Hi Peter,

yes, for RHEL8 (and Centos8 as a result) there are no software 
collections (SCLs) anymore. The functionality of SCLs has been replaced 
by modularity so that is the part of Centos8 you will need to upgrade 
from SCLs in Centos7.

For container images we have some UBI-based images available [1] that 
are accessible without a RHEL subscription under a different EULA [2].
