ArcGIS Server @ Amazon

Hi all,


We are in the planning stage of upgrading for our ArcGIS Server from 10.1 to the LATEST version.


Here are our current configurations:

  • ArcGIS 10.1 for Server (with over 50 large map/feature/tile services)
  • Total 2 instances, 4 machines

                DEV/TEST - 2 machines (1 for cluster/load balancer)

                PRODUCTION - 2 machines (1 for cluster/load balancer)

  • ArcSDE 10.1 (Oracle 11G)
  • ESRI Org AGO account (40 Web Maps, 20+ Web Apps)


Here are what we like to achieve:

  • setup Arcgis Server 10.4 on Amazon cloud
  • ArcSDE data store on-premise OR migrate to Amazon
  • Avoid long downtime


Here are our questions:


  • If we would like to use Amazon cloud, can we use our existing ArcSDE (oracle based, hosted in-house)
  • Is there a first time setup fee charged by Amazon?
  • do we need a load balanaer if we are using Amazon? 
  • Is there ongoing maintenance and support cost charged by Amazon or ESRI?
  • What’s the traffic and data usage cost for both the ArcGIS Server and ArcSDE access hosted by Amazon?
  • Any suggestions or strategies?



Thanks so much!!!
