CentOS 6 (x86_64) - with Updates HVM

This is the Official CentOS 6 x86_64 HVM image that has been built with a minimal profile. The image contains just enough packages to run within AWS, bring up an SSH Server and allow users to login. If you intend to run CentOS-6/x86_64 images, this one is recommended. CentOS.org intends to keep these images updated based on security fixes and newer point releases.

    Highlights

    • All official CentOS Linux images are built with SELINUX set to enforcing mode. However, we test the images with both Selinux enabled as well as permissive.
    • This image is built to allow remote ssh login only as 'root' user with the key specified at instance launch time.
    • We recommend reviewing the CentOS on AWS Cloud wiki page at http://wiki.centos.org/Cloud/AWS for details on how these images are built, how you might be able to extend and add functionality to these images as well as Getting Started guides.
