Rocky Linux 9.2 / 8.8 Enterprise Grade Services and Capabilities

As the founding support and services sponsor and partner of Rocky Linux, CIQ is pleased to announce that we have certified our suite of software products on recently released Rocky Linux 9.2 and Rocky Linux 8.8, and we are also offering enterprise grade professional support for both new versions. 

CIQ is committed to certifying our entire suite of products and advancing our customers’ success by supporting the latest releases of Rocky Linux as soon as possible after they are shared by the Rocky Enterprise Software Foundation (RESF) project. This commitment enables our customers to quickly take advantage of the new features, bug fixes, and enhancements in the latest Rocky Linux releases.

We would like to congratulate the Rocky Linux and Peridot teams for rapidly building, deploying, and testing the newest versions of Rocky Linux to ensure that it is the most stable enterprise operating system possible. The quality and speed of these releases is a tribute to the community of supporters and a benefit to all Rocky Linux users. 

CIQ’s newly certified products include Warewulf, our cluster management solution, and Apptainer, our application container system, as well as the recently launched Fuzzball, which combines the best of enterprise tooling with the latest in modern Performance Intensive Computing (PIC) technology. We also certified images available in the Mountain repo-as-a-service offering, launched earlier this month

In addition, supported cloud images for Rocky Linux 9.2 and 8.8 are immediately available for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Google Cloud with Amazon Web Services coming soon. 

Our long-term support (LTS) for Rocky Linux 9.2, which includes support for the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS), is now available to CIQ customers for an additional 18 months. It provides assurance to Rocky Linux 9.2 users that a trusted partner will be there to provide support for a guaranteed time frame.
