Cloudscraper makes a snapshot of your server, then converts all image blocks to virtual image, adjusting it "on-the-fly".
These adjustments ensure the server image to run in the cloud.
Finally, Cloudscraper uploads the image directly into your cloud account and creates a new cloud server from it.

Instance Creation

As a result of migration process, Cloudscraper creates VM instance in the cloud.

The VM instance is based on image containing full replica of your server.

Data Upload

Image of your replicated server is contained inside the cloud storage.

Cloudscraper uploads the image there when replica is created.


An image replica is captured by Cloudscraper engine that is installed on the running system.


Image replica is created only after Cloudscraper checked the migration is available: server has enough disk space to store replica images, and cloud is ready to recieve it.


Cloudscraper engine is configured via either wizard-style user interface, or Web Panel.
The configuration options are dependent on target cloud. Often they include cloud API access keys, network settings, intermediate cloud storage, local storage options. When configuration is complete, parameters are saved into configuration file.
