What will be the next free and up-to-date operating system supported by Vertica?

edited August 27 in General Discussion

The company wants something that is more up-to-date, with newer packages, a new kernel, and free, rhel flavored for development purposes.

After reading: https://www.vertica.com/docs/12.0.x/HTML/Content/Authoring/SupportedPlatforms/MCandServer.htm?zoom_highlight=rhel
It seems like all operating systems except RHEL are quite old, reached their End of Standard Support/EOL, or are near End of Standard Support/EOL:

RHEL:
Amazon Linux 2 -> 30.06.2023 (EOL)
RHEL 7 / Centos 7 / Oracle Linux 7 -> quite old, only maintenance (Standard Support already reached, 2 years ago: 2020-08-06, only maintenance updates until: 2024-06-30)
openSUSE Leap 42.3 -> Jul 1st 2019 (Reached EOL)

Even deb family looks quite bad:
Debian 10.x -> 08.2022
Ubuntu 18.x -> 04.2023 (eol is 2028)

Will you support Rocky Linux or Alma Linux? It looks like overall you probably won't support any os that is free from RHEL family.

    With no commitment, Vertica will add Rocky and Alma as supported operating systems soon.
