The Fedora Cloud SIG works to make Fedora successful on all major cloud platforms, public and private.

Looking for Fedora EC2 information?

A list of currently supported AMIs is maintained here

We also have Instructions for rolling your own AMIs with boxgrinder.

Joining and participating in the Cloud SIG

We don't have a formalized join process. Signing up on the mailing list, coming to Cloud SIG meetings, and joining our IRC channel are good ways to get involved. If you're interested in helping out with packaging, see the Current Projects section on this wiki page.

Mailing List


Fedora Cloud folks hang out on at #fedora-cloud.

Haven't used IRC for communication before? More information on how to use IRC is available here.


Meetings are held weekly on Fridays, 1900 UTC (3pm Eastern, Noon Pacific, CEST 2100) on #fedora-meeting.

See the Cloud SIG meetings page for more information and archived meeting logs.
