SUSE Offers CentOS 7 Support with Liberty Linux Lite

Jun 20, 2024

SUSE's Liberty Linux support offering now includes CentOS 7, which means businesses won't be forced to migrate those servers for some time.

SUSE is never one to back down from offering support for distributions other than its own, in-house, enterprise-grade operating system. Case in point, SUSE Liberty Linux has offered support for RHEL since the early 2020s and now they're extending that support to CentOS 7.

The support offered protects CentOS 7 from future vulnerabilities by providing updates and security patches.

According to Rick Spencer, GM of Business Critical Linux, SUSE, "Open source technologies are the cornerstone of innovation for enterprises, fostering collaboration, agility, and cost-effectiveness."

Spenser continues, "Ensuring CentOS 7 users have a secure, enterprise-ready, future-proof Linux solution is important to SUSE, and we are delighted to be in a position to support CentOS 7 users as they face this uncertain and risky situation."

CentOS 7 reaches EOL on June 30, 2024, and there are a large number of businesses that continue to rely on the open-source operating system. Thanks to SUSE Liberty Linux Lite, those businesses won't have to concern themselves with migration.

The cost of SUSE Liberty Linux Lite looks like this: 100 subscriptions for $2,500 or 1000 subscriptions for $20,000.
