When you start Cloud Shell in a browser, Cloud Shell automatically assigns you a Linux VM that is pre-installed with various cloud management tools and system tools. The VM is provided free of charge. The management tools include Alibaba Cloud CLI and Terraform, and the system tools include SSH, VIM, and jq. For more information, see What is Cloud Shell?
