This is a complete architectural redesign, with new technology being integrated into this deployment option for ArcGIS Enterprise. To achieve our goals of scalability, resilience and manageability, and most importantly to meet our quality standards, we have had to make some scope tradeoffs. At launch, functionality will be similar to a base deployment of ArcGIS Enterprise, with the portal experience, support for publishing, data analysis, hosted data, federating ArcGIS Server and Image Server, and more. However, we have had to defer support for certain apps or extensions, customizations, the ability to federate some server roles, and more. This will be documented by the time we launch, and we encourage you to reach out to your Esri representative if you’re considering Kubernetes and need more details. ArcGIS Enterprise remains one product, and our intent for the Kubernetes deployment option is to provide the same GIS capabilities you get with Windows and Linux.
