The CentOS Atomic SIG has released an updated version of CentOS Atomic Host (7.1804), a lean operating system designed to run Linux containers, built from standard CentOS 7 RPMs, and tracking the component versions included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host.
This release, which is based on the RHEL 7.5 source code, now ships without any baked-in Kubernetes rpms, which makes it simpler for users to layer their preferred Kubernetes or OpenShift packages onto the host.
CentOS Atomic Host includes these core component versions:
CentOS Atomic Host is available as a VirtualBox or libvirt-formatted Vagrant box, or as an installable ISO, qcow2 or Amazon Machine image. For links to media, see the CentOS wiki.
If you’re running a previous version of CentOS Atomic Host, you can upgrade to the current image by running the following command:
The CentOS Atomic Host image follows the upstream Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic Host cadence. After sources are released, they’re rebuilt and included in new images. After the images are tested by the SIG and deemed ready, we announce them.
You’ll often find us in #atomic and/or #centos-devel if you have questions. You can also join the atomic-devel mailing list if you’d like to discuss the direction of Project Atomic, its components, or have other questions.
If you run into any problems with the images or components, feel free to ask on the centos-devel mailing list.
