A vanilla Centos image ready and waiting for me to add my stuff to it. Worked right out of the box. Thanks!

Easy to install and fully operative. It is a very basic configuration installation, you need to install apache and other components.

CentOS 6, but having problems

  • By Jeff Dearmin

- CentOS 6; rock solid. Usually use Amazon's Linux, but needed a GUI for testing 389/Openldap. XFCE4 installs and works well.
- Can't grow root volume beyond 8GB. If I specify a larger volume when installing the instance, the storage is allocated, but I still get a 8 GB root file system. If I grow the volume using fdisk/resize2fs, system won't boot. Just need about 20GB, and didn't want to allocate a separate volume.

Good for Web Server Deployment

OS is loaded with regular Centos 6.0 64 bit base OS. Pairing it with minimal instance type resource can still run a decent Web server hosting 2 to 3 web programs. Must have at least 1.0 GB memory or higher if planning to run ruby and svn.

Standard CentOS distro

  • By Walter Stroebel

Pro: login with the root account instead of forcing a useless additional step with some unknown user that has root rights anyway
Con: must reboot once to get rid of selinux

For the rest a nice, clean image which can quickly be completed to perform your specific task(s) using a deployment tool like Ansible or Puppet.

I have a high personal confidence in this image being untainted by Trojan horses or other back doors as the maker is extremely well known and respected in the community as well as being once of the most used distributions.

Poor server

  • By Vipan Kumar

Your support and services are of poor quality

1. Your system is so much complex to handle

2. Support team does not support software issues.You have given software addons to install but not providing support.

3. I waited 15-20 min for a phone call support .

4. Your technical staff does not know basic tweaks

5. Overall bad experience

First ever AMI I used on AWS, used with free tier to test out few thing.

I'm just a newbie for server end, so do not have any valuable inputs :)
