Do I need to upgrade?
Choosing when to upgrade requires some thought. You certainly will want to upgrade if your Linux distribution is no longer supported. You may also wish to update your distribution if it is nearing the end of its support life cycle, or if you need some of the new features, performance, or security that often comes with new releases. But you don’t have to make that choice alone. Linux Global offers Linux upgrade services to relieve the load off your shoulders and help you make the right decision for your business.
Choosing a distribution
Different distribution release support life cycles vary widely from as little as 6 months to as long as 10 years. The RHEL/CentOS/Scientific Linux releases are generally supported for 10 years. Ubuntu long term releases are supported for 5 years, but their intermediate releases are only 6 months to a year. Debian releases are somewhat dynamic because it is community driven, so it is not as ideal for a production environment. Fedora releases are similar to the intermediate Ubuntu releases and are supported for only a short time after release. In general, for production environments, you want to stick to the RHEL/CentOS/Scientific Linux releases, or the Ubuntu long term support releases. Which distribution is best for you will often depend on your use and project requirements. Linux Global works closely with you to discover the needs of your business, and our Linux upgrade services are here to help you arrive at the choice that’s best for you.
