The set of architectures supported depend on the request of our customers. At this point, you can be sure that amd64 will be supported. But we can easily support armhf, arm64 and i386. If you need another architecture, please subscribe and let us know your requirements.

Limitations of support

Not all packages can be supported by our Extended LTS for Debian 11 service:

  • packages that have already been marked as unsupported by the Debian security/LTS teams are not supported: see list in git repository
  • linux: to cover the whole ELTS lifetime, we are backporting newer kernels from newer Debian release. See our kernel backports instructions.

Note that when you request a quote, we send you back a list of packages that are not supported or that have limitations in their support so that you can take an informed decision.
