Rocky Linux is an open-source enterprise operating system designed to be 100% bug-for-bug compatible with CentOS and Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

This is a minimal ready-to-use Rocky Linux 8.7 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 an SSH Server and allow users to login.

Main highlights:

  • 100% bug-for-bug RHEL and CentOS compatible.
  • Azure Linux Agent and cloud-init are included.
  • Accelerated Networking is supported.
  • Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) is enabled.
  • All security updates available at the release date are included.

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 Rocky Linux 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.
