Summary

CentOS on cloud is a community-supported distribution derived from sources freely provided to the public by Red Hat for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). As such, CentOS Linux aims to be functionally compatible with RHEL. The CentOS Project mainly changes packages to remove upstream vendor branding and artwork. CentOS Linux is no-cost and free to redistribute. Each CentOS version is maintained for up to 10 years (by means of security updates — the duration of the support interval by Red Hat has varied over time with respect to Sources released). A new CentOS version is released approximately every 2 years and each CentOS version is periodically updated (roughly every 6 months) to support newer hardware. This results in a secure, low-maintenance, reliable, predictable and reproducible Linux environment.

CloudMint Provide Enterprise Ready CentOS 6.9 on all public cloud (AWS marketplace, Azure and Google Cloud Platform).

Deploy CentOS 6.9 securely on cloud i.e. Azure marketplace and GCP.

Highlights

  • Server performance has improved in many areas : Some operations in Identity Management run much faster now. For example, this enhancement enables better scalability in large deployments exceeding 50,000 users and hosts.
  • Enhanced IdM topology management : Information about the Identity Management (IdM) topology is now maintained at a central location in the shared tree. As a result, you can now manage the topology from any IdM server using the command line or the web UI.
  • Simplified replica installation : Installing a replica no longer requires you to log in to the initial server, use the Directory Manager (DM) credentials and copy the replica information file from the initial server to the replica.
  • New variable for disabling colored output for systemd : This update introduces the SYSTEMD_COLORS environment variable for systemd, which enables turning on or off systemd color output. SYSTEMD_COLORS should be set to a valid boolean value.
  • New systemd option: RandomizedDelaySec : This update introduces the RandomizedDelaySec option for systemd timers, which schedules an event to occur later by a random number of seconds.
