Extending ELS Offering to
Python 2.7 for EL9
Continue to use existing Python 2.7 software on AlmaLinux, Rocky, or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9. The TuxCare ELS program for Python 2.7 enables you to continue using your existing software as before, on a modern platform that satisfies your compliance requirements, while you receive security updates for high and critical vulnerabilities.
The need for the bridge between Python 2.x and 3.0
Software written in python 2.7 cannot run on new platforms that are necessary for enabling compliance requirements, e.g., deprecation of insecure cryptographic algorithms, support of secure communication protocols such as TLS 1.3. At the same time many of these applications are still relevant and needed but moving to Python 3.x will either be too late, or the investment in development and QA may not justify the value.
Does your DevOps team need to deploy Python 2.7 applications on EL9, or do you plan to move to AlmaLinux or Rocky Linux?
What can we do to help with your application transformation journey?
Backport any version code requires expertise and experience. Clients needing this bridge require several support layers, including extended support for present and future CVEs. TuxCare, a global Linux and Open Source patching firm with real-world experience, can help.
Capturing your technical needs today
TuxCare offers similar code bridge capabilities for PHP and other applications requiring extended support beyond the manufacturers lifecycles. Application teams need time to develop their next-gen code, communicate confidence with their clients, and the ability to extend the life of their solution, and maintain the highest security.
ELS from TuxCare buys you the time needed while providing the required updates to keep your client secure during your application transformation.
Extend your timeline for development without rushing clients to upgrade prematurely.
Create a solid migration of code without jeopardizing client stability.
Continue to receive CVE updates well beyond the manufacturer's EOS date.
Partnering with TuxCare
If you are seeking a partner in your development journey to python 3x and EL9, TuxCare is your partner. We are here to help give you the bridge to your legacy and future codes while sustaining your client base.
Why should you change your code when a new version of a language is released if it runs fine as-is? Python Extended Lifecycle Service from TuxCare breathes new life into code written for out-of-support Python versions with rapid security updates, vulnerability fixes, and more.
TuxCare team came a long way from the first release of our first service – KernelCare – six years ago. Based on customer demand, we added and continue to add integrations to vulnerability scanners, reporting and automation tools, and an automated way to manage live patch feeds in our ePortal to form the latest KernelCare Enterprise edition.
Our solutions protect your Linux systems by:
Live patching reduces your mean time to remediate (MTTR) CVEs since there is no need to wait for a maintenance schedule to do reboots or service restarts.
The automation provided by ePortal allows IT teams to reduce the time it takes them to take new patches through staging and testing, then apply them.
The velocity at which our team builds and releases patches for End of Life distributions and languages allows organizations to get access to them and apply them faster.
Empowering Organizations to Stay Secure and Compliant
TuxCare has delivered patches and bug fixes for various Linux distros for over 10 years.
