Replication and geodata services

Available with Standard or Advanced license.

ArcGIS Server allows you to configure geodata services using ArcGIS Pro. A geodata service provides access to a geodatabase remotely using ArcGIS Server. Beginning with the ArcGIS Pro 3.0 release, you can share a geodata service to ArcGIS Enterprise 10.9.1 or higher. If you have a stand-alone ArcGIS Server, you can save an offline service definition and then publish it to your stand-alone ArcGIS Server.

If you have existing legacy geodata services created via ArcCatalog or ArcMap, you can use them in ArcGIS Pro to create and synchronize replicas. If you upgrade your ArcGIS Server, with legacy geodata services, to version 11, you must change the service runtime to ArcGIS Pro. See migrating to the ArcGIS Pro service runtime for more details.

The geodatabase replication tools support local geodatabases through geodatabase connections and remote geodatabases through geodata services. Wherever a geodatabase connection is required, you can supply your geodata service instead. The geodata services are accessed via server connections in ArcGIS Pro.
