Environment

Release : 9.4 10.x

Component : API GATEWAY

Resolution

This is currently being investigated. The decision was made to move to centos 7 a long time ago before this announcement was done  .

GW10 is using centos 7.0 and this will be supported to the end of 2024 .

If this means it will be Redhat is not know yet there are also other alternatives and development may also go to a more container based solution .

As GW 9.4 is running Redhat 6 or centos 6 which EOL already and 9.4 will be EOL later this year  , You have to upgrade to GW10 to be on a supported platform and Centos 7 is still supported to 2024
