This topic describes how to download and install the Cloud Storage Gateway (CSG) image.
- When you deploy a CSG instance on Alibaba Cloud, you do not need to download the image. The image is automatically installed after the CSG instance is created.
- When you deploy a CSG instance in an on-premises data center, you must download the CSG image from the CSG console and install the image on your virtual machine. Currently, the OVA, VHD, and QCOW2 image formats are supported. Choose an image according to your virtual machine.
