Thread: Outdated / Inaccurate information on Portal:Cloud

  1. #1

    Default Outdated / Inaccurate information on Portal:Cloud

    Today I was searching up to date information related to where and which openSUSE images are available for cloud instances. I came to https://en.opensuse.org/Portal:Cloud But that info is old and inaccurate.

    After a small research, there is no openSUSE Leap available to my knowledge in any of the mayor cloud providers, only SLES.

    I can understand to have some wiki pages outdated because not everything needs review, but in my humble opinion in 2021, where cloud computing is at its top that info should be up-to-date and accurate.

    Maybe is there a reason that I don't know for those pages not being update since 2016, if that's the case, well sorry for bringing this up.

    You mean "major cloud providers" like say..

    Amazon?
    https://aws.amazon.com/marketplace/p...-wn2xje27ui45o

    Azure?
    https://azuremarketplace.microsoft.c...p?tab=overview

    Linode?
    https://www.linode.com/distributions/

    I personally use Leap on providers such as Hetzner and UpCloud.

    You are right, thanks for bringing this to my attention because I really had difficulties to find openSUSE images on those providers. I probably did something really wrong that day because doing a simple search now I can easily find those images too.

    Thanks!

    I'm looking in my Upcloud account now but I can't seem to find an option to install openSUSE. Where are you seeing that? I would love to work with openSUSE on Upcloud!

    There are no openSUSE images on upCloud (this is a capture from the dashboard: https://ibb.co/8gr7wsS) I use CentOS right now on upCloud (and we use Ubuntu at work), and since the centOS fiasco I don't know what to do with my upCloud servers.

    That's the reason I was looking through the openSUSE wiki cloud info.

    As far as I've seen, openSUSE is available in AWS Market, Linode, Google Cloud, Azure I guess (Not sure because I never used Azure) and some German providers, and maybe others that I am missing.

    In any case, I updated the wiki public cloud images section, bumping the releases and the google cloud naming. https://en.opensuse.org/Portal:Cloud

    Unfortunately UpCloud does not offer direct images - I have been asking them for years to do so but the lack of an "LTS version" has been a problem.

    So I made a custom 15.2 (and now 15.3) image that I clone when I want to create new systems ( https://upcloud.com/community/tutori...server-images/ )
