A little bit of cleanup

Özgür Bal City Cloud Leave a Comment

Our App Center is getting a bit crowded, with all kind of images to choose from. As time passes, old operating systems give way to newer versions with more features, fixes and performance.

We have decided to get the broom out and remove some old ones.

Keep reading to know which are the unfortunate ones.

So long…

So long, so long, and thanks for all the fish. The images we removed from the listing are old versions of popular operating systems, that have been already superseded by newer and better ones.

Here is the current line up of casualties:

  • GNU/Linux CentOS 5.4
  • GNU/Linux CentOS 5.5
  • GNU/Linux Debian 5.02
  • GNU/Linux Debian 5.0.6 64-bit
  • GNU/Linux Fedora Core 13 64-bit
  • GNU/Linux Red Hat Enterprise 5.5 64-bit

As of now, you can no longer provision servers with the aforementioned images.

But, what if?

What if, for some reason, you require one of the deleted images?

Do not despair, since we didn’t actually delete them. We just disabled them for listing. So, if you want them again just give us a call or send us an email and we’ll enable them back just for you.

Also important, current images created from those images are independent from the templates, so nothing will happen to them.

We will of course, continue adding new images and upgrading versions as we continue into the rest of the year.
