How does the Snapshot work?

The snapshot, as its name suggests, is a "photo" of your VPS exactly as it was at one specific moment.

Imagine that you have to perform a potentially difficult software update on your server.
Before you begin, create a snapshot: if the operation fails, you can use it as a restore point to bring back your configuration to a functional state as quickly as possible.
