Convert CentOS to an Oracle Linux on Digital Ocean production server



CentOS comes with all the goodies that are provided with RHEL at absolutely free of cost. For this reason, it has been used everywhere in production environments and beloved by system administrators.

On 8th Dec 2020 Red Hat announced that CentOS 8 version will no longer LTS supported and discontinued at the end of 2021 and the rolling version CentOS Stream as the downstream branch of RHEL. It means a rolling version with frequent updates that’s no longer suitable for production workloads.

CentOS 7 will be supported until June 30, 2024. But if you want the most up-to-date RHEL clone in future then you’ll soon be out of luck.

Currently most of the cloud providers support centos 7 and centos stream officially but no official support available for Oracle Linux. If you are planning for the most up-to-date RHEL clone for your server then a recommended alternative is Oracle Linux which is 100% compatible with RHEL. This means the applications and features remain the same for Oracle Linux.

In this video we’ll show you how to convert a CentOS server to an Oracle Linux on Digital Ocean production server. The switch from CentOS to an Oracle Linux went smoothly in our case, However, we cannot guarantee with certainty that the same will be replicated in your case.

Please lets us know your opinion in the comments. How do you feel about this move of Red Hat?
