After several months of the release of RHEL 8, CentOS 8 is finally available. In this post, we will try to explain to you what it is and what this new version will bring us.

CentOS the binary clone of Red Hat Enterprise Linux

It is unlikely that you will not know what CentOS is by now, but I will tell you in a few words. CentOS is a Linux distribution that is built from Red Hat Enterprise Linux binaries. This makes it perfectly compatible with the latter which gives us a robust, reliable and stable system for our home or enterprise servers.

However, there is a small downside, and that is that we will not have the commercial support of RHEL, but it is also completely free to use it. As I said, it makes it ideal for small to medium-sized projects.

The project has been with us for more than 15 years. An age that allows it to distinguish itself as a solid and mature project and has the main objective of providing a free enterprise operating system, easy to use and affordable for everyone.

CentOS 8 based on RHEL 8

As I mentioned, CentOS is a binary level clone of RHEL. Therefore, CentOS 8 is based on RHEL 8. Then, we will be able to have all the news of the Red Hat system in a very easy and simple way.

Some of the new features of RHEL 8 that are also available in CentOS 8 are the following:

  • Support for OpenSSL 1.1.1 and TLS 1.3 cryptographic standards.
  • Support for Red Hat’s container tool for creating, running, and sharing applications in containers.
  • Improved support for ARM and Power architectures, SAP, and real-time applications.

On the other hand, there are other important novelties such as:

  • Wayland is the default screen server.
  • NTP replaced by Chrony.
  • Bloat: IdM (Identity Management Domain), Cockpit.

These are very technical novelties to understand. In general, we will find updates of all kinds such as PHP, Apache, Nginx or Java. Besides Python and the GCC or G++ compilers.

Now all that’s left to do is download it and start working with it. Of course, CentOS 8 will play an important role on our site as usual.
