Download now

Transitioning between Linux distributions can present challenges, but understanding these differences is the first step. This guide is designed for customers considering a migration from Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) based distributions – including CentOS, AlmaLinux and Rocky Linux- to Ubuntu in a public cloud environment.

When moving between a RHEL-based distribution and Ubuntu, it’s essential to consider a range of factors. This includes the release cadence and licensing model, package management, service configuration, security posture and other system-level differences.

Public clouds add another layer of complexity, with integration, tooling, and cloud-specific features playing a critical role in the migration process.

This guide covers the following topics:

  • Key differences between RHEL and Ubuntu for enterprise administrators
  • Enterprise security and support model
  • Migration strategy guide
  • Administration cheat sheet
  • Example migration
