Product Overview

1 - ALMA LINUX 8: ENTERPRISE GRADE LINUX WITH EXPECTED END OF LIFE SUPPORT UNTIL 2029

AlmaLinux OS is a Linux distribution that was created by CloudLinux to provide a community-supported, production-grade enterprise operating system that is binary-compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). AlmaLinux continues the good work from CentOS 8.

CentOS was originally derived from Red Hat Enterprise Linux and has maintained a similar level of stability since 2004. CentOS used to be one of the most popular Linux distribution used in data centers globally. Especially because of its long term support (LTS) cycle of at least 10 years.

However, CentOS's life cycle was shortened from 2029 to December 2021 after Red Hat was acquired by IBM. In response, CloudLinux created AlmaLinux to provide a community-supported, production-grade enterprise Linux distribution that is binary-compatible with RHEL and has a life cycle of at least 10 years. AlmaLinux was released on April 27, 2021. End of life support for AlmaLinux is currently scheduled for April 2029, sponsored by CloudLinux and released under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

This image has been prepared and migrated from CentOS 8 with Virtualmin GPL to AlmaLinux 8.5 carefully.

2 - VIRTUALMIN GPL: WEB-BASED VIRTUAL HOSTING CONTROL PANEL. A GREAT OPEN SOURCE ALTERNATIVE FOR CPANEL

Virtualmin is a powerful and flexible web hosting control panel for Linux systems. It is designed to make web hosting easier by providing a simple and easy-to-use interface to manage websites, email accounts, databases, and more. Virtualmin is available in both free open-source (GPL) and paid versions via virtualmin.com.

By using Virtualmin GPL with AlmaLinux, you can manage multiple websites, domains, email accounts, databases, SSL certificates, and much more from a single Web interface.

VirtualMin GPL also includes Webmin. This is a powerful and feature-rich Web-based admin interface for Unix/Linux systems that allows you to manage your server without having to use the command line.
