KVM ISOs and System Templates

This document has not been completed and is a work in progress, thank you for your patience. If you have any questions, please open a ticket with our support staff.

Last updated: 4/8/2017

This knowledge base is dedicated to operating systems available within our KVM products. This will frequently be updated as we add and remove ISO's and System Templates.

System Templates - Pre-created images that can be deployed to your KVM VPS quickly without effort or configuration. These are mostly supplied to us. However, we are making efforts to provide our own created and tested templates.

ISO Image - Is a disk image provided by a company, like Microsoft or distribution, like Ubuntu. ISO images are very flexible and are intended to be burned to a CD/DVD, however, in KVM we can mount an ISO just like using a CD to install your system (in this case virtual). This will require that you, the customer, start the installation from the very beginning and can be time-consuming. However, you gain the ability to customize the install.
