ArcGIS Pro on Amazon Web Services

ArcGIS Pro can be used in Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud environments. In the AWS environment, the Workspaces Graphics Bundle instance type should be used. The WorkSpaces Graphics Bundle instance offers an NVIDIA GPU to deliver the necessary GPU support needed by ArcGIS Pro for a rich user experience. The GPU used in the WorkSpaces Graphics Bundle instance is passed through to the instance; it is not shared. This supports graphics rendering in ArcGIS Pro.

If you have an Amazon account with the proper access, you can create workspaces.

The steps to create a WorkSpaces Graphics Bundle instance are basically the same as the steps to launch WorkSpaces in the Amazon console. It is important to note that from the console, you can set up various options or bundles. However, to get the best rendering performance from ArcGIS Pro, you need the WorkSpaces Graphics bundle with Windows 10. Once your WorkSpaces instance setup is complete, download and connect to Amazon WorkSpaces Client.

EC2 instances provide a full Windows desktop experience. EC2 has many instance types available to support different functionality and needs. However, for the best ArcGIS Pro user experience, G4 and G5 instances are optimal and provide flexible deployment options. This flexibility provides the resources to increase or decrease CPU and RAM configurations between multiple profile options; for example, G4.xlarge can be upgraded to G4.2xlarge.
