Introducing AlmaLinux ELevate

AlmaLinux today announced the introduction of their new feature ELevate which allows you to migrate between major versions of RHEL based distributions from 7.x to 8.x. This was previously not possible under CentOS and had came up during the CentOS 6.x end of life and in 2024 will come up again in the CentOS 7.x end of life. Until ELevate the only way to move to the latest version of RHEL based distributions was to deploy a new server with the desired version then configure and migrate everything to the new server.

How AlmaLinux ELevate accomplishes this feat is by utilizing Red Hat’s Leapp framework with a community created library and service for the migration set required for it. ELevate relies on the package evolution service (PES) which allows you to download, customize and submit new data sets for packages. This will allow maintainers and users alike make migrations smooth and easy. ELevate is currently under development and recommends you test your migration scenarios before attempting it. That being said let’s take a quick look at migrating a stock CentOS 7.x Hawk Host cloud compute to AlmaLinux 8.x

We thought this would be a great opportunity to move to PHP 7.4 before the holiday season starts.

Advanced DDOS Protection in Los Angeles CA and Dallas TX!

If you run a website long enough, eventually you’re going to face an issue related to a DDOS attack. DDOS attacks can be frustrating, financially impactful, and make inexperienced webmasters feel hopeless when trying to resolve the problem. Companies like Cloudflare and Sucuri have made it easier for the average user to protect their sites from attacks, and while we do recommend our clients utilize those services to help protect their sites, we also saw a need to introduce our own DDOS protection for clients. As a result we are pleased to announce advanced DDOS protection is now available for customers on our shared, semi-dedicated, and cloud compute plans in our Dallas TX USA and Los Angeles CA USA locations!
