The ArcGIS team is thrilled to announce that we now have an ArcGIS 10.3.1 for Server virtual machine (VM) image available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. This image is available in all public Azure data centers world wide.
To complement the image, we provide a Windows-based desktop application called ArcGIS Server Cloud Builder for Microsoft Azure, which you can download.
You can use Cloud Builder to deploy a GIS server or a full web GIS on Microsoft Azure virtual machines. This allows you to take advantage of the flexibility and scalability that Azure offers, along with the mapping and sharing capabilities inherent in the ArcGIS platform. Cloud Builder is currently in beta and the team is hard at work to deliver the final version.
We look forward to your feedback and learning about your experiences with the software. Please join the Early Adopter group to provide feedback and receive troubleshooting assistance. To learn more about the software, see the ArcGIS Server on Microsoft Azure documentation.
