    The Zing trial downloads page provides Yum-based commands for RHEL and CentOS and Apt-Get-based commands for Ubuntu.

    The versions of those distros that will work is based mostly on the repo setup. That means Zing supports more platforms and distros, but the trial downloads are limited to those for which the repo can handle Yum and Apt-Get instructions.

    As of this response, the Zing repo works and is tested for:

    • RHEL and CentOS 7.x and 6.x
    • Ubuntu 16.04, 14.04, and 12.04 LTS.

    As we expand the breadth and depth of the Zing repo, the following additional distros are planned: Oracle Linux, SLES, and Debian.

    Azul welcomes suggestions for specific distros. Please add requests or comments to this thread.

    As an analyst in a Goverment Institution in Spain, I'm interested in trying Zing in our systems: SLES / OpenSuse.

    Additionally, is there any place to download Zing in a zip file in order to deploy it manually in our systems?

    Thanks in advance!

    Javier, whenever you cannot use the Azul repo, we have Zing downloads available as regular files. Please review this topic for how to request them.

    SLES 12 SP1 and SLES 11 SP4/3/2/1 are all supported by Zing so are available today, just not through the repo yet.

    Javier, I understand Azul provided you details to obtain SLES-ready Zing files. Hopefully those are working out for you.

    For anyone else tracking this topic, Azul added SLES support to our plans for the next update of the Zing Trials system. That means repo support using Zypper should go live later in October. Until that support goes live, please file an evaluation request as referenced in the response above to manually obtain Zing binaries for SLES.

    Same goes for Amazon Linux, which we also target for later in October.

    Javier and any others: The Zing trial downloads site recently expanded to include SLES, plus also Amazon Linux and Debian. We have expanded the Azul repo system such that we now have instructions for RHEL, CentOS, Ubuntu, SLES, Amazon, and Debian package managers.

    We still have the download mechanisms in place for component-based Zing installation if you are in an air gap situation, and that will typically involve engagement with an Azul engineer to ensure you get the right system tools component downloaded for your distro.
