We used to take the raw image and generate cloud images for all the 3 public clouds but with 8.1 image builder finally supports GCP as well so you can just use that to build custom cloud images for AWS, GCP and Azure in a unified way. Since it is a matter of a few minutes work to install one, run an update, and store your personal imae *with* enhanced networking enabled, Isn't it enough to simply have a base older OS to work with? If necessary, you can even restrict your updates to not use the "updates" repositories and only update to the next release time base image. RHEL does not support this without a nightmare of grabbing a DVD image and mounting that somewhere to get the release time packages only, but CentOS releases have been very good about publishing the release time base operating system in clearn format.
