At this time, Debian does not have a formal hardware certification program.
If you are interested in checking how Debian works with your hardware,
you could have your developers do the work, or hire consultants who
are familiar with Debian to test compatibility with your hardware.
We have a section on the wiki where users can report their hardware experiences:
There is a similar service called h-node that is for all libre Linux distros:
We have a couple of lists of hardware that ships with Debian out of
the box. If Quanta are shipping Debian on your hardware, feel free to
register an account on our wiki and edit the ShippingWithDebian page.
Ultimately, Debian relies on the upstream Linux kernel community for
most of our hardware support, so getting any needed drivers or patches
included upstream will mean that Debian supports your hardware.
Please also consider adding support for your servers to the coreboot
PS: in 2018 the annual Debian conference will be held in Hsinchu,
Taiwan. It would be great if Quanta could help fund DebConf18 and
Quanta developers could attend DebConf18.
