Now import is 3x faster and export is 2x faster thanks to a comprehensive optimization. Furthermore, instances and volumes can now be exported without stopping virtual machines.
We also have fixed some bugs that might occur during import/export and made the following changes to improve these operations:
- You can specify a name for the imported template.
- Exported files are saved in a separate directory in the selected bucket in the object storage. The directory name consists of a prefix you specify and an export task ID.
- In import/export API methods, we have removed obsolete response elements and changed IDs of some tasks. For more information about the response format, see the documentation.
