Supported Platforms and Components

Platform Support

VMware 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.

Each RPM file included with VMware Postgres automatically installs additional operating-system package dependencies as needed. However, no Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) repository packages are required for VMware Postgres.

Network connectivity is required between all PostgreSQL hosts and clients.
