Multi-tier base deployment of ArcGIS Enterprise 10.8.1 using ArcGIS Enterprise Cloud Builder for Microsoft Azure.

ArcGIS Enterprise Cloud Builder for Microsoft Azure is an application you install on your local Microsoft Windows machine to deploy ArcGIS Enterprise and stand-alone ArcGIS Server sites on Microsoft Azure. Depending on what role you want the site to fill, Azure Cloud builder provides several deployment options.

This blog will discuss the workflow of deploying multi-machine ArcGIS Enterprise (non-HA) with each component of base Enterprise deployment – Portal for ArcGIS, ArcGIS GIS Server, Data Store and App Gateway – installed on its own dedicated servers. One thing to note, starting from Azure Cloud Builder 10.8 for Microsoft Azure,  the base ArcGIS Enterprise deployment is no longer accessed through a load balancer and reverse proxy. The 10.8 version of ArcGIS Enterprise Cloud Builder for Microsoft Azure creates ArcGIS Enterprise deployments that use a single Azure Application Gateway to access the portal and all federated servers – this is referred to as a version 2 (V2) deployment type.
