Mises à jour majeures des versions

It wasn't possible--until now. Move from CentOS 7.x to 8.x version of the RHEL derivative of your choice, or upgrade from 8.x to 9.x within the same derivative. Preserve your applications, your data, and your sanity. Run the most recent version of the OS and software you need.

Service d'évolution des paquets

The beating heart of ELevate is the Service d'évolution des paquets (PES) which allows you to download, customize and even submit new data sets for packages. Users and maintainers can both utilize the PES to help make migrations smooth and easy.

Projet communautaire

ELevate est développé de manière agnostique par rapport aux distributions et est construit comme un outil pour l'ensemble de l'écosystème, pas seulement pour AlmaLinux. ELevate supporte la migration vers/depuis d'autres distributions et est ouvert à la contribution et à l'amélioration de tous.

Qu'est-ce que ELevate ?
ELevate is a project aimed to provide the ability to upgrade between major versions of RHEL-based distributions from 7.x to 8.x and from 8.x to 9.x. It combines Red Hat's Leapp framework with a community-created migration metadata library and service.
Ça a l'air génial. Comment puis-je contribuer ?
First join us in the ~migration Mattermost channel. You can find the tool code in the AlmaLinux GitHub organization and you can add/edit/interact with package metadata at
Est-ce prêt pour la production ?
ELevate has been used to migrate production environments across industries and across the world, but we still advise caution. Every environment is different and unique based on applications and configurations. To avoid any surprises, we highly recommend that you test upgrades scenarios in a virtual machine or sandbox before running a upgrades in production.
Quels systèmes d'exploitation ELevate prend-il en charge ?
Currently, ELevate project supports the following upgrade and migration directions: ELevate scheme CentOS7 -> AlmaLinux, CentOS Stream, EuroLinux, Oracle, Rocky 8 -> AlmaLinux, CentOS Stream, EuroLinux, Rocky 9 * - migration to CentOS Stream 9 is currently in development and will be available later.
** - migration to Oracle Linux 9 is available with the Oracle Leapp utility and will not be supported by ELevate project.
Note: If you use cPanel, we recommend using the cPanel ELevate fork.
La migration sera-t-elle " sur place " ?
Oui. Toutes vos données, applications et paramètres seront conservés.
Est-ce utilisable directement ou nécessite de redémarrer ?
Les migrations nécessiteront deux redémarrages de votre système.
What does the Package Evolution Service (PES) 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 propose un ensemble de données dont la licence n'est pas libre. Utilisez-vous ce même ensemble de données ?
No. We respect Red Hat’s work and our initial data set was provided by the AlmaLinux OS Foundation with contributions from Oracle.
Sous quelle licence vos métadonnées sont-elles placées ?
Les métadonnées sont fournies sous une licence Apache.
Pourquoi supportez-vous la migration vers d'autres distributions ?
Our contributors have been part of the RHEL ecosystem for a very long time, and we recognized that 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.
