[atomic-devel] New CentOS Atomic Host Available

An updated version of CentOS Atomic Host (version 7.20160203) is now 
available for download. CentOS Atomic Host is a lean operating system 
designed to run Docker containers, built from standard CentOS 7 RPMs, and 
tracking the component versions included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux Atomic 
Host 7.2.

CentOS Atomic Host is available as a VirtualBox or libvirt-formatted 
Vagrant box, or as an installable ISO, qcow2 or Amazon Machine image. These 
images are available for download at 
cloud.centos.org(http://cloud.centos.org/centos/7/atomic/images/). The 
backing ostree repo is published to 

CentOS Atomic Host includes these core component versions:

* kernel-3.10.0-327.4.5.el7.x86_64
* cloud-init-0.7.5-10.el7.centos.1.x86_64
* atomic-1.6-6.gitca1e384.el7.x86_64
* kubernetes-1.0.3-0.2.gitb9a88a7.el7.x86_64
* etcd-2.1.1-2.el7.x86_64
* ostree-2015.9-2.atomic.el7.x86_64
* docker-1.8.2-10.el7.centos.x86_64
* flannel-0.5.3-8.el7.x86_64

## Upgrading

If you're running a previous version of CentOS Atomic Host, you can upgrade 
to the current image by running the following command:

$ sudo atomic host upgrade

## Images

### Vagrant

-Libvirt.box) (416 MB) and CentOS-Atomic-Host-7-Vagrant-Virtualbox.box 
-Virtualbox.box) (428 MB) are Vagrant boxes for Libvirt and Virtualbox 

The easiest way to consume these images is via the Atlas / Vagrant Cloud 
setup (see https://atlas.hashicorp.com/centos/boxes/atomic-host).  For 
example, getting the VirtualBox instance up would involve running  the 
following two commands on a machine with vagrant installed:

$ vagrant init centos/atomic-host && vagrant up --provider virtualbox 

### ISO

The installer ISO 
er.iso)  (737 MB) can be used via regular install methods (PXE, CD, USB 
image,  etc.) and uses the Anaconda installer to deliver the CentOS Atomic 
Host.  This allows flexibility to control the install using kickstarts and  
define custom storage, networking and user accounts. This is the  
recommended process for getting CentOS Atomic Host onto bare metal  
machines, or to generate your own image sets for custom environments.

### QCOW2

The CentOS-Atomic-Host-7-GenericCloud.qcow2 
Cloud.qcow2) (1 GB)  is suitable for use in on-premise and local 
virtualized environments. We test this on OpenStack, AWS and local Libvirt 
installs. If your virtualization platform does not provide its own 
cloud-init metadata source, you can create your 
/) NoCloud iso image.

## Release Cycle

The CentOS Atomic Host image follows the upstream Red Hat Enterprise Linux 
Atomic Host cadence. After sources are released, they're rebuilt and 
included in new images. After the images are tested by the SIG and deemed 
ready, we announce them.

## Getting Involved

CentOS Atomic Host is produced by the CentOS Atomic SIG 
(http://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Atomic), based on upstream 
work from  Project Atomic (http://www.projectatomic.io/). If you'd like to 
work on testing images, help with packaging, documentation -- join us! 

The SIG meets weekly on Thursdays at 16:00 UTC in the #centos-devel 
channel, and you'll often find us in #atomic and/or #centos-devel if you 
have questions. You can also join the atomic-devel 
(https://lists.projectatomic.io/mailman/listinfo/atomic-devel) mailing list 
if you'd like to discuss the direction of Project Atomic, its components, 
or have other questions. 

## Getting Help

If you run into any problems with the images or components, feel free to 
ask on the centos-devel 
(http://lists.centos.org/mailman/listinfo/centos-devel) mailing list. 

Have questions about using Atomic? See the atomic 
(https://lists.projectatomic.io/mailman/listinfo/atomic) mailing list or
