Compatibility Matrix

Supported OS Versions for Management Server

This section lists the operating systems that are supported for running CloudStack Management Server. Note that specific versions of the operating systems are tested, so compatibility with CentOS 6.3 may not indicate compatibility with CentOS 6.2, 6.1 and so on.

  • RHEL versions 5.5, 6.2, 6.3, and 6.4
  • CentOS versions 6.3, 6.4 and 6.5
  • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

Supported Hypervisor Versions

CloudStack supports three hypervisor families, XenServer with XAPI, KVM, and VMware with vSphere.

  • Hyper-V 2012 R2

  • CentOS 6.2 with KVM

  • XenServer versions 6.1 and 6.2 SPI with latest hotfixes

  • Bare metal hosts are supported, which have no hypervisor. These hosts can run the following operating systems:

    • RHEL or CentOS, v6.2 or 6.3

      Note

      Use libvirt version 0.9.10 for CentOS 6.3

  • Firefox version 26 or lower
  • Google Chrome version 31
