In the year 2020 the lifecycle of CentOS®, RHEL®, Oracle® Linux, Scientific Linux and EuroLinux systems in the sixth version has ended. The problem of lack of support, namely updates and other security patches, affect various organizations around the world. An easy and noninvasive solution to it is the new product from EuroLinux – EuroELS, which is a prolonged support for Enterprise Linux 6 systems. Thanks to this, it is possible to restore and maintain the security of these systems until at least the first half of 2024.
Updates and patches are an integral part of every software. Lack of thereof significantly contributes to decreasing of its security. This applies not only to operating systems themselves, but also to applications and stored data. Many organizations do not upgrade to a higher version after the system’s end-of-life. This process could be cost-intensive or even impossible to execute, for instance, in situations where one still uses the software operating only with the 6. version. The EuroELS product easily solves the above-mentioned issue.
