The Team Fedora was recently released their latest Fedora 39 Operating System with the latest kernel 6.5 and Gnome 45 Desktop Environment. It's really looking good and provides the best desktop experience. However, not all people use this Fedora version as a personal computer because not all people are familiar with Linux operating systems. Some may use the Windows Operating System or macOS. In these cases, if someone has their own website or is thinking about hosting their own website, it is recommended to consider using Fedora 39 Cloud Server for hosting and web applications.
If you need to start hosting with Fedora, you can start with popular cloud service providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud, and Azure. Currently, Fedora 39 Cloud is available and stable on AWS in 14 regions. Fedora Cloud is supported on Intel and AMD x86_64 systems, ARM architecture 64 systems, Power ppc64le systems, and IBM 5390x2 systems. In short, it is supported by various cloud service providers and homelab servers.
Fedora 39 Cloud in aws
For importing custom images to AWS, they are known as AMIs. At this time, if you are looking to import a custom image to AWS, you may encounter an error stating "Linux Kernel version 15 not supported". In this case, Team Fedora may have created the Fedora 39 Cloud Images and shared them with us.
If you are searching for Fedora 39 in the AWS Marketplace, you can find it by visiting the Fedora Cloud website. On the website, select the appropriate system architecture (x86_64 or aarch64) and choose the AWS option.
From the list, select the region and click on the rocket icon to redirect to the AWS EC2 VM creation dashboard. To create a VM, provide a name in the Name option, do not apply any changes on the AMI panel, select the instance size according to your budget, create a new keypair for SSH access, choose the desired networking options, configure the storage size, and finally, launch the instance.
After following all the steps, you may need to wait for about 5 minutes. Once the instance is ready, you can connect to it using an SSH client. The default username for Fedora is "Fedora".
From the given screenshot, you can see that my Fedora 39 system is hosted on an Amuron host and my current OS is Fedora 39 Cloud Edition.
Fedora 39 Cloud Server in Other
Fedora Cloud is also supported on other virtualization platforms such as Oracle VirtualBox and VMware Workstation Player. All the disk image server files are available. If you need to run the Fedora 39 Cloud Server on the Azure portal, you can download and import the VHD file as a custom VM. Similarly, in Google Cloud, you can download and import the image file. For homelab servers, you can download the image and import it into your server to create your own lab.
