CentOS Stream 9

CentOS Stream 9

Minimal CentOS Stream 9 Gold Image. All security updates available at release date are included.

CentOS Stream is a Linux distro where open source community members can develop, test, and contribute to a continuously delivered distribution upstream for Red Hat Enterprise Linux — all in tandem with Red Hat developers.

This is a minimal ready-to-use CentOS Stream 9 Gold Image, mainly used as a common base system on top of which other appliances could be built and tested. It contains just enough packages to run within Azure, bring up a SSH Server and allow users to login.

Azure Linux Agent, cloud-init, as well as the CentOS 9 Stream security updates available at the release date are included.

Root login is disabled and only the user account specified at launch time (or the default cloud-user) is allowed to connect, preferably using ssh public key authentication.

Built using CentOS 9 Stream 'Minimal Install' group of packages and a single 30 GiB OS disk. Both root partition and the corresponding filesystem are automatically extended if the selected disk size is bigger than the default one. OS disk is partitoned using GPT (GUID Partition Table) instead of MBR (Master Boot Record). This allows usage of OS disks bigger than 2 TiB in size.

This image comes with SELinux enabled.

Accelerated Networking is supported as well.
