The time to create a new cloud server is dependent on the image used (operating system, applications, etc.), the number of hard drives and the additional services. If you have requested a lot of resources, the activation will take longer.
It typically takes 1 to 2 hours to create a single virtual server with just the basic resources. A Linux server usually takes one hour, while a Windows machine can take up to two hours.
The virtual server can be used immediately after creation, including all associated services that are delivered automatically.
Important note for manual delivery of several services:
Remote Desktop Services and Microsoft Office licences are delivered manually within eight working hours after delivery of the server.
SharePoint installations are carried out in consultation with the customer.
