Supported Operating Systems

Couchbase Server is supported on several popular operating systems and virtual environments.

Make sure that your chosen operating system is listed in one of the following tables before you install Couchbase Server. See the release notes for information about platform support changes, including deprecated platforms. For information about supported web browsers, see Supported Web Browsers.

Couchbase clusters on mixed platforms are not supported. Nodes in a Couchbase cluster should all be running on the same OS, and every effort should be made to apply the same OS patches across the entire cluster.
