[Reproduction Path] What operations were performed that caused the issue
I want to redeploy a production environment for TiDB and would like to ask what potential risks exist when deploying on Ubuntu 18.04. Can it be used in production? I noticed that the official website does not recommend using it in production. Has anyone deployed it before? Any suggestions?

Red Hat has more practical experience.

Do you recommend the Red Hat Enterprise Linux series?

Officially supported operating systems and their corresponding versions are all acceptable.

Is the impact on production significant for those systems that do not guarantee enterprise-level production quality requirements? This is the main concern.

| username: 啦啦啦啦啦 | Original post link

Regardless of the impact, the production system must be deployed in the safest way to avoid creating problems for ourselves in the future.

Okay, I’m also afraid of creating problems for myself, so I’ll choose a system that meets production requirements.
