Restrictions on Markedtplace VMs makes them essentially useless

  • By Brian McKendrick
  • on 04/09/2019

The volumes booted from the AMI base image are locked to the instance they are deployed to. Limits the CentOS AMI to specific use-cases - none of them mine.

The most frustrating part is that soooo many "community" AMIs are based on these base AMIs. The results ? Many of the 'community' AMIs are actually a derivative of this marketplace AMI - requiring licensing and limited in everyway as the CentOS AMI. And you typically don't discover this until you have configured, provisioned and launched you're instance ( the instance launch fails ).

Thanks for nothing.

8GB root is ridiculous

Please fix this absurd and short-sighted aspect of this image. Root partition should be the size of the root volume, full stop.

Root volume unexpandable

I was a bad experience using this IAM. I needed a root volume larger than 8 GB. Even though I changed the size at the time of instance creation, it didn't workout. I tried to expand the volume later and that did not work too. later I found in online forums that the root volume is not expandable because of the way IAM was created. It wasted lot of my time and it was a horrible experience. If the root volume doesn't expand it must made clear instead of wasting customers valuable time and money.

In frustration, I wanted to take my business elsewhere but things worked out using another IAM.

Please make sure next time for the IAMs the behavious and specifications are mentoned.


Don't Use This AMI

This AMI can not be resized. As with the other reviews this NEEDS to be addressed. What can you do with a 8GB drive?
