Publish layered images

Jan 11, 2018

The App Layering software lets you publish Layered Images as disks compatible with your platform. You can use a Layered Image to provision servers, as you would with any other image.

About Layered Images

Layered Images are bootable images composited from an OS Layer, a Platform Layer, and any number of App Layers.

Creating and updating Layered Images

The way you specify which layers to include in a Layered Image is by saving the combination of layers you want for a particular group of users in an Image Template. You then use this template to publish a Layered Image to your chosen platform.

When you need to update the Layered Image, you simply edit the Image Template to add or remove layer assignments, and publish a new version of the image.
