8.1.1 Managing the FTP account (virtual disks) Cloud Server Pro service guide

In order to manage the images of virtual disks, Aruba Cloud Computing offers a free FTP space (up to 50 Gb) for each account and each data center. This FTP space can be used to upload CD/DVD images to be uploaded on the Cloud Server Virtual CD/DVD player, to upload images of virtual disks to be imported in the Aruba Cloud Computing system, and in this same space will be saved the images exported by the system. The only accepted file formats for the virtual disk images are .vmdk (VMware) and .vhd (Hyper-V) files.

From the control panel go to the page for the tab "Manage"

and select "Template" > "Import Disk" from the menu on the left

which will take you to a page where the connection data for your FTP Account are highlighted, and where the files uploaded in this area are listed (.vmdk and .vhd file types).

By downloading any FTP client (such as FileZilla, CoreFTP, Cyberduck, etc.) and using the data available to you, you will have access to the area where you can upload images of virtual disks to be imported, or download the exported virtual disks.
All the files loaded in the FTP area are controlled by our Cloud system and all the uploaded images will appear as a list.
