ELeve Sua Distribuição

Primeiros Passos Discuta

Atualizações entre Versões Principais

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.

Serviço de Evolução de Pacotes

The beating heart of ELevate is the Serviço de Evolução de Pacotes (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.

Projeto Comunitário

O ELevate é desenvolvido de uma maneira independente de distribuição e é construído como uma ferramenta para todo o ecossistema, não somente para o AlmaLinux. ELevate suporta a migração de/para outras distribuições e é aberto para todos contribuírem e desenvolverem.

O que é o 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.
Isso parece fantástico! Como eu posso contribuir?
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
Isso está pronto para produção?
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.
Que sistemas operacionais o ELevate suporta?
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.
Ao migrar, tudo estará "em ordem"?
Sim. Todos os seus dados, aplicativos e configurações serão mantidos.
Isso é ao vivo ou requer uma reinicialização?
As migrações exigirão que seu sistema seja reiniciado duas vezes.
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.
A Red Hat oferece um conjunto de dados que não é licenciado livremente. Vocês estão usando esse mesmo conjunto de dados?
No. We respect Red Hat’s work and our initial data set was provided by the AlmaLinux OS Foundation with contributions from Oracle.
Sob que licença estão seus metadados?
Os metadados são fornecidos sob uma Licença Apache.
Por que vocês estão suportando a migração para outras distribuições?
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.
