UW-IT Standard Managed Servers: Changing to CentOS Operating System Nov. 18
To take advantage of cost savings and to adopt an operating system commonly used in commercially provided cloud products, UW-IT is changing the default Unix operating system for its Standard Managed Server service from RedHat Enterprise Linux version 6 to CentOS version 6 on November 18. The switch will not require a server reboot and will be seamless to users. Customers of UW-IT’s self-managed Standard Hosted Server service also can take advantage of CentOS, as UW-IT will offer instructions and consulting for IT staff interested in the change; contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
