NLT Deploys Esri Enterprise Using Everything-as-Code (EaC) Automation Model

The New Light Technologies, Inc. (NLT) Cloud & Managed Service Offering (MSO) Team has developed automated deployment patterns for the Esri ArcGIS Server Enterprise 10.7 platform. The team’s solution includes deployment of ArcGIS for Server, Portal for ArcGIS, GeoEvent Server, Relational Datastore, SpatioTemporal Datastore, and Image Server.  It has been implemented in AWS for a large federal organization following industry best practices for scalability, high availability, and security. The deployment also includes configuration of secure servers and an application load balancer over https.

NLT’s Managed Service Offering now includes a hosted Enterprise Esri Server solution capability.  This solution allows customers to quickly deploy an optimized Esri Server stack, hosted on AWS, Azure, or other cloud platforms.  These environment builds follow industry best design patterns for security and management. With Infrastructure-As-Code (IaC), all environments are deployed programmatically via Hashicorp Terraform and are monitored for compliance with the latest in cloud security compliance solutions like Fugue.  The NLT-adopted Everything-As-Code (EaC) DevSecOps model incorporates the advantages of IaC for the DevSecOps environment by reducing the cost, increasing the speed, and minimizing the security risks from a typical DevOps approach.

“This current build takes minutes to complete and incorporates all required technical configuration details needed to run securely in a public or private cloud environment” said NLT’s lead Cloud Architect David Williams

It has traditionally been a challenge for many organizations to easily procure, deploy, and maintain enterprise geospatial infrastructures to meet changing functional, security, and business requirements.
