Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) recently announced significant changes to the CentOS
development roadmap, including the accelerated end-of-life for CentOS 8.
These changes affect Schneider Electric’s Data Center Expert, Data Center Operation, and EcoStruxure IT Advisor. No further operating system updates will be available for CentOS 8 after December 31, 2021.
We are listening closely to the CentOS community and collaborating with customers to determine
the best options for migrating to a next-generation operating system for Data Center Expert, Data
Center Operation, and EcoStruxure IT Advisor.
We remain committed to supporting customers on these software products. Once we determine the
next generation operating system for Data Center Expert, Data Center Operation and EcoStruxure
IT Advisor, we will provide updates here and in the EcoStruxure IT forum.
If you have any questions, please submit a ticket or reach out to your Schneider Electric sales
representative or account manager.

Note: CentOS 8 end of life does not affect the EcoStruxure IT Gateway appliance. The Gateway appliance runs on CentOS 7 which is supported until June 2024. Future operating system support for the Gateway appliance is being investigated.
