Minimal ready-to-use CentOS Stream 8 Gold Image

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

This is a minimal ready-to-use CentOS Stream 8 Gold Image that is automatically updated at launch with latest security patches making sure you are always running the most secure version available.

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 an SSH Server and allow users to login.

Main highlights:

  • Azure Linux Agent and cloud-init are included.
  • Accelerated Networking is supported.
  • Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) is enabled.
  • Automatically updated at launch with latest patches.

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

Built using CentOS Stream 8 'Minimal Install' group of packages and a single 30 GiB OS disk. Both root partition and the corresponding filesystem are automatically extended during boot if the selected disk size is bigger than the default one.
