Extended Lifecycle Support for Linux End of Life

Eliminate Cybersecurity vulnerabilities while running end of life Linux

An unsupported operating system is a ticking time bomb.

Linux kernels, libraries, and packages are no longer getting updated when a Linux distribution enters into an end of life state. That puts your servers, your data, and your business at risk of a cyberattack.

Protect your servers and stay compliant with Extended Lifecycle Support services from TuxCare. A simple, affordable monthly fee buys you the time you need to migrate to a supported operating system or to upgrade to the newest version of your current Linux flavor.

What is included in Extended Lifecycle Support?

  • Patches available soon after CVEs go public
    The TuxCare team is famous for quickly delivering patches for critical CVEs right after the CVE goes public.
  • Easy setup, no migration required
    Run a single script. No reboot is necessary, never interrupt your operations. Simply sync to a new repository file.
  • Kernel and critical package updates
    Any Extended Lifecycle Support subscription includes regular kernel updates plus updates for critical packages including Apache, PHP, MySQL, Glibc, OpenSSL/SSH.
  • Years of support
    Extended Lifecycle Support by TuxCare lasts 4 years beyond end of life dates at a minimum. It gives you ample time to migrate.
