Some linux/rhce ability required

I very much enjoy the familiar environment, thoughtfully constructed, no unpleasant surprises.

Full security is enabled by default. To connect anything useful you will need to open up ports on the firewall (ie iptables skill), also consider what level of selinux you require. Acl skills probably a good idea also.

New AWS users you can use tcpdump to confirm packets are getting through your corporate firewall and arriving on the instance, before the firewall has a chance to filter them out.

Just started to move from rack servers to Amazon and am surprised how easy and simple it is. CentOS runs as good as it always has. After a few more final tests all my servers will be migrated to Amazon.

Perfect minimal CentOS VM

A reliable CentOS VM has been missing from the AWS ecosystem for a long time. This AMI fills the gap. It's minimal, clean, and text-book vanilla. Absolutely perfect for my needs.

Stable and free

CentOS is a stable and free solution for enterprise use. It has not the latest software versions, but there are many good third-party repositories. After 8 years of experience with CentOS is still my first choice.

Excellent product

I needed to run some software which is only certified for Redhat Enterprise Linux. It runs perfectly on this AMI without any problems.

The AMI comes configured with minimal extras which was perfect as it saved me from having to spend any time removing things that I didn't need for my use case.

This is an excellent AMI and I am very happy with it.

I am using CentOS since a couple of years. And as expected, the Images for the the EC2 instance works seamlessly!

Best CentOS AMI

I am a fan of CentOS and was very happy when this AMI became available. THe setup was simple, and has been very stable.

I would strongly recommend this AMI for anyone who likes the RedHat family of Linux but does not need to run RHEL.

Nice and bare bones

This one is for the people who know linux. Not much coming out of the box. I used it for node.js server, and it is nice not having all sorts of stuff running that I will never use.

My notes for installing it as a node.js server:
