Esri Technology is Now Available in AWS GovCloud (U.S.) Region

Sharing ArcGIS Resources in This Environment Advances Government Workflows

Redlands, California -- October 10, 2012 -- In conjunction with the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Public Sector Summit in Washington D.C., Esri today announced that its ArcGIS technology can now be deployed in the AWS GovCloud (U.S.) Region. U.S. Government agencies and contractors can take full advantage of the benefits of using ArcGIS in the cloud to deploy more sensitive workloads while meeting International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) requirements.

“Our relationship with Amazon Web Services will be a great benefit to federal agencies,” said Jack Dangermond, president, Esri.  “Many of our federal and public sector customers want to share their work in the cloud and now they have a solution for modernizing their workflows with ArcGIS in a cloud that is physically and logically accessible by U.S. persons only.”

AWS GovCloud allows government agencies to effectively manage more heavily regulated data in AWS while remaining compliant with federal requirements. With Esri ArcGIS technology in GovCloud, federal agencies can efficiently build and manage geospatial content including basemaps, image services, and data. Existing Esri federal government users can more easily share their own GIS applications and data with other agencies.

Since 2009, Esri and Amazon Web Services have offered a practical approach to running GIS services and applications in the cloud. The Amazon cloud is an ideal environment for organizations to successfully develop and deploy applications built on ArcGIS Server and using virtually unlimited computing power for intensive GIS analyses and data processing.
