“Across the HPC and Cloud landscape we have customers that depend on and use CentOS on a daily basis. CentOS allows organisations to freely innovate on an open and stable operating system. HPC in particular is affected by the EOL announcement, with CentOS having been broadly adopted across numerous sites for HPC services. Customers need to have the choice – there’s mission critical applications that need commercial support as well as environments where research, prototyping and evaluation are being conducted, and where innovation higher up the stack is being performed. We believe that open alternatives drive this innovation, which is why we welcome Rocky as a great viable alternative to RHEL.”
