What about Google Cloud? I see that Windows and Red Hat Linux servers can be provisioned on the Google Cloud.
Has anyone implemented ArcGIS Enterprise on this cloud platform? Doing a search here on GeoNet and on Google reveals little to no evidence of it.
Months later and no response ... safe to assume nobody has deployed ArcGIS Server/Portal on the Google cloud?
Is it not possible? Or nobody bothers because there are plenty of resources for Azure/AWS?
I have been tasked with creating an Arc Enterprise deployment in a cloud environment and have also been looking at google since they are about half the price as AWS. I know there is some "conflict" between ESRI and Google due to Google Earth, but cloud server wise, i dont see how it would matter. A linux server instance is the same machine regardless if it runs in AWS/Azure/Google...I think. Did you go with google, do you have any insights.
Thanks for giving this a bump. Indeed, you're right, you CAN use Google cloud for deploying ArcGIS Enterprise. Just for fun I did it myself and had no issues, although I used Windows server instances. At the latest Esri Federal GIS conference I asked the Esri cloud folks if there were any limitations to using the Google cloud platform. They said "no limits" and they focus on AWS/Azure because that's what customers are asking for.
Tim, thanks for the response. That helped answer some uncertainty. Still deciding on configuration details, but good to know the host is a non-issue.

This is a rather "ancient" conversation at this point. Did you ever end up implementing a live Google Cloud-based ArcGIS Enterprise environment? I plan on moving an inhouse ArcGIS federated environment to the cloud over the next 6 months or so and didn't want to rule Google out as an option...
