Introduction to Images

A virtual machine image, referred to in this document simply as an image, is a single file that contains a virtual disk that has a bootable operating system installed on it. Images are used to create virtual machine instances within the cloud. For information about creating image files, see the OpenStack Virtual Machine Image Guide on the OpenStack website.

Depending on your role, you may have permission to upload and manage virtual machine images. Your Cloud Administrator  might restrict the upload and management of images. If you have the appropriate privileges, you can use the dashboard to upload and manage images in the admin project.

Please Note:

You can also use the glance and nova command-line clients or the Image Service and Compute APIs to manage images. See the section called “Manage images”.
