CentOS 6 End of Life

As of 30th November, 2020, the CentOS 6 operating system is End of Life. This means it will receive no further updates, including security patches.

If your virtual server or hosting account still runs on CentOS 6 or older, we would strongly recommend developing and implementing a mitigation plan as soon as possible. This can be by migrating to a newer operating system or putting appropriate security measures in place.

We have developed a load balancer as a service offering which can be used to protect CentOS 6 environments that need to be maintained for example if the software stack is not compatible with more modern operating systems. This uses a CentOS 7 / 8 load balancer to accept traffic, provides built in SSL / HTTPS and uses the LAN network to access specific applications and services which massively reduces the potential attack surface. We will continue to develop this by adding further performance and security features.

We can also provide bespoke load balancer solutions using CentOS 7 / 8 virtual servers along with web/application servers, database servers and more which can provide a variety of features and security measures such as high availability, IP failover, caching, brute force / vulnerability detection, redirection and more.
