There has been an HTML5 interface available for a couple of years now. That is what is being used. This is both for the ESXi embedded host client as well as vCenter Server.

HTML5 can generally be used as an alternative

Hi, Daphnissov,

Please see the below screenshot. HTML5 to open CLient will get partial functionality.

I am aware of  "Deploy OVF" at least will not be avaible on VC management console.

Log in Flash, right click the Data centre, or Cluster, or Hosts and VMS ICon, Deploy OVF aill be provided.

Log in HTML5, Deploy OVF only available on the host.

I think of it might be lost server useful functionality as VMware remind. VSphere CLient (HTML5) - partial functionality.

Yes, the HTML5 client embedded into vCenter 6.5 is not as fully featured as the one in 6.7. That's just life in software development. You can also deploy the standalone Fling and connect it to your vCenter environment which will give you more features.
