Paperspace Templates (Base Images)
Paperspace offers stock templates that include only the Operating System and Paperspace software. A list of base images can be found here.
NOTE: There are some additional steps to create a Template from a Linux VM. To create a Linux Template, please follow these instructions.
A custom template can be created from an existing VM. The custom template contains the entire disk image of the original VM. Once a template has been successfully created, it appears as a custom template in the Templates tab in the console.
Limitations: Templates are Machine Type and Region-specific. Therefore, if you create a P5000 Windows template in AMS1, that template can only be used to create more P5000 Windows VMs in the Amsterdam data center.
