Release 7.2 - RHEL5_64 being deprecated ?

Postby liverpoolfcfan » Tue Apr 17, 2012 7:58 am

In the release notes for 7.2 RHEL 5 is now showing as being deprecated after 7.2
Is this true or an error ?
Red Hat has committed support for RHEL 5 through 2017

Yeah I saw it there too...was really hoping I wouldn't. Would have expected support for 5.x to stick around a lot longer.

We weren't talking about ZCS 5.x but RHEL 5.x.

With great sorrow, yup. Guess we'll be moving to RHEL 6 sooner then we had planned.

This seems crazy that they would deprecate the industry's most widely used platform so early. It will cause a lot of grief.

...seems odd, but who knows when 8 will be released and what specific frameworks it will need.

Hi Folks,
Painful, I know. There are some really good improvements in RHEL6 (tickless timer, dynamic hugepages) That improve performance and scaling of Zimbra when compared to RHEL5. Great work by RedHat IMO, including these capabilities in their Linux distro!
When Zimbra 8 ships (this year) we'll be supporting 3 major versions of Zimbra at the same time. This creates a huge support and testing matrix for us with all the distros and versions within these distros that we were supporting. To help us slim this down to put more emphasis on quality/stability, not to mention Zimbra just runs better on RHEL6, we made the decision to reduce the number of versions across the distros we are supporting in Zimbra 8.
I hope this helps at least explain what we're doing.
Thanks!
