No, you will continue to rely on your preferred operating system. We will just continue updating the packages for the operating system you love with security fixes that keep your OS environment safe and secure.

CloudLinux continuously monitors critical Linux kernel vulnerabilities and security concerns associated with the OS covered by your Extended Lifecycle Support contract. We release patches for security risks and general maintenance issues as soon as they are completed and tested.

Before each package goes into the production repository, we run several testing processes to verify that our update has zero unintended consequences. We also maintain a stable beta repository that we use for testing.
KernelCare would automatically apply our patches live in memory while your systems are in operation. However, if you prefer to patch manually, you can simply continue to do so using yum as you usually would.
