Benefits of Migrating from CentOS Linux to Red Hat Enterprise Linux

The CentOS Project will discontinue updates and releases of CentOS Linux® between 2021 and 2024. As a result, CentOS Linux users must migrate to a new operating system to continue receiving updates, patches, and new features. While implementing a new operating system may seem tedious, it also presents an opportunity to reassess your organization’s needs and choose a platform that will better support your business now and in the future.

A consistent, intelligent operating foundation for modern IT and enterprise hybrid cloud deployments, Red Hat® Enterprise Linux delivers optimal benefits for your organization. Because CentOS Linux is derived from Red Hat Enterprise Linux sources, you can continue to use many of the same techniques and elements while gaining more features, tools, support, and value.

Compared to organizations that use unpaid alternatives like CentOS Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Linux users experience:

  • 16% lower three-year cost of operations.
  • 32% more efficient IT infrastructure teams.
  • 35% faster development life cycles.
  • 81% less unplanned downtime.
