CentOS 8 AMI availability in AWS

Post by akrueger » 2019/10/03 19:51:07

Is there a date on when an official CentOS 8 AMI will be available in AWS please? We're keen to upgrade, but I'm hesitant to use a third-party image due to security reasons.
I've looked at https://wiki.centos.org/Cloud/AWS and the AWS marketplace and cannot find anything.

I have been wondering the same thing.
Maybe they have bugs they want to fix first...
Where is the best place to prod the developers with this question?

I am fairly sure there is a bugs.centos.org bug ticket for this already.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
CentOS 5 has been EOL for nearly 3 years and should no longer be used for anything!

You can upload your own vm image to AWS - last did this a few years ago & I think I used a qemu image, possibly converted via virt-image (for something like that). See https://aws.amazon.com/ec2/vm-import/
Also I think the Cloud SIG provides qcow images already.

EDIT:
Just checked. Uploaded "raw" image, converted via qemu-img command.
