What images are available and how they differ?

Available operating system images in CREODIAS platform:


  • Centos 7
  • Centos 8
  • Centos 7 + Sen4CAP
  • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
  • Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
  • OSGeo-Live 13 + TensorFlow (based on Lubuntu)
  • Fedora Atomic


  • Windows 2016 Server

  • Windows 2016+ArcGIS

  “Historical” images:

We also provide OS images which are presented below:

  • RHEL7 Mini

Historical images (not being updated) are able to be spawned amongst two versions: mini and full. The Mini version consists of basic fundamentals of the system and few tools such as s3cmd which is responsible for performing actions associated with object storage. Those additional suppliants were installed due to huge impact of users.

Full version contains graphical environment like GNOME or MATE, snap program, grass libraries, postgresql.

How do CloudFerro images differ from original?

Official images impose many difficulties and tasks on cloud-init what makes its behave a little overloaded.


We performed changes in some sectors:


  •  Own original network interface service and support

  • Booting

  • Expanding partition /dev/vda1

  • Local accounts

  • ssh keys generations

Our images include initial configuration:


  • /eodata directory
  • eodata group with gid 100000
  • user eodata with uid 100000 who has not got access through Horizon Console. (Only SSH access)
  • entry in /etc/fstab :

#nfs.eodata.cloudferro.com:/eodata/repository /eodata nfs ro,_netdev,noatime,nodiratime,noauto 0 0


Currently every supported image obtains preinstalled s3fs-fuse which has been downloaded from github CloudFerro and prepared with precisely assumed instructions.


For instances with eodata network access, eodata volumes are automatically mounted via s3fs. It’s being applicated by entry in /etc/fstab
s3fs#DIAS   /eodata    fuse passwd_file=/root/.passwd-s3fs,_netdev,allow_other,use_path_request_style,uid=0,umask=0222,mp_umask=0222,mp_umask=0222,gid=0,url=http://data.cloudferro.com,use_cache=1,max_stat_cache_size=60000,list_object_max_keys=10000 0 0


Special distribution:

OSGeo-Live is available open source Live CD containing a set of geospatial software based on Ubuntu in a graphical environment. It is the only operating system that brings graphical environment after default installation.

Currently we air OSGeo-Live 13 version which is based on Lubuntu.


Centos 7 + Sen4CAP project aims at providing to the European and national stakeholders of the CAP validated algorithms, products, workflows and best practices for agriculture monitoring relevant for the management of the CAP.

Operation systems not intended for standard use:

However, there are some operation systems which are available for user's choice, but we STRICTLY DO NOT RECOMMEND using it. Those OSes are used for data orchestration, deployment of dedicated servers, or as an environment for some applications.
At the moment, usage of forthcoming systems may cause inconveniences:

  • App Catalog Image

  • App Catalog Kubernetes Trusty Image

  • murano-openvpn-server-image

  • OpenVPN Server
