AWS Systems Manager Distributor adds support to install and update agents on Oracle Linux platforms

Posted on: Jul 27, 2020

Distributor, a capability of AWS Systems Manager, now allows you to install and update software agents on instances running Oracle Linux 7.5, 7.6, 7.7, and 7.8. This support simplifies agent management for environments that include Oracle Linux instances.

With Systems Manager Distributor, you can securely store and manage software agents from its centralized, version controlled repository. Each software agent can include installers for multiple platforms and architectures, which Distributor will automatically select based on the platform and architecture of your instances. With this support, Distributor packages can now also include installers for Oracle Linux platforms. 

This feature is available in all AWS Regions where AWS Systems Manager is offered. For more information, visit the Systems Manager product page and Systems Manager Distributor documentation. Distributor is offered with pay-as-you-go pricing. See the AWS Systems Manager Pricing page for details.
