Operating systems approved for vertica community 9.x cluster

Hello

I would like to know what are the approved operating systems for a vertica cluster 9.1.0 community version.
When I download the Vertica installation I only have the following options: Red Hat 6/7, SUSE, Debian and Ubuntu. Does this mean that it only runs on those operating systems?
Would you like to use Oracle Linux 7.x, is it homologated? In this case, which installation should I download is Red Hat?

Thank you very much, I await your support ..

    Hi,

    Here is a link to the doc page that displays the "Supported Operating Systems and Operating System Versions" for Vertica:

    https://my.vertica.com/docs/9.1.x/HTML/index.htm#Authoring/SupportedPlatforms/MCandServer.htm

    Note: Vertica supports Oracle Enterprise Linux (OEL) versions 6.7, 6.8, 6.9, 7.3, 7.4, but only the Red Hat Compatible Kernels. Vertica is not supported on unbreakable kernels (kernels with a uel suffix).

    So you'd want the "Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and 7" rpm from the downloads page.
