Effortless migration from CentOS to RHEL with Adfinis Professional Service

As you’re probably aware, starting June 30th, 2024, CentOS Linux 7 will reach end of life and will no longer be supported. A migration to the platform on which CentOS is built, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), is the easiest and most affordable option. Running and further developing the platform can be done with minimal training. Our Adfinis Professional Service will get you up to speed in no time at all while providing you with all the knowledge you need to run the system on your own. Or, if you prefer, we’ll run it for you.

Why migrate and why RHEL is the most sensible option

When CentOS reaches its end of life, keeping systems will be a security risk. To avoid that, you’ll want to start thinking about migrating sooner rather than later. RHEL, on which CentOS is built, is the most sensible option for on-premises as well as cloud environments.

Red Hat has made migrating easy with the Convert2RHEL tool and learning to operate the system can be done with the least amount of training. However, if you’re looking for a partner to migrate your systems, we can help you with planning, migrating to, and running RHEL. We’ll ensure you hit the ground running.

Why is Adfinis the partner you are looking for


You need a migration expert in CentOS to RHEL

We’ve undertaken projects with CentOS and RHEL. Plus, we’ve done migrations before. We understand how CentOS works, what you need for the migration, and why migrating to RHEL just makes sense.

You want a tailored solution

We’re a Red Hat partner, meaning we can support you in the migration, optimizing, and running RHEL. But since we are agnostic and focused on open-source, we can help you regardless of how your ecosystem is built.


You Need a partner to introduce you to the essentials.

You need a partner that supports you in the migration and shows you how you’ll work best with the new system. We can do that, and we won’t leave until you’re all settled in. However, if you want us to run the system, that’s also possible.

Why RHEL is also the best option from a price perspective

CentOS was free to use, but maintaining your CentOS now is more expensive than migrating to and running RHEL, due to security and performance issues that will emerge after June 30, 2024. Also, research firm IDC has calculated that the purchase of RHEL subscriptions versus using a free but unsupported OS results in a greater return on investment, with a 540% three-year ROI. Even though running CentOS after its end of life sounds promising cost-wise, it probably isn’t. Let us help you.

How we’ll help you migrate and run RHEL

To offer you the right services, we need to know your specific challenges and wishes. But we can definitely help you with:

SUSE_Rancher talk to us Adfinis

Check-in: talk to us

As each organization has a different CentOS starting point, we’d love to chat with you first. We’ll assess your current position and preferred destination. We’ll also show you what the migration will look like, what you can expect from us and how it affects your organization. And the best part? This exploration is entirely free of charge.


Plan: migration workshop

During the Migration Workshop, we’ll dive deep into your CentOS setup. We’ll talk techie to techie to assess what you have running now and what steps we need to take to migrate seamlessly to RHEL. Of course, we’ll share what we can do to help you and give you all the options for a smooth transition to RHEL.

Build: vertical prototype

It’s time to get to migrating, but before we go live, we’ll start by testing to see if we’ve got everything we need. Even though working on RHEL requires minimal training, we’ll also assess what additional knowledge you’ll need to work with the new system.


Build: getting RHEL ready for use

If all goes well when testing, we’re going to build the system based on design, goals, integrations, and personal preferences. Apart from implementation and integrations, we’ll help with security, compliance, and automation. We’ll tell you exactly how we do it, so you can keep building in the future.

Run: Managed Services

We’ll adjust our services based on your needs and you just might need someone to run RHEL for you. Therefore, we also offer RHEL as a Managed Service. We’ll adjust our services to your needs, such as helpdesk services, first to third level support and fully managed solutions.
