The ArcGIS Enterprise AMIs

Esri provides Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) you can use when building a site on Amazon Web Services (AWS). You can use the AMIs with the ArcGIS Enterprise Cloud Builder Command Line Interface for Amazon Web Services, AWS CloudFormation templates, or the AWS Management Console to deploy ArcGIS Enterprise or build stand-alone ArcGIS Server sites. ArcGIS Server Cloud Builder on Amazon Web Services also uses these AMIs to build stand-alone ArcGIS Server sites.

AMIs are publicly available from AWS Marketplace; you do not need to contact Esri Customer Service to access most of the ArcGIS Enterprise AMIs.*

*To use AMIs in Chinese regions, you need to contact your regional office. Implementations in GovCloud require you work with Esri Professional Services.

Available AMIs are as follows:

  • Esri ArcGIS Enterprise 10.6 on Ubuntu
  • Esri ArcGIS Enterprise 10.6 on Windows

The following table provides a summary of the components included with the current version of each type of AMI.

To deploy ArcGIS Enterprise, use the ArcGIS Enterprise Cloud Builder Command Line Interface for Amazon Web Services utility and Esri sample AWS CloudFormation templates.

To create a stand-alone ArcGIS Server site, you can use ArcGIS Server Cloud Builder on Amazon Web Services. If you will be using the AWS Management Console to create a site from these AMIs instead, follow the instructions in Launch an EC2 instance running ArcGIS Server.
