A dp can exist on anything from windows 7 upward, It is a distribuion point only each DP can hold 10,000 objects and you can have 250 of them.

Management point is a site system role that provides policy and service location information to clients and receives configuration data from clients.

Distribution point is a  site system role that contains source files for clients to download, such as application content, software packages, software updates, operating system images, and boot images.
