Using VK Cloud Servers, a Linux virtual machine (VM) will be created in the VK Cloud personal account and connected to it.
A quick start will help you get started with the service and get acquainted with its capabilities.
After going through all the steps of a quick start, you will:
- Create a new virtual machine (VM).
- Connect to the created VM via SSH.
The account balance should be positive, and quotas should be enough to create the target configuration of the virtual machine.
Go to personal account VK Cloud.
Go to Cloud Computing → Virtual machines.
Click the Create instance or Add button.
In the field Operating system choose
Click the Next step button.
In the field Network choose
External network (ext-net).
An external IP address will be automatically assigned to the virtual machine on the external network.
In the field Virtual machine key choose
Create a new key.
In the field Firewall settings choose
Only ssh is allowed.
Click the Next step and Create instance buttons.
- Save the suggested key file
- Wait until the virtual machine creation process is completed and the page of the new VM based on Ubuntu 22.04 opens.
After the VM is successfully created, wait at least 10-15 minutes. During this period, the operating system is deployed to the VM disk, and system tools are also working to configure the virtual machine in accordance with the specified parameters.
You can connect to a Linux-based virtual machine created from an Ubuntu image via SSH.
Run the command in the terminal:
ssh -i <the path to the key> ubuntu@<external IP address of the virtual machine>
ssh -i ubuntu-key.pem firstname.lastname@example.org
The external IP address of the VM can be viewed in VK Cloud personal account to Cloud Computing → Virtual machines.
The first time you connect to the VM, you will be asked to confirm the connection to a previously unknown host:
1The authenticity of host '188.8.131.52 (184.108.40.206)' can't be established. 2ECDSA key fingerprint is SHA256:aYZIWs9N6KRtfFOuic6eoWcluhSp6+jha/DSBgd9McI. 3Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?
yes in the terminal and press Enter.
A running VM consumes computing resources. If you don't need it anymore:
