  • You will need access to several PCs and/or locally hosted or cloud hosted VMs and/or Rasberry PIs. In this course I demonstrate various features using Windows 10, Ubuntu, Rasberry Pi and MacOSX
  • You have the choice of using dedicated hardware, or using cloud or locally hosted VM managers such as Oracle Virtual Box. The more variation you can access, the better. Zabbix agents will run on most OSs, but Zabbix Server and Proxy will need Linux such as Ubuntu or CentOS
  • In this course I predominantly demonstrate using Ubuntu Linux, but also provide CentOS equivalent commands in accompanying documentation where applicable.
