Flawless Performace

CentOS 7 flows like a calm, gentle and crystal-clear stream on a star-filled cloudless night.

Keep in mind though that SELinux is enabled by default. Depending on your need, you may need to either disable it or set it to permissive.

However, this is NOT recommended. Learn how to use SELinux properly with its Mandatory Access Control; it is a life-saver.

Three hearty cheers to the CentOS (upstream and downstream) and AWS team.

Hip, Hooray! Hip, Hooray!! Hip, Hooray!!!


almost flawless

/etc/cloud/cloud.cfg should come with set_hostname and update_hostname disabled by default, or configured in such a way that they don't override the hostname settings done in the OS.
I used all the well-known ways, but the cloud script would always override them and use the ip-<IP> name instead.
This caused some unnecessary problems. Other than that, all OK.
Thanks for providing an AWS-optimized CentOS 7 image.

Excellent product that works out of the box

This distribution of Centos 7 worked like a dream out of the box. No hassles. No problems. Easy to understand and nothing that is not needed. It is a basic "slim" install but it is easy to install additional services if required.

Highly recommended - the price is right and the product works right out of the box.

The best Centos7 image I have ever installed

This was definitely at least 2 versions greater than Centos5 and may even have been greater than Centos6. If you intend to install Centos7 this is without a doubt one of your options.

A great stable and up-to-date platform on which to develop applications and deliver services. Great performance too, and it's 100% free.

Perfect operative system for Amazon Web Services and perfect AMI creation. Everything works perfectly and is THE real CentOS.

I had to deploy a new product and the requirement was for Centos 7. I used the image from Centos - it deployed with no issues. The pre-requisites for the product (Java 8 and Jetty) also deployed without issue and we are currently running a POC for a customer using the ami.

It installed and worked just as I expected. An easy install. Now I'm configuring it for my own needs.
