CentOS successor: Google Cloud relies on Rocky Linux

Rocky Linux is now available on Google Cloud. The Linux distribution is a CentOS successor that should remain 100 percent compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux. CentOS itself is history in its current form, Red Hat has replaced it with the Fedora-based Stream.

The developers have adapted Rocky Linux for the Google Cloud for the provider’s platform. Among other things, the virtual machines will receive an adapted kernel and should be optimized for the network infrastructure of the Google Cloud. Responsible for this is CIQ, which offers commercial support for Rocky Linux and is a sponsor of the distribution.

Nevertheless, Google wants to deliver all regular updates, kernel updates and bug fixes for the customized images. In addition to this license and support, a community edition is also available. In the future, the provider wants to offer every major release of Rocky Linux as a specially adapted version. The distribution can be used with all x86 instances and soon with the ARM systems. All information can be found in the Google Cloud Blog.
