No, you will continue running CentOS®. We will just continue updating packages with security fixes.
As mentioned above, there is no OS migration, just a change in repository location. This can be done in-line, with no downtime, or any performance degradation.
As soon as we find or develop a new patch, we apply it to the appropriate package, listed above. Before each package goes into the production repository, we run several testing processes. We also maintain a stable beta repository that we use for testing. Our repository will go live on Jun 1, 2020.
