Back in June 2015, Esri made an announcement about an upcoming offering, the ArcGIS Earth
ArcGIS Earth is part of Esri’s offer for Google customers and partners looking to transition to Esri software. Along with other capabilities of the ArcGIS platform, ArcGIS Earth provides an alternative to the Google Earth Enterprise Client.
Here is an Esri Video showcasing an alpha version of the product. Just yesterday, Esri started sending out Beta invites as part of Early Adopter program.
