Hi guys, I currently run two CentOS 7.9 servers at Amazon AWS, each running WHM/cPanel - which I use to host all of my client's websites and email on.

Can anyone point me in the right direction on what I might be able to do, or start planning to do, to ensure my hosting services for my clients are future proof and safe? Or is CentOS 7.9 currently the best / only option, and that a new solution will come soon?

I'm mostly concerned with how I would update the OS on these AWS servers without much downtime for my clients. I know this is a more complex question that it at first appears.

Many thanks in advance.

I'm pretty sure that it will be possible to convert a CentOS 8 server to AlmaLinux, so why not start with CentOS 8 right away and convert as soon as it's available?
