The other problem this works around is that, even if providers offer
similar images under the same names or via the same image property
metadata, there's no guarantee that what's on the images is
identical (same versions of the same set of packages preinstalled
with the same initial configurations, same root filesystem
formatting and parameters, et cetera). I too just upload identical
images to different providers, even for my personal use, so that I
have some increased assurance of parity for the instances I boot
