Learn How to Run ArcGIS Server on Amazon EC2

Free Training Seminar Offers an Overview of Esri’s Newest Cloud GIS Offering

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 www.esri.com/lts 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.

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.
