We’ve just deployed some new imaging code to BigV; as a result, creating new VMs and reimaging existing ones is going a bit faster than previously. Creating new Wheezy VMs is currently ~2 minutes from start to finish, by my count.
I’ll be interested to hear if you notice (or don’t, of course!) Feedback on where it stands – fast enough, faster than expected or staggeringly slow – relative to your expectations would also be welcome.
If you experience any problems with imaging, then it’s probably the new code’s fault, so do get in touch via the usual support mechanisms
