Pivotal Postgres is currently supported only on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) version 7 and CentOS 7. This applies both to the core database software, as well as client components such as ODBC and JDBC.
Each RPM file included with Pivotal Postgres automatically installs additional operating-system package dependencies as needed. However, no Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) repository packages are required for Pivotal Postgres.
Network connectivity is required between all host systems in the PostgreSQL cluster.
JDBC support requires Java 8 or higher on each client machine.
