CentOS (Community ENTerprise Operating System) is a free community-driven project, with open source code delivered from RHEL Linux distribution.
Due to continuous community contribution, CentOS offers enterprise-level stability strengthened by robust performance and represents a reliable, low-maintenance, secure option for running virtual private servers.
So, to effortlessly set up your own CentOS Elastic VPS inside the platform, log in to your CirrusGrid account and access environment topology wizard.
The appropriate instance (i.e. CentOS 6.8 or CentOS 7.2) can be found within the appropriate VPS section at the bottom left wizard corner (for the detailed installation guidance, refer to the VPS Configuration page).
Note: By default, the VPS node is delivered with the automatically attached public IP address (one per instance).
CirrusGrid provides a set of inbuilt tools for applying some basic settings to your VPS instance right via the dashboard UI. For more complicated configs, you’ll need to access it via SSH – this can be accomplished through the CirrusGrid SSH Gate or via any 3rd-party software (i.e. external SSH client) using Public IP address.
Once your virtual private server on top of CentOS is set up and properly configured, consider exploring the following example tutorials:
