ArcGIS Cloud Computing Promises Leading-Edge IT Technology and Benefits to Users
Redlands, California — February 18, 2010 — As part of its commitment to support cloud computing, ESRI is collaborating with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to join the growing community of AWS Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) building services and solutions in the cloud computing environment.
In the debut of collaboration, AWS will be a Gold Sponsor at the ESRI Federal User Conference in Washington, D.C., February 17–19. In addition to the many cloud discussions that will occur at this event, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the complexities and concerns of cloud computing security at a dedicated technical session. This new AWS relationship will serve the ESRI user community into the future as cloud computing continues to move quickly into the IT mainstream, becoming a convention in business.
"We have a growing user base that's interested in cloud computing and the benefits it promises," says Jack Dangermond, president, ESRI. "We're excited about working with Amazon Web Services and joining their software vendor community. We'll continue to move forward to provide leading solutions that will meet customer needs now and into the future."
"ArcGIS provides a standards-based platform for spatial analysis, data management, and mapping. Making ArcGIS available via cloud computing will give customers a secure, scalable, and easy-to-deploy Web option for enterprise data visualization and geospatial analytics."
