I am an instructor in a community college in Australia. We are making increasing use of
Fedora Cloud images in our practical labs on AWS.
Fedora just works and has been a great option for us, but we're wondering if there is
more information anywhere about what goes into (and comes out of) a Fedora Cloud image, in
comparison with regular Fedora.
That's good to hear!
We have noticed several things, eg:
- cronjobs (cronie) not installed
systemd timers are one alternative, or dnf install cronie
- firewall not installed (not really necessary in AWS environment)
Yeah the standard there has been no firewall on by default because cloud providers
firewalling primitives built in at a higher level.
- cloud-init installed

We build the cloud base image using an Anaconda kickstart located here:
Some of the documentation around Fedora Cloud seems a little out of date, maybe we could
look at updating some docs as a class project somewhere down the line.
Would love to have you be more involved in the community. We hang out in #fedora-cloud on
and our next meeting is bi-weekly. See the Meetings section of
