Switching between Linux distributions can be challenging, but understanding the variances is key. This guide is designed to help customers planning to transition from Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)-based distributions like CentOS, AlmaLinux, and Rocky Linux to Ubuntu in a public cloud setup.

When moving from a RHEL-based distribution to Ubuntu on Microsoft Azure, it’s crucial to consider factors such as release timing, licensing, package management, service setup, security measures, and other system-level disparities. Public cloud environments introduce additional complexity, with integrations, tools, and cloud-specific functionalities being pivotal in the migration journey.

Download our whitepaper to learn more about why CentOS users are choosing Ubuntu as their operating system of choice for their systems and workloads on Microsoft Azure.

In this whitepaper, we will provide:

  • An overview of the key differences between RHEL and Ubuntu
  • A strategy guide on how to migrate to Ubuntu on the public cloud
  • A cloud migration checklist
