Transition from CentOS 7 with CloudLinux

As technology evolves and operating systems age, running CentOS 7 on your hosting server introduces a series of challenges that can impact your infrastructure’s security, performance, and compliance. Understanding these challenges is the first step towards making an informed decision about the future of your server environment.

Key Challenges of Continuing with CentOS 7

End of Life (EOL)
With CentOS 7 full updates ceasing in August 2020 and maintenance updates ending in June 2024, the absence of security patches or feature updates post‑EOL poses significant risks.
Security Vulnerabilities
Emerging security threats could leave your server compromised without timely OS patches.
Software Compatibility
The aging OS may not support newer versions of applications and dependencies, limiting your access to the latest features and improvements.
Compliance Risks
Running an unsupported OS might violate industry standards and compliance requirements.
Performance Issues
Missing out on performance enhancements present in newer OS versions could result in decreased server efficiency.
Limited Support
Decreased community and third‑party support for CentOS 7 as focus shifts to newer releases.
Migration Challenges
Postponing an upgrade complicates the migration process due to significant changes in system and application configurations.
