CentOS 7 GenericCloud Test image

We’ve been building CentOS 7 cloud images for a while now, but today CentOS released their own ‘Generic Cloud’ image that they intend to use as the base for all their cloud variants.

This is very much a test image and is to be used for validation purposes only, but we’ve uploaded it to the image testing area on Brightbox Cloud to help people test it out. To use it simply select img-c3f00 as the image when you create a new server.

Please feedback your findings to the CentOS developers list and help improve the CentOS cloud experience for all.
