In December 2020, you might have seen an article from CentOS about shifting their focus towards CentOS stream, which is the upstream version of the RHEL. CentOS also mentioned that the version 8 would be EOL (end of life) by the end of the 2021. This means that it will no longer receive any updated fixes from it’s upstream version of RHEL.
A few days after this announcement, Rocky Linux was announced by the CentOS founder, Gregory Kurtzeras, as a 100% bug-for-bug compatible with RHEL. The Rocky Linux project quickly gained so much of attention, and also got sponsors from the cloud vendors like AWS, Google Cloud and Microsoft. We wanted to take this opportunity and write an article about CentOS vs Rocky Linux Benchmark with PostgreSQL.
