The version of Linux in the VirtualBox is 64-Bit CentOS, as per the below:

HDP 2.6 supports the below 64-Bit Linux OS, including Red Hat:

http://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/HDP2/HDP-2.6.0/bk_support-matrices/content/ch_matrices-hdp....

which you can install on premise, via Azure, AWS, GCP, etc.

The Sandbox is designed to by more prescriptive, therefore fewer options in terms of OS choice.
