EriZone: CentOS 6 EOL: Plan Your Migration to CentOS 7 Now!

Dear EriZone customers! Some of your EriZone VMs are still working on CentOS 6, which will reach its End of Life on November 30th, 2020. This means that no new security or bugfix updates will be released after this date.

You can check this by running the command:

rpm -q centos-release

which will tell you the version installed, e.g.:

centos-release-6-10.el6.centos.12.3.x86_64

If this string contains “centos-release-6-….” instead of “centos-release-7-….”, please contact your EriZone consultant or key account manager soon to estimate and plan your migration. We will provide you a new, clean EriZone CentOS7 VM and import your DB, configurations and customizations. The system requirements remain the same, starting from 4 vCPUs and 8GB RAM for small/medium installations, while including an additional disk with at least the amount of space currently used by /var/erizone.

CentOS (“Community ENTerprise Operating System”) is a free, conservative Linux-clone with long-term support for each major release. Thus, it is ideal for enterprise products, especially if you don’t need the latest graphical user interface functionalities and drivers (we even usually provide VMs without a window manager – the administration is done via console and web interfaces). However, CentOS does not support an in-place upgrade to the next major version, as it does for its commercial counterpart, Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
