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.

It's CentOS 7

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!

Simple, Easy, Straight forward CentOS 7 AMI

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.

This is a very interesting way to start CentOS server in two minutes.

I am able to install al software I need for test purpose and CentOS with Amazon infrastructure evaluation.

Thank you

Free Clone of RHEL

  • October 01, 2012
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
CentOS is literally a free version of RHEL. The community takes RHEL and strips it, and then releases it.
What do you dislike?
It is always a month or two behind major RHEL releases, and not all functionality can be clone (such as the virtualization)
Recommendations to others considering the product:
CentOS is right for you if your wallet is closed and you need a server up and running ASAP. It has the stability and features of RHEL and the community support behind it.
