Episode 7 – ELevate

Remaining on legacy Linux distributions can lead to additional security risks as time goes on, and migrating to a newer and better supported distribution can be a very difficult endeavor for most administrators. In this episode, Jay and Joao are joined by Jack from AlmaLinux, and we talk about ELevate – a tool that can be used to migrate from a distribution in the Enterprise Linux family to another Enterprise Linux distribution. This helps alleviate some of the burden of distro migration, and as a community project it’s also a great project to get started with contributing to an open-source project.
