We want to serve OpenStreetMap Tiles locally using ArcGis Server 10 to use as base maps in our ESRI Silverlight and Flex GIS clients.

We've downloaded our regions OSM file and created PNGs using Maperitive for Zoom 1 thru 18 and tested with Leaflet. Also used a script to generate PGW files for each PNG.

Is this goal possible, should we use raster datasets or something different ?
