B.R.O.S. is a system, which can fully function on almost every hardware. For maximum productivity and optimal performance, we recommend buying new equipment, but the operating system and services, which B.R.O.S. provides, can be installed on your hardware, if you do not wish to buy new equipment.

Operating systems

Base OS

  • Debian 6/7 x32/x64

  • CentOS 6 x32/x64

Virtual machine OS

  • Debian 6/7 x32/x64

  • CentOS 6 x32/x64

  • Ubuntu 12 x32/x64
