Hawk Host brings extensive knowledge of web hosting and software development for a variety of cloud hosting customers running on the Linux operating system.

"As both an elected board member of AlmaLinux and a lead on Hawk Host's infrastructure team, I've seen firsthand from both perspectives the value AlmaLinux provides. Here at Hawk Host, we offer AlmaLinux as our recommended OS option on our cloud compute plans, meant to be the drop-in replacement for most customers who previously would have chosen CentOS. AlmaLinux has also introduced other useful tools, such as ELevate, which allows users to upgrade between major versions of their OS - a massive technological improvement over CentOS. It's an exciting step for Hawk Host to join AlmaLinux as a sponsor, and we will continue to support the development of AlmaLinux as it is further embraced by the open-source community."
