Machines are high-performing computing for scaling AI applications.
Paperspace includes several operating systems (OS) options that you can use as a template to provision compute machines. These OS templates are managed by the Paperspace team. You can also create user-managed Custom Templates.
Custom templates capture a machine at a specific state in time, making it possible to deploy new machines from this template.
A custom template can be created from an existing machine. The custom template contains the entire disk image of the original machine. Once a template has been successfully created, it appears as a custom template in the Templates tab in the console.
Templates are region-specific. You can only use Custom Templates from within the same datacenter region where the template was originally created.
