Elastic Compute Service:Overview

Last Updated:Jan 17, 2024

Public images are provided by Alibaba Cloud and fully licensed to provide a secure and stable operating environment for applications that are deployed on Elastic Compute Service (ECS) instances. This topic describes the types of public image: Alibaba Cloud Linux images, third-party images, and open-source images.

Types of public image

The following table describes the types of public image provided by Alibaba Cloud. You can use public images to create ECS instances free of charge, except Windows Server, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server public images. For more information, see the "Image prices" section of the Image overview topic.

Type of public image

Description

Technical support

Alibaba Cloud Linux images

Alibaba Cloud Linux images are custom, proprietary operating system images provided by Alibaba Cloud for ECS instances. Alibaba Cloud Linux images are thoroughly tested to ensure their security, stability, and normal startup and operation.

Alibaba Cloud provides technical support to help resolve the issues that you may encounter when you use Alibaba Cloud Linux images.

Third-party images and open-source images

Third-party and open-source images are thoroughly tested and released by Alibaba Cloud to ensure their security, stability, and normal startup and operation. The following third-party public images are available:

  • Windows: Windows Server

  • Linux: Anolis OS, Ubuntu, CentOS, CentOS Stream, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Debian, openSUSE, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, FreeBSD, CoreOS, Fedora CoreOS, Fedora, Rocky Linux, and AlmaLinux

  • For open-source public images, contact the corresponding open-source communities for technical support. Alibaba Cloud also provides technical assistance to help identify issues with the images.

  • For commercial images, Alibaba Cloud offers licenses and works with the corresponding operating system vendors to provide technical support.

Note
  • The preceding information, which is described in the Technical support column, is valid only before the end of life (EOL) of images. For information about how to obtain technical support after the EOL of an image, see Maintenance support for operating systems.

  • Alibaba Cloud provides release notes for public images to introduce new features and security patches of operating systems. For more information, see Release notes. Alibaba Cloud also synchronizes new features and security patches from open source communities and operating system vendors to Alibaba Open Source Image Site. You can obtain new features and install security patches based on your business requirements.

  • Alibaba Cloud helps you ensure cloud security. Alibaba Cloud ensures the security of the cloud platform, including the security of the hardware, software, and network. You are responsible for not introducing security risks to your ECS instances. You must properly manage operating systems, such as installing updates and security patches, installing secure applications and tools on the instances, and configuring security groups that Alibaba Cloud provides. For more information, see Best security practices.

Alibaba Cloud Linux supports multiple instance types, including ECS bare metal instance types. By default, Alibaba Cloud Linux is equipped with Alibaba Cloud CLI and other software packages to facilitate your use. If you want to change from other Linux distributions to Alibaba Cloud Linux images, create instances that use Alibaba Cloud Linux images or replace the operating systems (system disks) of existing instances. For more information, see What is Alibaba Cloud Linux?.

Third-party images and open-source images

Alibaba Cloud releases and updates third-party or open-source public images on a regular basis. For more information, see Release notes for 2023. Alternatively, you can select a region in the ECS console and view all the public images available in that region on the Public Images tab. For more information, see Find an image.

      Note
      • The CentOS project announced the end of life (EOL) for CentOS Linux. CentOS Linux public images provided by Alibaba Cloud are derived from the repositories provided by the CentOS project. When CentOS Linux reaches its EOL, Alibaba Cloud stops providing support for CentOS Linux. For more information, see Options for dealing with CentOS Linux end of life.

      • CentOS 6 and CentOS 8 have reached their EOL. In accordance with Linux community rules, all content has been removed from the CentOS 6 and CentOS 8 repository addresses. If you want to continue to use specific installation packages of CentOS 6 and CentOS 8 during the transition period, you must change CentOS 6 and CentOS 8 repository addresses. For more information, see Change the CentOS 6 source address and Change CentOS 8 repository addresses.

      • To use a 32-bit operating system, select an instance type that has 4 GiB or less of memory. For more information, see Select an image.

      Note

      The Fedora CoreOS community announced that updates are no longer provided for CoreOS Container Linux as of May 26, 2020. In light of this, Alibaba Cloud issued 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 continue to use existing ECS instances that run the operating system.

      • As of September 30, 2020, you can no longer use CoreOS Container Linux public images that are provided by Alibaba Cloud to create ECS instances.

      • As of May 26, 2020, instances that already run CoreOS Container Linux can continue to use the operating system. However, no security patches are available because the operating system reached its end of life. For security concerns, we recommend that you no longer use CoreOS Container Linux images.

      • Alibaba Cloud has released Fedora CoreOS public images. The Fedora CoreOS community recommends that you use Fedora CoreOS in place of CoreOS Container Linux.

      When you use these images, take note of the following items:

      • When you create an instance or replace the system disk of an instance, you can use only a key pair as logon credentials. You can use only the key pair that you initially configured for your instance to log on to the instance. You cannot change or unbind the key pair.

      • If you have created an instance or replaced the system disk of an instance, you cannot reset the password of the instance.
