tc Server Supported Configurations

The following table shows all supported configurations for vFabric tc Server. These include vFabric Suite supported configurations, as well as additional configurations supported by standalone vFabric tc Server.

The table indicates if the supported configuration is for production or development. Generally, Production support means you can run your production application on the platform; Developer support means you can develop on the platform but you should not run your production application on it. However, see vFabric Suite supported configurations for details.

Because you typically install and run the Hyperic Agent on the same computer as tc Runtime, you should also consult HQ Agent Requirements.
