CentOS is running smoothly on my EC2. I totally recommend.
I works like expected and I can pretty do much every thing that I do on my local CentOS installation.

Great Minimal CentOS 7 AMI

  • January 21, 2015

CentOS is a great operating system. This AMI launches rapidly, and gives you a stable, minimalist CentOS 7 build from which to build whatever project you have in mind. I'll certainly use this for future projects.

64bit only is not a functional spec at this time

  • January 12, 2015
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

The new CentOS 7 is attempting to join Red Hat Enterprise in going strictly 64bit with no 32bit binary support. This has numerous issues with backward compatibility and with many current applications. For instance wine is not functional in such an environemtn because too much software is still 32bit

Nice overall

This AMI works very well and I was able to smoothly install CPanel on it
The only issue was that I had to expand the volume, and I couldn't make the filesystem to grow simply using resize2fs
I had to follow instructions here:

Other than that, system is running smoothly.

Amazing version

As always, CentOS is the best choice for a secure, fast, stable and lightweight distro for a server linux based.
Compliant with legacy unix rules and structure, but, in the same time, easy to administer.
IMHO… the best.

Upgrade need quite some learning curve

  • November 08, 2014
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

Upgrade between CentOS 6 to 7 is quite some different than 5 to 6 or even 4 to 5. CentOS 7 has some fundamental changes that require you to re-establish your admin routine.
Some of the big changes include but not limited to:
1. systemd replacing System V Init
2. MariaDB replacing MySQL
3. firewalld replacing iptables ip6tables
4. Kernel 3.1
5. XFS supported by default instead of ext4
6 Docker container support

Unless you have been following Fedora closely, you may have quite some learning curve before get use to admin CentOS 7.

Also, EPEL repository is still quite empty. So, for production, I would recommend to stay with 6.5 for a little longer.


Exactly what you want

Seemed harder to find than it should have been, but exactly what your looking for in most cases. Just the clean minimal official CentOS 7.

Simple, Easy, Straight forward CentOS 7 AMI

  • October 22, 2014
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

If you need basic CentOS 7 image without any additional services you came to the right place.
From here, anyone can customize his system to his needs. So you know what system you are running based on a trusted AMI from the folks at CentOS.

It's CentOS 7

  • October 22, 2014

There's not much to say here, other than it's CentOS 7, and if that's what you want, this is for you.

I was waiting for the CentOS folks to release this, so I very psyched when it came out. Thanks to the CentOS folks for supporting us here at AWS!
