Running BalenaOS in cloud

Is there any support for running BalenaOS in either AWS or Azure?
We are seeing some use cases where a physical device is not optimal but we wish to keep the same fleet management over all deployments.

Hi there,

Thanks for reaching out. While we don’t provide official support for that use case, internally we have run BalenaOS on AWS and DigitalOcean successfully. The generic x86 64-bit image is what we used.

It’s an interesting use case we’re exploring. We’d love to hear how you’d like to make use of it.

Hi, as a follow up and in case you want to experiment with this let me point you to how we generate the AMI images for AWS. balena-yocto-scripts/jenkins_generate_ami.sh at master · balena-os/balena-yocto-scripts · GitHub
