Enable OpenPages on CentOS and Ubuntu Linux

We'd like to see support for additional Linux distributions but in particular, CentOS and Ubuntu.

This is useful as it will enable a greater, more cost effective, deployment choices across a broader range of cloud hosting platforms.

    Thank you again for submitting this RFE!

    We do have an active Containerization Strategy where Production workloads are targeted to first be supported in 4Q2020 (with IBM Cloud Pak for Data) and into 2021 (via Red Hat OpenShift).

    In subsequent Client Events (Customer Advisory Board, etc.) we will be further communicating this strategy.

    For this particular request, we are marking as "Will Not Implement" for now but we are looking forward to continuing the discussion with both you and our other Clients...

    Hi, I'd like to request an update for this its been over 6 months without direction. CentOS claims Kernel compatibility to RHEL and is low hanging fruit to support, I know many other IBM products that follow this mantra.

    It would be great to have Alpine Linux also supported, to promote secure and more maintainable application containers.

    From what I have encountered IBM will support CentOS as long as the CentOS version claims kernel compatibility with the supported Redhat versions. Not sure about Ubuntu.
