Moving current ProfitBricks Datacenter into another Datacenter

I have a staging Datacenter and would like to migrate backup, then restore some of my volumes into another Datacenter. How would I do that?

The easiest way to migrate an existing Datacenter, or to replicate a virtual machine within ProfitBricks is by using the Snapshot feature. This will allow you to clone a server, and create as many virtual machines as you want using that Snapshot.

If you plan on building a core image, that you will re-use in the future to create multiple similar configurations, I would strongly recommend you to create the smallest possible storage, since you can adjust storage on each machine according to your needs. The size of your snapshot will not restrict you to provision larger volumes.
