arrive soon as they were recently submitted for review by the AWS
“Compared to openSUSE Leap 42.2 we were in much better shape
releasing two of three images on release date (GCE and Azure) and
even the delayed image was released much closer to release date
than the 42.2 release,” Robert Schweikert wrote on Google
End users can choose the cloud service provider that best fits
their usage model.
There are a couple of known things not working at the moment like
the “gcloud” command in the GCE image and the automatic hostname
setting in the GCE image,
Both will be worked on as time permits, Schweikert wrote.
Cloud images of openSUSE have been available in for years and
users can run Docker containers in a Virtual Machine with
openSUSE’s cloud image; this has been tested with SUSE Linux
Enterprise Server 12, which shares a common core with openSUSE
Since releasing openSUSE Leap 42.2 in the AWS Marketplace, around
mid January, roughly 220 subscribers are running openSUSE Leap.
AWS customers have an opportunity to use openSUSE’s community
software on AWS without any hourly-software instance charge.
