Spotfire Server + Web Player Service in Linux only environment

I find it very confusing to understand how all the different components of Spotfire are supposed to work together. We have a Spotfire Server set up on a SUSE Linux Server (we don't have any Windows Servers in our IT environment). Am I reading this right that in order to create dashboards which are viewable in a web browser (in our intranet) we need to run the Spotfire Web Player Service? And the Web Player Service needs a node manager? And a node manager can only be installed on Windows Servers? Or can we achieve this in a Linux only environment as well?
