You can export virtual machines, virtual appliances, and vApps in Open Virtual Format (OVF) and Open Virtual Appliance (OVA) . You can then deploy the OVF or OVA template in the same environment or in a different environment.
In previous versions of vSphere, you needed to install the Client Integration Plug-in to deploy and export OVF or OVA templates. vSphere 6.5 no longer requires that you install the Client Integration Plug-in to deploy or export OVF and OVA templates.
In vSphere 6.5 and later, you cannot export OVA templates. OVF templates is the only option.
Watch the video "vSphere Web Client after the Client Integration Plug-in Removal" for more information about the workflow changes to the vSphere Client for deploying and exporting OVF and OVA templates:
