Red Hat Enterprise Linux has a lifecycle of at least seven years for major releases, and typically has a new major release every two or three years.
This means that there are three supported Red Hat Enterprise Linux major releases at any given time. Customers can extend the lifecycle of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, up to ten years, with Extended Lifecycle Support. In addition, it is possible for customers to stay on a particular minor release for up to 24 months with Extended Update Support. This gives plenty of options to our customers for planning the lifecycle of Red Hat Enterprise Linux deployments at their premises.
In this session you will learn about:
- Red Hat's support policies
- The lifecycle of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, a deep-dive
