easy-to-use self-service image management functions. You can use a public, private, or shared image to apply for ECSs. You can also create a private image using an ECS or an external image file.


  • Public Image

    Public images are standard images provided by the cloud platform system, including the common standard OS and preinstalled public applications. Public images can provide easy and convenient image self-service management functions, which are visible for all users. You can conveniently use the public image to create an ECS or BMS.

  • Private Image
    Private images are created by users using existing ECSs and are visible only to their creators. They contain an OS, preinstalled public applications, and the user's private applications. Using a private image to create ECSs removes the need to configure multiple ECSs repeatedly. Private images can be created using ECSs or external image files.
    • Creating a private image using an ECS
    • Creating a private image using an external image file
  • Shared Image

    You can share your private images with other users. If you are a multi-project user, the image sharing function allows you to use images conveniently in multiple projects in the same region.

    The image provider can share specified images, cancel sharing images, and add or delete tenants with whom they share images. The recipient can choose to accept or refuse images shared by other users, and can remove the images they have accepted.
