  1. We have two ArcGIS server licenses and two SQL with hardware network load balancer (F5) with windows OS
  2. We have kept our servers (GIS related only for hosting GIS services and GIS applications) in data center that is outside to our office premises and we have dedicated 10 GBPS fiber optic cable between our office and data center. Our organization will access the application and access the data using ArcMap/Arc Catalog using this data link and if the fiber optics breaks down then our organisation will access applications using internet.
  3. We Have two applications one is open for public  and other is with restricted access for internal users of our organization and there are chances we will make some functionalities of this application accessible to other stake holders who are stationed outside to our office premises and not part of our organization.
  4. We are likely to make smart phone application ( Secure application and open for public applications) based on Android and IOS
  5. We have a Virtual environment and can create multiple servers.



  1. What will be idle ArcGIS server deployment option in both situation where:
    • We have access to AD/LDAP of organisation
    • We don't have access to AD/LDAP of organisation
  2. Is this best practice to go for HTTP map services for public website and HTTPS for other secured application.? Can we have both HTTP and HTTPS from single ArcGIS server site.
  3. Which type of authentication (GIS tier or web authentication) should we prefer.
  4. What is the advantage of using ArcGIS Portal like Federating an ArcGIS Server site with your portal.
