Store and manage features. Enable spatial relationships and behavior (such as networks and topologies) on your geographic data. Scale to store massive global datasets and support simultaneous editing by many users.
Manage your imagery and raster data. Learn how to edit, analyze, and share your image collections, no matter the size. Enable your image data to be accessed anywhere from desktops to web browsers, tablets, and smartphones.
Turn your tabular information into locations on your map. Add rich attributes to your features. Access geographic and tabular data held in numerous databases, such as Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, PostgreSQL, Teradata, SAP HANA, ALTIBASE, and Netezza. Many tabular formats, such as Excel and comma-delimited text files, can also be used in ArcGIS.
Access and work with many geographic data formats. You can connect to data in external business systems, bring this data into your maps, and integrate it with your GIS data.
Expand the capabilities of ArcGIS by incorporating real-time data into your GIS applications.
Leverage big data by combining custom Hadoop applications with the ArcGIS geoprocessing environment. This is accomplished using GIS Tools for Hadoop, an open source toolkit for Big Spatial Data Analytics using ArcGIS.
ArcGIS Data Store is an optional component of ArcGIS designed to optimize publishing workflows to your organization. By configuring Portal for ArcGIS with ArcGIS Data Store, you can publish and share thousands of feature layers.
