ELS is a separate support channel and our on-demand images are standard server entitlements only, without the ability to use additional paid support channels, like ELS. Customers who intend to continue using RHEL 6 after the product retirement with full product support from Red Hat must migrate to RHEL 6 using the Red Hat Cloud Access program in order to support the add-on for ELS.
If the customer just wants to run RHEL 6, without the full add-on support, the standard server entitlement for the on-demand images is sufficient entitlement to run RHEL 6 without the add-on for ELS. Without ELS, there will be no access to the Red Hat Update Infrastructure RHEL 6 repositories, so customers who choose to do continue to use the images will need to sync the repositories prior to retirement to continue to have access to the binaries.
