“This is a modified version of open-source software, with additional charges applicable for professional support, updates, and maintenance services.
Built on the foundation of the official CentOS 7.9.2009 release, this image includes a minimal set of installation packages and essential AWS software components, enabling smooth integration into the AWS infrastructure. These components consist of the AWS CLI, Elastic Network Adapter, and NVMe drivers.
Other notable features of this image include key-based authentication using the ‘centos’ username, cloud-init functionality, and the default activation of SELinux. For heightened security, root login is deactivated, and the root disk can dynamically adjust its size based on the instance volume configuration. The image undergoes periodic updates to incorporate critical security enhancements.”
