Flatcar Container Linux available in Azure Marketplace
Published date: 23 March, 2020
CoreOS Container Linux will reach its end-of-life on 26th May 2020, after which there will be no further updates. All CoreOS customers should implement a migration plan by this date. Flatcar's compatibility with CoreOS and availability in the Azure Marketplace makes it a viable and straightforward migration choice for container workloads running on Azure.
Note that Red Hat OpenShift customers can continue to use Red Hat Enterprise Linux CoreOS, which remains supported.
Migrating from CoreOS
Migrating from CoreOS to Flatcar Container Linux is as simple as running a shell script and rebooting your virtual machine (VM). Read the instructions.
