Supported operating systems

Rackspace Public Cloud provides the following supported images. On the same date that a distributor updates an operating system (OS), Rackspace updates services to support the OS update. We continue to support earlier versions of the OS for a limited time after the OS update.

We do not support OSs marked as end-of-life (EOL) by its distributor.

We support current versions of the following OSs:

  • CentOS
  • CoreOS *
  • Debian®
  • Fedora® *
  • Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® (OnMetal Servers only)
  • Ubuntu®
  • Vyatta®
  • Windows® Server® 2008 R2
  • Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Windows Server 2016 (OnMetal Servers only)

Note: Those operating systems with an asterisk (*) to the right of the name are not supported at the Managed Operations service level.
