CloudLinux is giving extra life to kernels based on CentOS 6 and RHEL 6.
The CloudLinux OS 6 kernel and the hybrid kernel will be maintained until June 30. 2024.
This includes full CloudLinux OS support as well; you'll get fresh releases of all CloudLinux packages till the EOL.
RHEL 8 and CentOS 8 are EOL May 5, 2029. CloudLinux OS 6 extended support, will give you the option to migrate directly from version 6 to 8 skipping version 7 entirely (CloudLinux OS 8 is in development now). This will give you more time to port and test your applications, and ensure a rock-solid and safe platform for your mission-critical processes.
The fees for CloudLinux OS 6 extended support are calculated as a sliding-scale proportion of the annual base OS license fee.
- In the first year, the cost will be an additional 10% of the annual base license fee;
- in the second year, the additional cost will be 20% of the annual base license fee;
- and in the third year, the additional cost will be 30% of the annual base license fee.
