We recommend making your own decisions about where and how to run
Fedora CoreOS based on your use case, operational needs, and experience.
If Fedora CoreOS doesn't meet your needs, you may want to consider Flatcar Container Linux, which is a fork of CoreOS Container Linux. In addition, Red Hat OpenShift includes RHEL CoreOS as an integral component.
Effective immediately, the CoreOS Container Linux listing on AWS Marketplace will no longer be available to new subscribers. Note that this does not affect existing subscribers to Container Linux on AWS Marketplace, nor does it affect users launching Container Linux via the AMI IDs listed on the CoreOS download page.
On May 26, the final updates to CoreOS Container Linux will begin rolling out. Any bugs or security vulnerabilities discovered after that date will not be fixed.
On or after September 1, published resources related to CoreOS Container Linux will be deleted or made read-only. OS downloads will be removed, CoreUpdate servers will be shut down, and OS images will be removed from AWS, Azure, and Google Compute Engine. GitHub repositories, including the issue tracker, will become read-only. Documentation will continue to exist for as long as is practical, to aid migration to other operating systems. Existing Container Linux machines will continue running, but will no longer be able to download updates. New CoreOS Container Linux machines will not be launchable in public clouds without prior preparation.
We know this timeline is aggressive. We've tried to provide the longest possible migration period consistent with our ability to maintain the OS. We will be taking the unusual step of deleting CoreOS Container Linux artifacts and images after September 1 to discourage continued use after the OS is no longer receiving security updates.
We'd like to extend our gratitude to our users, contributors, partners, and advocates who contributed to the success of CoreOS and Container Linux over the years. We'd especially like to thank Rackspace, DigitalOcean, and Azure for their early support and Geoff Levand for his contributions to the ARM64 port. It's been a pleasure collaborating with all of you and we hope we've provided a useful service.
As always, if you have any questions, please get in touch via the coreos-user mailing list or in #coreos on Freenode.
