Certified: Certified means that on this OS version, Couchbase Server has passed our extensive testing and review process to make sure it runs well out of the box.

Supported: Supported means that on this OS version, we believe that Couchbase Server will run well out of the box but extensive testing has not been carried out with that OS version. We will make our best effort to investigate the issue on a compatible OS version, but recommend you run Couchbase on the certified OS version.
