Note According to the end-of-life announcement for CoreOS Container Linux from the Fedora CoreOS community, updates are no longer provided for CoreOS Container Linux as of May 26, 2020. In view of this, Alibaba Cloud makes the following announcements:
  • As of May 26, 2020, Alibaba Cloud no longer provides technical support for ECS instances that use the CoreOS Container Linux operating system. However, you can still use existing ECS instances that run this operating system.
  • You can still obtain CoreOS Container Linux images from Alibaba Cloud before September 30, 2020. After September 30, 2020, you will be unable to use CoreOS Container Linux public images provided by Alibaba Cloud to create new ECS instances.
  • As of May 26, 2020, you can still use the CoreOS Container Linux operating system that has already been installed. However, no security patches are available because the operating system has reached its end of life. For security concerns, Alibaba Cloud recommends that you do not use CoreOS Container Linux images any longer.
  • The Fedora CoreOS community recommends that you use Fedora CoreOS as a replacement of CoreOS Container Linux. Alibaba Cloud will also bring Fedora CoreOS public images online soon.
