Squirro is designed and optimized for Linux. Installations are provided for the Red Hat® and CentOS distributions, both in the cloud or on premise.
Squirro is built as a service-oriented platform. All services work as self-contained units of functionality and therefore are suited for different scenarios. Squirro can match small but also complex and large-scale requirements. All Squirro services communicate via RESTful API. The Squirro API is open and allows for 3rd party integration for all services and functionality.

Squirro supports two different types of deployments - cloud and on-premise. Updating installations in the cloud is done by the Squirro staff, based on individual agreements with the customer. For on-premise deployments, the upgrade process is driven by the customer directly.
Squirro supports the following two standardised platforms.
A separate cloud is generally set up for each customer, to isolate the different installations. Squirro generally works with Amazon Web Services for cloud deployments. But other cloud services are supported on demand.
Red Hat® and CentOS. See System Requirements for details.
This Administration Guide targets customers and partners who maintain their on-premise deployments of Squirro.
