Browser requirements for services on the UKCloud platform
To get the best interaction with the UKCloud platform, it's important to use a browser that is compatible with all aspects of the services with which you interact.
This document outlines the browser requirement for UKCloud services.
UKCloud for VMware
For UKCloud for VMware, vCloud Director 9.1 is compatible with many current and last major browser revisions. Version 9.1 of vCloud Director was tested by VMware and supports:
- Google Chrome 64
- Mozilla Firefox 58
- Microsoft Edge 41
- Microsoft Internet Explorer 11
You must enable Flash in your browser to access the vCloud Director Web Console.
The Edge browser does not support plugins, so functions such as console redirection and OVF upload using the legacy UI do not work with Edge. To perform these functions, you must use a different browser.
Although Internet Explorer is supported by vCloud Director 9.1, if you've applied any security or group policy restrictions, you may encounter problems.
UKCloud for OpenStack
UKCloud for OpenStack is powered by OpenStack and uses the Horizon project to provide its dashboard capabilities. Horizon is built around modern HTML5 standards and requires no auxiliary plugins to operate. Therefore, it is compatible with all latest browser versions.
UKCloud for Microsoft Azure
Interaction with UKCloud for Microsoft Azure is through the Azure Stack portal. Microsoft recommends using the most up-to-date browser for your operating system.
