November 30, 2016 – Redlands, California—At this year’s AWS re:Invent, global smart-mapping leader Esri announced that customers can now deploy select ArcGIS licenses from Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace instantly, using a pay-per-use pricing model available through hourly or annual subscriptions. Automated software provisioning allows users to launch new projects, respond to emergency requirements, address spikes in usage, and respond seamlessly to business needs without being tied to restrictive enterprise licensing models.
Esri also offers a full suite of managed cloud services to support customers that do not have the resources to design, deploy, and manage cloud-based geographic information system (GIS) implementations in-house. Esri has the skills, staff, and experience to manage complex public and private cloud environments. Esri managed services professionals not only design and configure ArcGIS implementations, but they can also provide ongoing management of the environment, allowing internal resources the freedom to focus on the mission.
“Esri is excited to join AWS Marketplace,” said Dean Angelides, head of international alliances and partners at Esri. “Flexible pay-as-you-go deployment models and service options make launching GIS in the cloud simple, unleashing the power of maps, geographic analytics, and comprehensive developer tools to users around the world.”
Developers and starts-ups require innovative, productive technologies to support high-growth businesses with limited capital. Using Esri software on AWS enables developers to share assets and build new applications that take advantage of a range of ready-to-use content with location and mapping services.
