Using AWS CloudFormation with ArcGIS for Server Amazon Machine Images

Recently, templates have been added to the ArcGIS help that you can use to launch ArcGIS Server instances on Amazon Web Services (AWS) using AWS CloudFormation.

AWS CloudFormation lets you deploy and provision instances with the hardware infrastructure and resources you specify in a template. The ArcGIS Server templates allow you to deploy and provision multiple, identical ArcGIS Server instances fronted by an Elastic Load Balancer (ELB) in Amazon Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2) or Virtual Private Cloud (VPC). This sort of architecture, with redundant ArcGIS Server instances accessed through an ELB, is referred to as a siloed architecture, because each ArcGIS Server instance is not dependent on any of the other ArcGIS Server instances. If one of the ArcGIS Server instances goes down, the ELB can connect to one of the other instances with little to no down-time, making it ideal for users who require high-availability with redundancy.
