Future OS Server: Install Server or Cloud

   Future OS Server installation media are of two types. Ensi and lesi are denoted by their codenames.

ensi (ext4, no swap, install) - Cloud and Virtual Private Server (VPS)
lesi  (lvm, efi, swap, install) - Dedicated and Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS)

   You cannot change the disk structure specified in the server installation media! Download the installation media you need and install with it. These partitioning structures are adapted to existing server platforms.

   ensi installation media has no swap space and is suitable for small-scale virtual servers and cloud structures. It is created as an ext4 file system on a single partition.

   It is installed with uefi support if the server platform supports efi, otherwise as standard partitioning. The disk partitioning structure is lvm as it targets large servers. Dedicated servers need swap space for high workloads.

   Both installation media include qemu-guest-agent software for system monitoring support. It can be installed on servers with both virtual and real hardware in two environments.

   Apart from these, there is a ready-made qcow2 virtual disk that we have created for use on cloud platforms. It includes cloud-init software and you can attach it as an custom image to any cloud platform and create your server.
