At 10.5, you can store the following items in a bucket in Amazon simple storage service (S3) to make the content highly available: your portal's content directory, map and image caches, and backup files generated by the webgisdr tool.
Esri also offers new CloudFormation templates to launch additional ArcGIS Server roles on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Use Amazon S3 for a highly available portal content directory
When you deploy a highly available portal on AWS, you can create a bucket in Amazon S3 and use it to store the content directory that is shared by the portal machines. This helps ensure that the content saved and uploaded by your portal members is also highly available.
Store caches in Amazon S3
You can store CompactV2 map or image caches in an Amazon S3 bucket located in the same region as your ArcGIS Server site on AWS.
Store backups in Amazon S3
If you use the webgisdr tool installed with Portal for ArcGIS to create a backup of your ArcGIS Enterprise deployment on AWS, you can create an S3 bucket and direct the webgisdr tool to output files there.
The names of most Amazon CloudFormation templates provided by Esri have been changed to align with new ArcGIS product and component names.
New templates are available at 10.5 to help you configure the following ArcGIS Server deployments:
- An ArcGIS GeoEvent Server
- An ArcGIS Image Server
- An ArcGIS GeoAnalytics Server to be federated with an ArcGIS Enterprise deployment
Product name changes
ArcGIS Server on Amazon Web Services is now called ArcGIS Enterprise on Amazon Web Services, to reflect the fact that the Esri Amazon Machine Images include ArcGIS Enterprise components. The Amazon Machine Images have also been renamed to reflect this.
