Hello You ALL!! Here is another deployment post for all of you. Today we will learn about Amazon Corretto Deployment Using SCCM. Here we will show you a detailed step-by-step guide for deploying Amazon Correttoto on Windows 10/11 devices using SCCM (Configuration Manager).
Amazon Corretto is a no-cost, multiplatform, production-ready distribution of the Open Java Development Kit (OpenJDK). Performance enhancements and security fixes will be included in the long-term support package for Corretto.
Corretto is used by Amazon internally on thousands of production services, and its compatibility with Java SE has also been certified. Linux, Windows, and macOS are all supported by Corretto so that you can develop and run Java applications on them.
The Amazon Corretto cloud service allows you to run the same environment remotely, on-premises, and on your local computer simultaneously.
The MSI application is the best method to deploy Amazon Corretto to Windows 10/11 devices. In this Step-by-Step guide for Amazon Corretto Application Deployment using SCCM, we will use the MSI file for the deployment.

What is an MSI file?
Windows packages that contain installation information, including files to be installed and installation locations, are called MSI files. The EXE and MSI files both install and launch Windows programs. The EXE file may not always contain an installer and may launch its program when double-clicked. An MSI file, however, always includes an installer.
Amazon Corretto Deployment Using SCCM
Let’s start with the Deployment of Amazon Corretto using SCCM. As told earlier, we are using the MSI file for Amazon Corretto Deployment. You will see why the availability of MSI files for any application is always a joy for SCCM Admin. We don’t need to work on prerequisites as we used to tell you in the previous posts.
- All we have to do is download the MSI installer and the logo of the Amazon Corretto, as we know it is available for download, and our half job is done.
One can easily download the 64-bit application directly from Amazon Corretto. They have provided different setups for different environments. One can easily differentiate and choose the right setup for the Windows 64-bit architecture.
