CloudLinux - Supported systems and devices
Getting started with CloudLinux OS

Supported Hardware

CloudLinux OS runs on all the hardware supported by RHEL/CentOS 5.x, 6.x, and 7.x.

There might be exceptions for hardware that require binary drivers that do not have any open source alternatives. At this moment we are aware of only one such case.


Supported Operating Systems

CloudLinux OS can be installed on new Linux servers or can convert existing CentOS/RHEL servers with a single script without any customer configs or data changes. CloudLinux’s CentOS-like interface alleviates the learning curve and makes administrators feel instantly at home.

To deploy CloudLinux OS:

  • To convert existing CentOS/RHEL 5.x, 6.x or 7.x servers to CloudLinux OS - see "Installing on CentOS server" article.
    Note: if you are converting Hyper-V servers, make sure you upgrade to latest CentOS 5.11, CentOS 6.7 or CentOS 7.2 first.
