What's new

Data Appliance 6.4 for ArcGIS has the following improvements and enhancements:

Highlights

Data Appliance 6.4 for ArcGIS is delivered on 8-terabyte drives.

Esri Vector Basemaps for ArcGIS Enterprise, an additional set of basemaps in vector tile format, is new with this release; it ships separately on a USB flash drive with most product options. The tile layers included with this product provide wider coverage and more up-to-date content than the raster maps provided on Data Appliance 6.4 for ArcGIS.

The World Places Locator is updated on Collection B.

The World Boundaries and Places Alternate service is in mature support and will be retired in the next release of Data Appliance for ArcGIS.

The World_Shaded_Relief service is no longer available on Data Appliance 6.4 for ArcGIS. The service was in mature support in the previous Data Appliance 6.3 for ArcGIS release.

Note:

See ArcGIS Product Lifecycle Support Policy for more information on mature support.

The Data Appliance overview provides information on the different Data Appliance product options and includes a table to help you understand the difference between the services in each product option.
