Amazon Linux 2

Amazon Linux 2 integrates with Amazon’s cloud computing platform and Amazon Web Services (AWS). AWS includes an updated deep security manager, C library, compiler, build toolchain, Amazon Machine Image (AMI), cloud-init, and optimized LTS Kernel for better performance on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). Customer workloads perform better on Amazon Linux 2, which supports the latest EC2 instance capabilities.

Amazon Linux 2 is a stable, secure, high-performance OS. It develops and runs cloud and enterprise applications with updated community-driven enhancements. Unlike most operating systems, it includes both long term support (LTS) and the latest and greatest popular software packages.

Amazon Linux 2 boosts developer productivity. AWS LTS applies to systemd, GCC 7.3, Gilbc 2.26, and Binutils 2.29.1 core packages. Rapidly evolving technologies are updated more frequently and are included in an extras channel. System manager (formerly SSM) configures and manages scalable EC2 instances, edge devices, virtual machines (VMs), and on-premises servers.

Amazon Linux 2 streamlines development and testing as a virtual machine and container image all in one Linux distro. App development is accelerated by testing, integrating, and certifying from your integrated development environment (IDE) on premises. One Amazon Linux 2 in AWS distro runs workloads smoothly on both AWS and Azure. AWS Amazon Machine Image can launch an instance from AWS SDK, CLI, and EC2 supporting HVM AMIs. Container images can be run in any Docker environment, including your laptop, AWS EC2 instances, and ECS clusters. It can also be run as a virtual machine image on Kernel-based Virtual Machine (KVM), VirtualBox, Hyper-V, and EsXi.

Developer, information technology, and ISV teams enjoy LTS stability. AWS updates security and maintenance for five years until June 30, 2023. Amazon Linux 2 comes at no additional charge. Vulnerability management includes kernel live patching (KLP) so that your enterprise is always updated and never disrupted, with no reboot required. Amazon Linux 2 is always secure; SSH key pairs and disabled remote root login limit remote access. 

Ntegral certified images are always up-to-date, secure, and built to work right out of the box.

Ntegral packages applications following industry standards, and continuously monitors all components and libraries for vulnerabilities and application updates. When any security threat or update is identified, Ntegral automatically repackages the applications and pushes the latest versions to the cloud marketplaces.
