CIQ launches Rocky Linux for CentOS Migration on Google Cloud

CIQ Inc. this week announced a collaboration with Google Cloud which it said will help its customer base accelerate their migrations from CentOS with its new Rocky Linux offerings built for Google Cloud.

According to CIQ, with the “upcoming end-of-life of CentOS 7 on June 30, 2024, many are still evaluating the best path forward to secure and operate their Linux environments. Customers running CentOS must make a decision soon that involves many factors beyond just technical considerations.”

CIQ is partnering with Google Cloud to provide customers with a simple, secure path from CentOS through a new Rocky Linux migration program built exclusively for Google Cloud, a release stated.

Nirav Mehta, senior director of product management, cloud infrastructure solutions at Google Cloud, said, “our customers are asking for help moving on from CentOS to address security, performance and support concerns. Our partnership with CIQ offers customers a viable solution that can help them move quickly and securely to Rocky Linux on Google Cloud without disruption.”
