Planning for CentOS 6 EOL?

Operating Systems

RHEL 6 EOL and CentOS 6 EOL 

RHEL 6 EOL and CentOS 6 EOL is November 30, 2020. Red Hat is offering extended lifecycle support for RHEL 6, but it is expensive and limited to technical support only, no security patches. This will leave many organizations’ operating systems open to security vulnerabilities. Is your organization wondering how you should proceed?

Options for RHEL 6 Users

Those who are on RHEL 6 have a few options to choose from. Users can either to rush have an upgrade, pay new costs for extended lifecycle support for Red Hat, or they can migrate CentOS 6. One of the benefits of moving to CentOS 6 is the ability to get support beyond the Red Hat technical support. OpenLogic can even provide roadmaps for future upgrades such as CentOS 8. RHEL 6 EOL is coming soon and it is time to make a plan to ensure your organization isn’t left vulnerable. That is possible with OpenLogic by Perforce.
