A brief introduction to CentOS 7

  1. 1. A brief introduction to CentOS 7 Taizo Ito <> HDE, Inc.
  2. 2. There are many changes Including very important changes. Some of them are new features. - systemd (* new feature) - firewalld (* new feature) - Network management method (NetworkManager) and some OSSs are significantly changed.
  3. 3. systemd Process and service management system ● SystemVinit or upstart is replaced with it. ● Uses D-Bus as a backend
  4. 4. firewalld Packet filter management system ● Set up filter policy by combining predefined zone and service ● Uses iptables as a backend ● cons: Can’t configure OUTPUT chain
  5. 5. NetworkManager A dynamic network control daemon ● Network management is unified with NetworkManager ● Traditional ifcfg style is still supported ● It provides some CLIs to control and configure network (a little difficult to use it) ● Also uses D-Bus
  6. 6. OSS Updates Some of them are very important changes for our products. ● Apache From 2.2 to 2.4 Not a few directives are deprecated. Order/Allow/Deny directives ● MariaDB New CentOS provides it instead of MySQL. Basically both are the same things. No need to much effort to migrate ● etc...
  7. 7. To sum up, - There are many significant changes in the new CentOS. - The new CentOS largely depends on D-Bus. Therefore, If you want to use it comfortably and migrate old settings correctly, you should learn about these changes as well as D-Bus system.
