Juju 1.24.0 has initial support for CentOS as a deployment OS (the Juju client
software is already supported on CentOS - see the
Install Documentation page). This is experimental and has a
number of known issues. However, most of thefunctionality of Juju is there and
ready to be used and tested.
CentOS should be deployable on any cloud that supports
cloud-init in it's
CentOS images. It is possible to use CentOS as both a state machine (taking

Deploying a charm on CentOS is no different than deploying one on Ubuntu or Windows. The only thing that needs to change is the series which is "centos7". For example, from Launchpad:
juju deploy lp:~me/centos7/charm
or from a local charm:
juju deploy --repository=/home/user/charms local:centos7/charm

Note that Centos7 agents are already in streams. There is no need install Go, compile, tar, and running Juju metadata. You can sync the streams to a web server visible to your Juju environment.
mkdir local juju sync-agent-binaries --local-dir local cp -r local/tools <path/to/webserver>
- Containers are not yet supported
- There is a lack of mongo tools at the moment so any functionality depending on those is not available(for example backups)
- There is no way to currently specify a proxy or mirror for
yumin the environment configuration. The values that you specify for
aptpackages will be used for
yumpackages as well. This limitation will be fixed as soon as possible.
