This webinar will focus on ho¬w local governments can leverage various cloud computing resources. Vish will talk about the various options available for running ArcGIS server in the cloud and how to go about selecting the best approach for local government organizations. He will also address concerns like connecting to data in the cloud, moving data in and out of the cloud and providing citizens with access to public datasets at minimal costs.
Running GIS services for a local government brings opportunities and also challenges. Cloud computing provides managed IT services and reduces the overhead required to keep system operations. It can help offset costs and enable movement to newer hardware. Managed services like Relational Database Service (RDS) and Simple Storage Service (S3) can help reduce the number of systems that the IT department is responsible for managing and maintaining.
