Power Off

If you are no longer using a VM or Bare Metal Server, but wish to retain the device and all of its data and settings for future use, use the Power Off function. This reduces the cost for that device when you do not need it, but reserves it for quick implementation when you do. You will still be charged for the device at a reduced rate while it is powered off.

Alternately, when you are ready to begin using a powered off VM or Bare Metal Server again, you may perform virtually the same steps to power it back on.

To power on/off a device:

  1. Sign in to the Client Portal.
  2. Open the Manage mega menu.
  3. Click Device Listing under the Combined Functions heading.
  4. Locate the Device you wish to power off in the listing, using a Filter if necessary.
  5. Right-click on the Device you wish to power off and click Power Off or Power On in the menu, depending on the current state of the Device.
  6. Verify your wish to power off/on the Device by clicking Power Off/On in the confirmation screen.


This action can be performed by clicking the Available Actions icon as well.
