Get Enterprise Support for Rocky Linux
Adopt the fastest-growing Enterprise Linux with the confidence that you are backed by the leading experts in the industry.
Rocky Linux Is Built to Last
Rocky Linux is an open source operating system widely used in enterprise, cloud, hyperscale, and High Performance Computing environments. It is 100% bug-for-bug compatible with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), and free to use—there are no, and never will be, licensing fees.
With regular updates and a 10-year committed support lifecycle for each major release, Rocky Linux is ideal for use in enterprise environments. It is easy to migrate from CentOS and other RHEL-derived Linux distributions, and it is secure and scalable.
Understood by Experts Who Are on Your Side
If you decide Rocky Linux is right for you, where can you get enterprise-class support and services? Look no further than CIQ, the Founding Sponsor of the Rocky Linux project. Not only did our CEO, Gregory Kurtzer, create Rocky Linux (and its predecessor, CentOS), but also we employ the industry’s leading experts and Linux developers who can help you tackle the most challenging operating system challenges.
The first person you talk with will stay with you through resolution. We don’t route you to a call center or Level 1 support technician who doesn’t have the knowledge to solve your issue.
CIQ, Open Source to the Core
At CIQ, the Open Source Ethos informs all that we do. That’s why we encourage our customers to engage with the Community directly to learn first-hand about the many advantages of Rocky Linux.
