The following new functionality is available in ArcGIS Data Store 10.6:
- The upgrade procedure has changed; you now install ArcGIS Data Store on all machines first and then configure, allowing you to configure multiple machines at the same time. You can do this with the Data Store Configuration wizard or the configuredatastore utility.
- You can configure multiple output locations for spatiotemporal big data store backups, including Amazon Web Services Simple Storage Service (S3) buckets and Microsoft Azure blob storage containers.
- If you use tile cache data stores, you can use the new enablessl parameter with the changedbproperties utility to enable HTTP communication between the hosting server and tile cache data store. If you use HTTP communication when creating the tile cache data store, you avoid having to enable SSLv3 security on the hosting server; a setting that affects all communication on the hosting server machines.
Several issues were also fixed in ArcGIS Data Store 10.6. For information on what was fixed, see the 10.6 issues addressed list.
