How to run raster analysis globally?

I was recently asked a question with regards to conducting analysis on a global scale. Using ArcGIS Desktop 10.x and ArcGIS Pro 2.1 I want to do what I think should be straightforward enough and carry out an analysis, like calculate Euclidian Distance, on port locations across the globe.


With this analysis, I want to see the calculation results continue across the max/min line of longitude (e.g. 180 and -180 degrees) so that the whole sphere is covered. For example, the results should show spatial relationships between Auckland and Los Angeles.


I assume this analysis not running spherically is because a raster analysis works in a 2D space where the left-hand side does not relate to the right-hand side.


Is there the possibility within ESRI software to run a raster analysis where the "left" and "right" are "aware" of each other?
