SysEleven provides and maintains a set of images in the SysEleven Stack.
The SysEleven Stack also offers the possibility to upload custom images.
You can view and manage images both via the OpenStack API, as well as using the Dashboard (GUI).
Images with the description sys11 optimized are built, optimized, tested and supported by SysEleven.
Apart from building images from scratch SysEleven adjusts the file system alignment to work best with the underlying storage system.

Additionally to the self-bild images we also provide standard images from their original sources.
Standard cloud images are supported with best effort.
