Atlantic.Net Introduces Rocky Linux as a New Cloud VPS Operating System

Rocky Linux Cloud VPS Hosting is now available at all seven data center locations!

ORLANDO, FLA. (November 10, 2021) – Atlantic.Net, a leading cloud services provider, today introduced Rocky Linux as a new Cloud Server operating system for all cloud VPS customers. Rocky Linux is an important release for the majority of customers that rely on CentOS, as CentOS has announced they are moving up the timeline for ending CentOS 8 support from the original date of December 31, 2029, to a new date of December 31, 2021.

“We are a strong believer in open-source solutions, and we always strive to support the community with free, open-source software,” said Marty Puranik, CEO and Founder of Atlantic.Net. “Offering Rocky Linux in our Cloud will allow our customers to migrate their workloads from CentOS to a fully compatible operating system that will continue to be free and fully supported for the long term.”

Rocky Linux 8.4 64-bit is available at all our data center locations in Orlando, New York, Ashburn, Toronto, San Francisco, Dallas, and London.
