Data Backup

We recommend that you backup your data prior to performing various tasks such as adding virtual machines, re-installation and migration. For more information about how to back up data, please refer to the Guide.

Automatic Configuration

Creating or rebooting a virtual machine, and re-installation of the OS may be performed at any time using the Cloud Console.

Settings are all done automatically; if other tasks are being performed, there is a possibility that automatic operations would be in a "Pending" state.

Security measures

Security measures on the operation of virtual servers can be conducted upon the user's request. This service is different from the common shared services of GMO Cloud Hosting.
