ELeve su distribución

Acerca de

Actualizaciones de versiones principales

It wasn't possible--until now. Easily migrate between major versions of RHEL-based distributions from 7.x to 8.x. Preserve your applications, your data, and your sanity. Run the most recent version of the OS and software you need.

Servicio de evolución de paquetes

El corazón de ELevate es el Servicio de evolución de paquetes (PES, siglas en inglés), que permite descargar, personalizar e incluso enviar conjuntos de datos nuevos para cada paquete. Usuarios y responsables de mantenimiento pueden servirse del PES para ayudar a crear migraciones fluidas y sencillas.

Proyecto a escala comunitaria

ELevate is developed in a distribution agnostic way and is built as a tool for the whole ecosystem, not just AlmaLinux. ELevate supports migrating to/from other distributions and is open for all to contribute to and enhance.

Preguntas frecuentes
¿Qué es ELevate?
ELevate is a project aimed to provide the ability to migrate between major versions of RHEL-based distributions from 7.x to 8.x. It combines Red Hat's Leapp framework with a community created library and service for the migration metadata set required for it.
Suena genial. ¿Cómo puedo colaborar?
First join us at #migration Mattermost channel. You can find the tool code here: https://github.com/AlmaLinux/leapp-repository/tree/almalinux and you can add/edit/interact with package metadata at https://pes.almalinux.org.
Is this ready for production?
YMMV. Every environment is different and unique based on applications and configurations. Since this is still under development, to avoid any surprises, we highly recommend that you test migrations scenarios in a VM or sandbox before running a migration in production.
¿Cuáles sistemas operativos admite ELevate?
Currently ELevate provides Leapp data for migration from CentOS 7 to the following OS:
  • AlmaLinux OS 8
  • CentOS Stream 8
  • Oracle Linux 8
  • Rocky Linux 8
Will migration be "in-place"?
Sí. Se conservarán todos sus datos, aplicaciones y configuraciones.
¿El proceso es directo o necesita reiniciar?
Las migraciones requieren dos reinicios de su sistema.
What does the Package Evolution Service do?
The Package Evolution Service stores package migration metadata. Metadata answers questions about how packages evolve between major distribution releases. PES supports several classes of rules for packages such as added, removed, renamed, split, merged, and so on. The service also allows everyone to improve the data by adding new actions or even create a custom dataset for packages from third-party or private repositories.
Red Hat offers a data set which is non-freely licensed. Are you using this same data set?
No. We respect Red Hat’s work and our initial data set was provided by the AlmaLinux Foundation and contributions from Oracle.
¿Con qué licencia se han publicado los metadatos?
Hemos publicado los metadatos en virtud de la licencia Apache.
Why are you supporting migration to other distributions?
The CentOS ecosystem is a very large and diverse community. We’ve developed this project in good faith in the hope that everyone in the community can use and contribute to, no matter which distro you prefer. That’s the open source way.
