ArcGIS 10.1 AMI now available - my thoughts



The latest from the ArcGIS Server Blog about 10.1

Of great interest to my team is the availability of the 10.1 AMI both for the Windows platform and significiantly, the Ubuntu environment too! 10.1 has been in beta for a while and will continue to be in this state until later this year. 10.1 is still slated for a 2012 release.

From what I have seen (and what was already hinted at the Esri Dev Summit this year) - ArcGIS Server 10.1 is a radical change in the current architecture. Gone is the ArcGISSOM, the ArcGISSOC has disappeared and AGS now ships with a built in web server! All making it very portable and quite sexy. I just hope performance matches the expectations.

Clearly, 10.1 is designed for large deployments and cloud environments.Will update more when I get more time on it.
