Extended CloudLinux TuxCare support will give CentOS 8 users time to determine which of the CentOS clones will work best for them.

Companies that are still weighing their options on replacing CentOS 8 before it reaches end-of-life status no longer have to be in a hurry, because they can now get full support, including all important security and bug fixes, well beyond its official end-of-life date. 

Last week, CloudLinux announced that the company's TuxCare division, which offers extended support for selected Linux distributions, announced that it's now offering updates and support for CentOS 8 through the end of 2025.
