CentOS 7 (x86_64) - with Updates HVM

This is the Official CentOS 7 x86_64 HVM image that has been built with a minimal profile, suiteable for use in HVM instance types only. The image contains just enough packages to run within AWS, bring up an SSH Server and allow users to login. Please note that this is the default CentOS-7 image that we recommend everyone uses. It contains packages that are updated at points in time to include critical security updates.

    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.
    • Starting with CentOS-7 we now include cloud-init support in all CentOS AMI's, the default cloud user is setup to be 'centos'. Once the machine is running, you will be able to login as this user and use sudo to run privileged commands. You can override this default username by using instance user data at time of instantiation.
    • 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.
