How does the RedHat Announcement about RHEL impact my migration options?

In June 2023, RedHat announced they will be limiting access to RHEL code, making it difficult for top CentOS alternatives like Rocky Linux and AlmaLinux to stay 1:1 compatible. When we saw a similar disruption in 2020 with the ending of CentOS for CentOS Stream, we saw new community projects develop. Ultimately, by waiting for things to settle over the next several years, and utilizing our team of experts to stay on top of the latest industry information, you’ll have a clear migration path and more seamless migration experience.
