RightScale Inc., the leader in cloud computing management, continues to offer publicly available base AMIs that contain everything you need to build a solid server on Amazon EC2. The 32-bit version is specifically designed for m1.small instances. A 64-bit version is also available for other instance types.

RightImages™ are designed to give you exactly what you need to build a stable Amazon EC2 server, but also give you the control and flexibility to customize each image depending on your machine's requirements. You can use the RightImage as is, customize it using our preconfigured RightScripts™ or develop your own custom scripts. This RightImage AMI has a CentOS 5.2 base install, EC2 tools, standard networking, and Internet tools.

RightImages include:
  • Clean base image that has never been booted
  • Image that automatically uses our build script
  • Built-in support for RightScale™ features and service
  • Core tools and utilities that make it easy to install additional software
  • Public build script allowing you to reproduce or modify our RightImage
