SUSE announces a replacement for CentOS and it's called Liberty Linux


CentOS was one of the most acclaimed distros for servers, and one that many companies adopted, a binary fork of RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux), from Red Hat (now owned by IBM), maintained by the community and free. But nevertheless, in an unexpected turn, everything was turned upside down, leaving a large gap that is now to be filled. Liberty Linux from SUSE, is another of the alternatives that join projects like AlmaLinux, Rocky Linux, etc.

The enterprise-grade operating system SUSE Liberty Linux emerged as a new project to create another great alternative to CentOS, but he did it stealthily, without too many fireworks and by surprise for many.

Liberty Linux is a distro that is being developed by SUSE with its own Open Build Service tool, from the binary packages Official Red Hat RPMs (SRPMs). In the case of the kernel, the RHEL kernel will not be used, rather it is based on the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) kernel, but compiled using a configuration to maintain compatibility for RHEL/CentOS.

On the other hand, Liberty Linux, too promises compatibility with SUSE Linux Enterprise Linux and openSUSE too, that is, it has been designed for mixed environments.

Includes interesting solutions like SUSE Manager to facilitate its management and automate many tasks, in addition to having business-grade support (24/7/365 through chat, by email or by phone) and updates, optimization, robustness, stability, security, designed for environments that need high availability (servers, companies,...) and promises to be one of the best alternatives that have emerged at the moment.

Liberty Linux is an idea similar in some ways to CloudLinux, to offer a solution to all users who have been affected by the change in CentOS development, avoiding CentOS Stream.
