In an effort to be as proactive as possible, GoGrid has officially notified select customers of the removal (End of Life – EoL) of two specific GoGrid images. The users that were notified are ones that are actively using the images. On 2/9/10, GoGrid will be removing the following images from the GoGrid image repository:
- CentOS – CentOS 5.1 (64-bit) w/ Apache 2.2
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux – RHEL 5.1 (64-bit) w/ Apache 2.2
I’m sure that some of you will have questions about this. In anticipation of this, I have compiled some quick Q&A’s:
Question: What does the removal of these images mean?
Answer: Simply that after the removal date, they will no longer appear within the GoGrid Image Selection widget.
Question: I have server(s) deployed that use these images? Will they continue to function?
Answer: Yes, there is no change to how your server(s) will function if they are using one of these EoL-ed images. Just be sure that you keep everything current within those servers.
