When a Linux distribution reaches end of life, it simply means that the distribution’s vendor will no longer deliver security updates or patches, meaning it becomes significantly more risky to continue using that distribution – prompting organizations to migrate to a new distribution or purchase an extended support solution like TuxCare’s ELS.

Red Hat will end security support for CentOS 7 on June 30th, 2024. At that point, this distribution will officially be in its end-of-life stage.

You can still use this distribution, but official security support from the vendor will not be available – so you are at risk of vulnerability exploits unless you migrate to a new, supported distribution (like AlmaLinux) or get an extended support solution like TuxCare’s ELS.

Stable CentOS will reach end of life, but you can still use CentOS Stream – which is an unstable release that’s only suitable if you build your own OS, if you’re running it in a single desktop environment, or if you can handle downtime. Users who run RHEL-certified applications on CentOS Stream risk losing support and breaking compliance.

TuxCare recommends AlmaLinux as an ideal enterprise-grade replacement for all CentOS versions. AlmaLinux is a stable, reliable, modern Linux distribution that is 100% owned by a completely independent 501c-6 nonprofit foundation and will never reach the same fate as CentOS. In addition, AlmaLinux comes with an innovative global community and has already been chosen by several top organizations around the globe as their go-to Linux distribution.
