List of differences between standard and cloud systems

The goal of this page is to list the differences, and organize which and how to resolve them. Here, standard refers to Debian systems installed with DebianInstaller with the default settings, following the instructions in http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/installmanual.

Eventually, we should converge on a consensus that the remaining differences, if any, do not prevent us to claim that the cloud images are genuine Debian systems (706052).

Distribution Binary images

  • Debian does not distribute binary images of standard systems, but distributes installation media with a binary image of DebianInstaller.

  • AWS, Azure and GCE images are available on the respective public clouds.
  • Distribution of a generic cloud image in the debian archive is under discussion.
