Store, manage, and access your data
To host data in the cloud for your applications, you can use ArcGIS Platform data services. The services allow you to store, manage, and access private (currently in beta) and public data. You can use tools such as the developer dashboard to import existing data, create new datasets, or publish data to new formats. All data is managed and accessed as a hosted layer and each layer is powered by a data service. Once hosted, you can easily access data services with applications.
