What is the meaning of teminating machine in openstack docs?


We say ephemeral image is a VM image that does not save changes made to its volumes and reverts them to their original state after the instance is terminated.Ok, Now I wanna know what is the meaning of terminate in OpenStack dictionary? shutdown or restart a vm means terminate it or Deleting means terminate? If shutdown machine means terminate, It is difficult for me to understand what happen for my instance, I boot my machine from ephemeral image and make some changes for example I copy a file in Drive C or I install IIS and … so after shutdown machine, all the changes will purge? If yes, what should I do for having the changes? I know I have problem in understanding base concept, may be thankful if guide me.


Thanks all
