Rocky Linux 9 Brings Security Enhancements and Better Performance for Enterprise Users
Rocky Linux 9 became generally available today, providing users of the open-source operating system with a series of security and performance updates.
Rocky Linux is based on the CentOS Linux operating system that is developed by Red Hat and is widely used in the cloud and on-premises to run enterprise applications. Since 2020, Red Hat has no longer produced a full, freely available version of CentOS that is intended as an enterprise Linux distribution. Red Hat’s decision spawned a number of organizations, including the Rocky Enterprise Software Foundation (RESF) and Alma Linux, to create their own versions of CentOS.
Among the primary supporters of the RESF is CIQ, which announced on May 11 that it had raised $26 million to help it grow its Rocky Linux efforts.
