vCloud Director 5.1 supported guest Operating Systems

I seen an internal email today regarding what Operating Systems are supported in vCloud Director 5.1.  I always forget where to look for this information, so thought it would be useful to post here for a quick reference.  The information listed below can be found in vCD 5.1 Users Guide on page 119.  To find Windows Server 2012 support statement you will need to check the release notes.

    Useful info, thanks. Interesting to note that the list is much smaller than the vSphere list of supported guest OSs. Do you know why? As vCD is built on vSphere I’d expect them to be the same.

    It’s a shame that Oracle Enterprise Linux isn’t on the supported list for vCD which rather limits my ability to recommend it to my management team. One more notch for OracleVM (unfortunately)?
