CloudCenter 4.8 has reached End of Life (EOL) as of November 14, 2018. See End of Support Notices for additional context.

Supported Base OS Images



Base OS images refer to Linux and Microsoft Windows cloud images on which you install CloudCenter components. These virtual base images comprise of the underlying operating system and any operations tools that are required or referenced by services.

Base OS Images (also referred to as Worker images) are only required for clouds that do not support dynamic bootstrapping. Some clouds do not support dynamic bootstrapping and will require base Operating System (OS) image preparation. The tables in this section identify a complete list of images provided by Cisco for each cloud and OS.

Dynamic Bootstrapping

If the CloudCenter platform supports bootstrapping, then the Dynamic Bootstrapping column identifies the status for that OS as Supported to indicate that CloudCenter detects a missing agent and automatically pushes the agent to the VMs at provisioning time. See Dynamic Bootstrapping Support for additional context.
