We are pleased to announce that an update of the Tech Preview ArcGIS Server on Microsoft Azure, which we shared prior to User Conference 2014, is now available for download. You can read all about the prior announcement here.
We received excellent feedback from the user community who downloaded and tried out the software. The overwhelming request was for the ability to deploy Portal for ArcGIS in the same, simple to use manner as ArcGIS for Server. The team listened and has delivered!
With the updated tech preview package, you can now deploy both ArcGIS 10.2.2 for Server and Portal for ArcGIS 10.2.2 on the Microsoft Azure Cloud. The scripts and step-by-step documentation included with the updated tech preview package also allow you to configure ArcGIS for Server as a hosting server to the portal and achieve federation between ArcGIS Server and portal sites.
As always, we look forward to your feedback and learning about your experiences with the software. You can provide feedback in the blog comments section or join the ArcGIS Server on Microsoft Azure group on GeoNet.

Participating in Community Maps is easier than ever. The Contribution Management App (CMA) streamlines applying, contributing and tracking your contribution. The app even has a short “click-though” agreement that grants Esri permission to use the content while your organization retains ownership of the intellectual property.
We’ve also added easy to use geoprocessing tools to further simplify preparing your data for participation. This is a suite of tools you can run from ArcGIS Desktop to select only the fields we need for mapping and format them for uploading. This is far simpler than the previous requirement of migrating content to a special data model.
These enhancements are covered in a new five-minute video that walks you through the CMA and demonstrates how to prep a data layer using the GP tools. It’s a great way to get up and running with Community Maps in a hurry.
Please watch the new video and think about adding your favorite layers (like tree inventory, building footprint or municipal parks) to the basemaps!
