Hi. I've been using ArcGIS Server and ArcGIS Online for Organizations for a couple of years. We are looking at Portal for ArcGIS. I can't seem to find the answer to a question I have about the types of services you can publish using Portal for ArcGIS. One of the limitations of AGOL is that you can only publish tiled services or feature services; not dynamic map services like you can publish using ArcGIS Server. Dynamic map services are a better solution for a lot of the large data sizes and labeling requirements we have.
From what I can find, it looks like only the same types of services are published through Portal as AGOL. I've always been told that AGOL is a scaled down version of ArcGIS Server so the lack of service hosting types and capabilities has been understood. But, I would have expected those options to exist for something that sits on top of a full ArcGIS Server install. And maybe it does. I just can't find that information. So, to start, can anyone tell me what exactly a Portal/AGOL feature service is from an ArcGIS Server standpoint?
Thanks for the help.
