How to use images

Every deployed machine runs a MAAS-supplied image, whether standard or custom, downloaded from a stream or picked up from a local mirror.

Standard images

MAAS keeps a broad inventory of Ubuntu versions available for different architectures.

Custom images

You can build and deploy many other types of images, including CentOS, RHEL, Rocky, SLES, and even Windows.

Local image mirroring

Speed up image downloads by using a local image mirror.

VMWare images

MAAS also supports deploying VMWare images to appropriate virtual machine configurations.

RT kernel

Need a real-time kernel? It’s simple to deploy one with cloud-init.
