My Virtual Machines

Virtual Machines can be viewed from My Data and Virtual Machines pages in the Web Console. The virtual machines listed in My Data are the VMs that you own. From My Data, you can access the summary page of each virtual machine and perform many operations, such as cloning, creating snapshots, and restoring files.
