CloudLinux offers CentOS 8 users a support lifeline
Red Hat won't support CentOS 8 past the end of the year - but CloudLinux will provide updates and support to CentOS 8 until the end of 2025, giving CentOS 8 users a critical lifeline.
When Red Hat, CentOS's Linux parent company, announced it was "shifting focus from CentOS Linux, the rebuild of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), to CentOS Stream," which is essentially a beta RHEL rolling release Linux distribution, CentOS users were upset. When CentOS 8 users discovered they'd only get support until the end of 2021, instead of 2029, they were ticked off. Now, CloudLinux has come to CentOS 8 users' rescue.
CloudLinux has announced it will provide updates and support for CentOS 8 through December 31, 2025. This gives CentOS 8 users a lifeline.
