AlmaLinux Support Services provide a convenient tool to migrate your current Enterprise Linux distribution to AlmaLinux OS and our Premium package offers support for additional Enterprise Linux distributions as well. For older distributions, you may be interested in our End-of-life Linux support services.
The AlmaLinux team continuously monitors critical Linux kernel vulnerabilities and security concerns associated with the AlmaLinux OS. We release patches for security risks and general maintenance issues as soon as they are completed and tested
We maintain a stable testing repository that all patches and updates are tested against. Before a package is released into the production repository, we run several processes to verify that our update has zero unintended consequences.
The AlmaLinux team supports all deployment models so you can confidently plan and deploy your infrastructure based on your needs.
What if we require custom patching or bug-fixing for a certain application?
There are NO licensing fees associated with AlmaLinux OS and no additional licensing fees associated with Linux Support Services.
