Stable 64-Bit Linux Distributions are required for best performance. 32 bit binaries will not be provided in the future.
If a new edition is issued, we support this new release within 90 days. This way, you do not have to update as the OS is released.
The following distributions are supported for 64-bit (x64):
- RedHat Enterprise
