Hivelocity, leading Private Cloud and Dedicated Server solutions provider, is pleased to announce their premium custom server options now include AlmaLinux OS. As an open-source Linux distribution built for and around the CloudLinux community, AlmaLinux offers users a stable, supported, and free, enterprise-grade OS alternative to distributions like Fedora and Red Hat. The spiritual successor of CentOS, AlmaLinux promises the same functionality and compatibility of its predecessor but with the ongoing support of the experts behind CloudLinux. 

“At Hivelocity, we’re all about giving our customers the tools they need to succeed,” says Nate Kennison, DevOps Engineer at Hivelocity. “By offering a wider variety of RHEL compatible Linux distributions, like AlmaLinux, we’re making it easier for our customers to build and maintain systems that best serve the needs of their business. In an industry that’s ever changing, it’s important our customers feel they always have access to the latest and greatest options available.”

Launched in Q1 of 2021, AlmaLinux is an RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) fork designed to fill the gaps left after CentOS Linux development was terminated back in December of 2020. Featuring a 1 to 1 binary compatible fork of RHEL 8, and promising continued support through at least 2029, AlmaLinux offers users an ongoing alternative to environments built with or around the CentOS distribution of Linux. Whether you’re an existing CentOS user or simply someone seeking a free and stable alternative to Red Hat, AlmaLinux might be the solution you’ve been waiting for.

Looking to upgrade from a previous CentOS distribution? 

With AlmaLinux, upgrading from CentOS is easy and practically instantaneous. Featuring zero downtime and requiring minimal investments of time and energy, switching distributions has never been easier. With CloudLinux committing $1Million annually in support, users can rest easy knowing their systems and customers are in the hands of true Linux experts.

By combining AlmaLinux with Hivelocity’s premium dedicated server solutions though, you can apply this same level of industry-expertise to your entire hosting solution. With nearly 20 years of experience, Hivelocity is the hosting provider you can rely on. Whether you’re in need of colocation, managed server hosting, or an entirely custom-built infrastructure, Hivelocity has the right solution for your organization’s needs. With their new hourly billing options and public RESTful API, managing a bare metal solution through Hivelocity can be handled as easily and conveniently as the cloud.
