At Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) we understand that successful creation and deployment of cloud-base applications requires a broad array of just-right technology. We firmly believe in providing freedom and flexibility of choice when it comes to constructing an application ecosystem. That is why we are excited to announce that AlmaLinux is now available on the OCI marketplace. With this addition to the OCI Marketplace, cloud users can now deploy Almalinux OS Virtual Machines on a Virtual Cloud Network (VCN) with the simple click of a button.

By making this marketplace image available, everyone will have an easy way to build and deploy applications using AlmaLinux on OCI. And if you are unfamiliar with it, AlmaLinux OS is an open-source, community-driven Linux operating system intended to pick up where the CentOS Linux stable release left off. AlmaLinux OS is a 1:1 binary compatible clone of Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® (RHEL), guided and built by the community.

The AlmaLinux Marketplace image is compatible with Intel, AMD, and Arm based Ampere A1 shapes on OCI with these features:

  • Production-ready — AlmaLinux OS is an enterprise-grade server OS and a stable Linux distribution that comes with regular releases and extended support periods. You can rely on AlmaLinux OS to run all critical workloads.
  • Community supported, always free — AlmaLinux OS Foundation members, sponsors, and partners back the AlmaLinux OS with investments and long support commitments to ensure the distribution is free of limitations, fees, and charges

More options mean more open source on OCI. Go directly to the OCI Marketplace today to deploy AlmaLinux; choose either the ARM-based AArch64 or Intel / AMD based X86_64 and deploy with just a few clicks.
