Esri ArcGIS for Server Virtual Appliance for IBM PureFlex 2012

Tab navigation

Esri ArcGIS® for Server (AGS) is a geospatial application server for spatial information management and for creation of focused, geospatially-enabled Web applications and services that can be utilized by any browser-based, mobile, and personal device. With the introduction of the Esri ArcGIS for Server virtual appliance pattern on IBM PureFlex, we solve the administrative complexity associated with creating and deploying new instances of ArcGIS for Server. In this joint solution, the IBM PureFlex System includes integrated patterns designed to automate and optimize the deployment and maintenance of Esri ArcGIS for Server workloads. The IBM PureFlex System optimization expertise also allows the infrastructure to flex to unexpected demands without requiring expensive surplus capacity. Also, instead of installing, configuring, and tuning the ArcGIS for Server for every new instance of the same server, a system is captured as a virtual appliance pattern. The key advantage is the capability to provision new ArcGIS for Server environments rapidly in order to sustain new workflows and their system loads.

  • + Functional details

    The IBM PureFlex platform provides  “single pane of glass” management and auto scaling functionality for ArcGIS for Server customers. Customers can monitor from a single interface to quickly isolate issues with hardware and ArcGIS for Server workloads running on multiple virtual servers. When workload and capacity requirements change, The PureFlex system automatically scales the ArcGIS for Server up or down according to the defined policies. When the ArcGIS workload exceeds the threshold, the PureFlex system instantiates a new VM which adds resource capacity to the application, so that response time objectives are maintained. Similarly, if workload falls below the defined threshold, then the system deletes unneeded VM thereby reducing resource capacity.

  • + Competitive advantage

    ArcGIS for Server on IBM Pureflex is an un-matched distinct, GIS ready-to-deploy appliance in the market. Pureflex system auto-provisioning, hardware performance, and ease of workload consolidation delivers immediate value to customer server system needs
