Esri is excited to announce the availability of ArcGIS for Server on the Microsoft Azure US Government Cloud. ArcGIS for Server will allow users to deploy leading-edge GIS technology on Microsoft Azure virtual machines.
As the world’s leading enterprise mapping and spatial analytics platform, ArcGIS for Server provides a complete Web GIS environment for mapping and spatial analytics with ready-to-use maps and apps that can be shared and used by everyone in the organization. ArcGIS for Server easily dovetails with other enterprise systems, including Microsoft Azure SQL and supports Azure security and compliance standards. Mapping, analysis and geodata products can be readily used in apps for office and field workers, and for engaging and crowdsourcing communities.
Deploying on Microsoft Azure means you don’t have to maintain hardware infrastructure, and you can create or remove sites based on demand. With this new offering, customers can deploy ArcGIS for Server on Microsoft Azure sites from images on Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
