6. Timezones

A cloud server's hardware clock is set to a specific timezone. Some operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows, rely on the hardware clock being in local time. Others, such as Linux, use a default setting of a hardware clock in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). The server's timezone setting can be adjusted to a local time if required by the operating system.

List timezones

Returns a list of available timezones. Timezones are used to set the hardware clock for servers.

The default server timezone is UTC unless configured to one of the timezone identifiers returned by this operation.
