О проекте

Основные обновления версии

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.

Служба эволюции пакетов (Package Evolution Service)

The beating heart of ELevate is the Служба эволюции пакетов (Package Evolution Service) (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.

Проект сообщества

ELevate разработан независимо от дистрибутива и создан как инструмент для всей экосистемы, а не только для AlmaLinux. ELevate поддерживает миграцию в/из других дистрибутивов и открыт для всех, кто хочет внести свой вклад и улучшить его.

Что такое 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.
Выглядит потрясающе. Как я могу помочь?
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
Это готовый проект?
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.
Какие операционные системы поддерживает ELevate?
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.
Миграция будет «на месте»?
Да. Все ваши данные, приложения и настройки будут сохранены.
Режим Live или требуется перезагрузка?
Во время миграции вашу систему потребуется дважды перезагрузить.
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 предлагает набор данных по несвободной лицензии. Вы используете тот же набор данных?
No. We respect Red Hat’s work and our initial data set was provided by the AlmaLinux OS Foundation with contributions from Oracle.
Под какой лицензией находятся ваши метаданные?
Метаданные предоставляются по Apache License.
Почему вы поддерживаете миграцию на другие дистрибутивы?
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.
