Chef Cookbook available to automate ArcGIS for Server configuration

You can automate the installation and configuration of ArcGIS 10.3.1 for Server using a Chef Cookbook available on the Esri GitHub repository or Chef Supermarket. Download and run the tool to install and configure multiple GIS servers in a single site or install a full web GIS with the GIS server, Portal for ArcGIS, ArcGIS Web Adaptor, and ArcGIS Data Store on a machine, and configure them to work together.

The cookbook does not require any changes; you can run it as-is and launch a site. But if you are experienced with Chef and want to customize the Cookbook before running it, you can do that too.

For more information on what the Cookbook does and how to use it, see Get Started with ArcGIS Cookbook and the ArcGIS Cookbook information on Esri GitHub.

Beta release of ArcGIS for Server on Microsoft Azure is now available

Update: The production version of ArcGIS Server Cloud Builder 10.3.1 for Microsoft Azure is now released. See this more recent blog post for information and links to downloads.

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.
