Setting Up and Securing Your ServerStadium Cloud VM Instance: A Step-by-Step Guide

Tutorial: Setting Up and Securing Your Cloud VM Instance with ServerStadium

Welcome to this tutorial on how to set up and secure your ServerStadium Cloud VM Instance. We will walk you through creating and customizing your VM, setting up VM backups, and creating a VM snapshot for your business.

Step 1: Creating Your VM Instance

First, visit ServerStadium and sign up or log into your account. Once logged in, navigate to the dashboard and select the ‘Create VM Now’ option under ‘Cloud VM Instance’. You will be directed to the VM creation page.

Here, you can customize your VM to fit your needs. Choose the operating system from various options including Centos, Debian, Fedora, Ubuntu, Microsoft Windows, and many more. Customize your VM size by selecting the CPU, memory, and disk capacity that suits your business needs. Once your specifications are set, click ‘Create’ to initiate your VM.

Step 2: Setting Up VM Backup

Now that your VM is running, let’s set up VM backups to protect your data. Navigate to the ‘VM Backup‘ feature on the dashboard and select ‘Configure Backup’. Here, you can set your preferences for backup frequency and retention period. Click ‘Save’ to set up your backup schedule.

Regular backups can help protect your business from data loss due to unforeseen circumstances or cyber threats. ServerStadium’s VM Backup solution is designed to protect your valuable infrastructure from such threats.

Step 3: Creating a VM Snapshot

For an additional layer of data protection, consider creating a VM snapshot. This feature allows you to capture the state of your VM at any moment, preserving the configuration and data of your VM in a single snapshot.

To create a snapshot, navigate to your dashboard’s ‘VM Snapshot’ feature and click ‘Create Snapshot’. You can also customize the frequency and retention of your snapshots to fit your backup strategy.

Step 4: Securing Your VM Instance

Security is a priority at ServerStadium, and as such, our VM Instances come with advanced security measures, including VPN, SSH-Key, Firewall, Load Balancer, and more. We also operate from an ISO 27001 and SOC II Type 2 audited data center, providing additional security for your data and infrastructure.
