WebSphere Extended Deployment Compute Grid detailed system requirements

Product documentation


Abstract

The data below identifies supported software options by operating system for IBM WebSphere Extended Deployment Compute Grid V8.0.

This document describes the minimum product levels that need to be installed before opening a problem report with the WebSphere Extended Deployment Compute Grid V8.0 Support team. Because other products frequently ship fixes, updates, and new releases, testing every configuration is not possible. In general, you can install and run with updates to supported products if those updates are forward compatible.
