The original hardware vendor and platform type. In case another vendor offers binary compatible machines which can be run with the OS of the original hardware vendor, it is likely that HELIOS products can also be used on that machines. However, a test should be conducted in any case.
 
Arch
The architecture string under which HELIOS products are listed for this hardware.
 
OS
The operating system required for the specific platform.
 
Comments
Any comments related to HELIOS support for a specific OS version or platform.
