New Option Provides Easier, Greener Deployment of Server GIS
Redlands, California—May 21, 2010—ESRI announces that, for the first time, customers have the option to purchase a cloud-based subscription to ArcGIS Server, ESRI’s server-based geographic information system (GIS) software. With this option, users can purchase an annual subscription, which bundles a preconfigured ArcGIS Server instance on Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) infrastructure with 12 months of ESRI technical support and maintenance. ArcGIS Server Cloud Bundle expands ESRI’s growing cloud offerings and provides customers with another deployment option for ArcGIS Server.
Running ArcGIS Server in the cloud simplifies GIS server deployment and reduces the complexity of server management. It allows organizations to more rapidly meet larger-than-average workloads and demand by scaling up or down the number of ArcGIS Server instances without investing in new on-premises hardware. Users gain direct access to ArcGIS Server within minutes and can begin publishing services and supporting Web mapping applications immediately. ArcGIS Server Cloud Bundle is also a green computing option that allows organizations to reduce their overall energy consumption.
Customers with enterprise license agreements (ELAs) can purchase the bundle at a special ELA discount and deploy their licenses on Amazon virtual machines instead of on-premises computers.
