Scheduled
As part of our OS Image updates, we have recently made available an Ubuntu 18.04 64-bit image. We will shortly make available Windows 2019 Standard and Datacenter images as well as a SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 15 image.

In conjunction with this round of updates, on April 22 we will be removing some older images that are at the end of their support cycle.

CloudControl Change Id: IMG-73
Time: OS Images will be removed sometime during April 22 in each location
Expected Total Duration: None - the images will simply be removed from the UI and API

The five images that are being retired are:

CentOS 5 64-bit 2 CPU
CentOS 5 32-bit 2 CPU
Ubuntu 12.04 2 CPU
SuSE Linux Ent 64-bit 2 CPU (with description SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP4)
Win2008 R2 Ent 64-Bit with MS SP Fnd

Retired means that these OS Images will no longer be available to deploy from our Images and Applications Dashboard described in:

This change does NOT impact existing Client Images. If you wish to continue using these images, please create your own Client Image prior to the decommission as described in:

How to Clone a Cloud Server to Create a Client Image - https://docs.mcp-services.net/x/pwMk

The CloudControl UI, API, and all existing Cloud Servers are unaffected by this change. This announcement is for informational purposes prior to OS Image removal.
