Update 9/15/18 – Arc2Earth no longer offers subscriptions or services.
Zekiah supports many organizations, especially in the federal government, that have a need to run ArcGIS Server on networks that are not connected to the internet. Oftentimes, these organizations use tiled basemaps that are built from data or services that are available (whether free or by subscription) from the internet. While ArcGIS Server can produce these tile caches, organizations with production servers on disconnected networks can find it impractical to do so. Although the cost of running two ArcGIS Servers is sometimes a factor, we find more often that IT and information security policies make it difficult for these organizations to stand up servers on internet-connected networks. In such situations, a desktop solution is preferable.
