Confirmed: No HFM in EPM for Linux

Rather than a lengthy post about Hyperion / Oracle EPM, how about a screenshot?

So if you are running a Linux-heavy shop and need HFM, you will need Windows Server 2016 or 2019 in the mix.

July 27, 2020 Update:  an Oracle SVP of Development commented on my LinkedIn post about this topic, and stated HFM for Linux would become available sometime in 2021.  This is great news!


  1. I've updated the post this morning with new information. HFM for Linux is expected sometime in 2021.

  2. I'm taking it they mean RHEL 7 and OEL 7 commodity releases? Unlike the former Exalytics only releases.

    1. Hi Larry, yes that is how I interpret it. When we go out to eDelivery we only see 2 options: Windows 64bit and Linux 64bit. The Linux-64 one would apply to RHEL 7 and Oracle Linux 7. In theory, it would also work with Exalytics IF the operating system has been upgraded to Oracle Linux 7. But there is no exclusive Exalytics-only version available for download at this time.
