End-of-life for 32-bit system images

Jun 15, 2016  - written by  in Cloud

We have reduced the number of available system images for creation on our Cloud platform today, as previously announced.

The following images will no longer be available for use in the creation of new servers (EOL):

  • ArchLinux 32 bits
  • ArchLinux 64 bits
  • Centos 5 32 bits
  • CentOS 5 64 bits
  • Centos 6 32 bits
  • Debian 6 32 bits
  • Debian 6 64 bits
  • Debian 7 32 bits
  • Fedora 17 32 bits
  • Fedora 17 64 bits
  • OpenSUSE 12.2 32 bits
  • OpenSUSE 12.2 64 bits
  • Ubuntu 10.04 32 bits
  • Ubuntu 10.04 64 bits
  • Ubuntu 12.04 32 bits
  • Ubuntu 14.04 32 bits

Currently existing servers using these images will not be impacted and will continue to function normally. You may also create new servers from snapshots and from existing disks. We do recommend keeping your system updated for security reasons.

Supported images at creation are:

  • Debian 8 64 bits (HVM)
  • Debian 7 64 bits (HVM)
  • Debian 7 64 bits
  • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64 bits (HVM)
  • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 bits (HVM)
  • Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 bits
  • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64 bits
  • CentOS 7 64 bits (HVM)
  • CentOS 6 64 bits (HVM)
  • CentOS 6 64 bits
  • FreeBSD 10.3 64 bits (UFS)
  • FreeBSD 10.3 64 bits (ZFS)

Starting today, all official images use the 64-bit architecture. We recommend opting for our HVM platform (images with the “HVM” suffix), on which you may also create your own images and use custom kernels.
