Distributor, a capability of Amazon 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 Amazon Web Services Regions where Amazon 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 Amazon Systems Manager Pricing page for details.
