We’re excited to highlight that RackN officially added Rocky Linux support in our recent Digital Rebar v4.7 release!

Rocky Linux provides a community maintained alternate to CentOS for operators who are concerned about IBM Red Hat’s migration of the distribution to stream releases. See the Cloud2030 discussion for more details.

This 12 minute video shows an end-to-end process from setting up Digital Rebar via our Universal Workflow and streamlined bootstrapping process to a running Rocky Linux system.

The goal of the video is to make it easy for users to replicate the experience of provisioning Rocky Linux in their own infrastructure.

A few enhancements include:

  • IBM LPAR and SuperMicro hardware support
  • Installation instructions will default to streamlined bootstrapping with –universal flag
  • Updates to ESXi install workflow to reduce boot environments from Vendor ISO sprawl
  • Rocky and Alma Linux added to Universal Workflow
