On July 4, 2023, we released the first container images for Enterprise Linux family systems on ARM64 architecture (aarch64). We produce images for a number of operating systems in this family.
As of today these are:
- EuroLinux 9
- AlmaLinux 9
- CentOS Stream 9
- Oracle Linux 9
- Rocky Linux 9.
All of these images have changes in their tagging. As of now, the naming scheme of the images for the latest versions is as follows:
$SYSTEM_NAME-$SYSTEM_VERSION:latest-$ARCHITECTURE (a tag alone is:
latest-$ARCHITECTURE). The naming used earlier, that is
$SYSTEM_NAME-$SYSTEM_VERSION:latest (only the tag:
latest) currently points to a manifest of images.
What's important, the change is completely neutral for existing users. The image manifest works like an alias, so for a container runtime environment running on aarch64 (arm64) architecture, an arm64 (aarch64) image will automatically be downloaded, and for an environment running on x86_64 architecture, an amd64 (x86_64) image will automatically be downloaded. The entire change adds new architectures to the officially supported architectures for our container images.
