Cloud platforms let you increase performance and capacity without having to buy and configure new hardware. They let you add capabilities to your ArcGIS Enterprise deployment, such as resizing compute capacity, automatically scaling capacity up and down according to conditions you define, and automatically distributing application traffic across multiple instances for better performance.
To leverage these capabilities in your ArcGIS Enterprise deployments, Esri provides ArcGIS virtual machine images on two popular cloud platforms, Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.
Use the Esri Amazon Machine Images along with sample AWS CloudFormation templates to deploy ArcGIS Enterprise and ArcGIS Server sites on AWS.
Install ArcGIS Enterprise Cloud Builder for Microsoft Azure and use it to deploy ArcGIS Enterprise and build ArcGIS Server sites to fill specific roles in your deployment.
