Replication to an Amazon Web Services instance using geodata services
If you are making edits to your GIS data, you can edit the data locally then use replication to synchronize the data through a geodata service published from your enterprise geodatabase in your ArcGIS Server on Amazon Web Services instance.
Replication and synchronization performed directly from your local geodatabase to your enterprise geodatabase in your ArcGIS Server on Amazon Web Services instance would take a great deal of time. For that reason, you should do the following instead:
- Register your local (publisher) geodatabase and server (Amazon) geodatabase with ArcGIS for Server.
- Choose to create a geodata service from the server database when you register it.
- Set the registered data store for your ArcGIS for Server connection to use replication, with the parent being your local enterprise geodatabase and the enterprise geodatabase in Amazon being the child.
- After edits are made, synchronize data changes.
You should be aware of any restrictions that exist when replicating specific types of data. See the following topics for more information:
