Standard images are images that are supplied by Rackspace and supported for
your Rackspace Cloud account's type and service level. The distinction
between standard and non-standard images is described in detail in the article Rackspace standard and non-standard images.
The set of standard images isn't the same for all Rackspace Cloud accounts. The standard images for an account differ based on the account's support level (Managed Infrastructure or Managed Cloud service level) and whether or not the account uses RackConnect.
The following filters in the Cloud Control Panel, Cloud Servers API, and Cloud Images API enable you to see which images are standard images for your account.
Cloud Control Panel: When you're building a server in the Cloud Control Panel, select the Rackspace tab when
choosing the base image to list only standard images.
For information on the support implications of the differences between standard and non-standard images, see Rackspace standard and non-standard images.
