      Sync Gateway’s Supported Operating System and Cloud environments
      Sync Gateway is supported on several popular operating systems and virtual environments.

      Supported Versions

      Make sure that your chosen operating system or cloud environment is listed in one of the following tables before you install Sync Gateway. See the Deprecated Versions section for information about platform support changes, including deprecated platforms.

      sync gateway clusters on mixed platforms are not supported. Nodes in a sync gateway 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.
