Choose the Combination of Support Options That’s Right for Your Organization

Technical Support Options

Essential Support

This service suits organizations needing their software from a commercial repository, backed by a basic support contract that handles migration issues across operating systems with the same major version and includes up to 6 years of extended lifecycle support.

Enhanced Support

This service addresses the requirements of organizations seeking enterprise-grade technical support for a diverse range of open-source software without the commitment to immediate, complex, and expensive support agreements.


Security Support

Extended Security Updates

This service is designed for organizations seeking to ensure long-term security and compliance of their FIPS-validated deployments. It is also ideal for those prioritizing stable and secure environments without having to upgrade to a new OS version frequently.

FIPS Packages for AlmaLinux

TuxCare provides the AlmaLinux community with free FIPS-validated kernel and OpenSSL packages for non-commercial use.
For commercial applications and extended lifecycle with FIPS-compliant patches please refer to our Extended Security Updates product.
