Tech Preview of ArcGIS Server on Microsoft Azure now supports Portal for ArcGIS

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.
