Esri Training Seminar Offers Overview of ArcGIS Server

Learn how to run ArcGIS Server on Amazon EC2 at Esri's free training seminar.

Esri will present a live, online training seminar on Thursday, August 26, 2010, titled Running ArcGIS Server on Amazon EC2. The seminar will air on at 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., and 3:00 p.m. Pacific daylight time.

Amazon EC2 allows users to rent computing hardware resources and build scalable system architectures. Presenter Andrew Stauffer, ArcGIS Server development technical lead, will explain how to use a preconfigured ArcGIS Server instance on the Amazon EC2 cloud infrastructure. He will also demonstrate how to navigate the Amazon Web Services Management console and develop a production application using multiple instances.

The attendees will learn how to
  • Create flexible deployments that respond to fluctuations in demand.

  • Develop prototype geographic information system (GIS) applications while reducing hardware investments.

  •  More effectively meet the needs of their organizations.
This live training seminar is geared toward GIS managers, administrators, developers, and analysts as well as IT managers and network administrators who want to use Amazon’s cloud infrastructure as a platform for running ArcGIS Server.

A broadband Internet connection and an Esri Global Account are needed to participate in the training seminar. Creating a global account is easy and free: visit, click Login, and register your name and address. A few weeks after the live presentation, this seminar will be archived and available for viewing on the Esri Training website.
