About OVD 2.7.2

Inuvika OVD Enterprise 2.7.2 is a maintenance release that includes a number of maintenance fixes for OVD 2.7.0. For more details, please refer to the changelog at the bottom of the page.

About OVD 2.7.0

Inuvika OVD Enterprise 2.7.0 is a major release that introduces new support for Multi-Tenancy. Managed Service Providers and large, multi-branch organizations can now implement multiple, independent instances of OVD from one shared server farm. Individual tenant data and shared resources remain isolated from one another, ensuring complete data privacy.

Version 2.7.0 also includes changes for Operating System support and user interfaces.

Support for Multi-Tenancy

OVD 2.7.0 is now a fully multi-tenant ready solution, allowing multiple organizations ("tenants") to share the same OVD farm, and other data center resources, without compromising data privacy. OVD can also be used in smaller, single-tenant environments with little to no change compared to previous versions.

Linux Desktop and Applications Look and Feel

The Linux application and desktop user interface has been modernized and unified across all the Linux variants that Inuvika supports. Users of Microsoft Windows 10 workstations can experience a more familiar desktop environment when transitioning over from Windows applications and desktops to Linux.

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) Support

IT departments can use Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) to host any component of Inuvika OVD Enterprise.

End of Support for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and Demo Appliance (ODA)

OVD 2.7.0 has discontinued support for Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr), as Canonical's Extended Server Support ended in April 2019. If you are currently maintaining OVD on Ubuntu 14.04, you are required to perform a clean re-installation on Ubuntu 16.04 or Ubuntu 18.04 if you wish to upgrade to 2.7.0.

Inuvika has also discontinued support for the OVD Demo Appliance (ODA), initially used for quick demonstration installations. Inuvika released a new installation mechanism based on Ansible to help organizations accelerate the deployment of both small and large OVD installations.

End of Support Scheduled for Windows Server 2008 R2

OVD 2.7.x is the last version to support Windows Server 2008 R2, as Microsoft's Extended Support ends in January 2020. Future releases of OVD will only support Windows Server 2012 R2 (or newer) for security and stability reasons.
