Azure Virtual Machines with Arm-based Ampere Altra Processor
Azure Arm-based VMs are engineered to efficiently run scale-out workloads, web servers, application servers, open-source databases, cloud-native as well as rich .NET applications, Java applications, gaming servers, media servers, and more.
Arm Welcomes Microsoft Cloud Customers
Available with .NET 5 and .NET 6. With C# 10 and F# 6, .NET 6 delivers language improvements that simplify your code.
Microsoft Visual C++ tools not only allow you to just run your apps, but also to build natively for Arm, on Arm.
With Microsoft's contributions to OpenJDK, Java applications run on a wide range of Arm systems with no additional changes.
Customers can deploy and manage containerized applications with the Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) running on Ampere Altra Arm-based processors.
Azure Arm-based VMs support Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, Canonical Ubuntu Linux, CentOS, Debian, AlmaLinux, Flatcar, and Windows 11 Professional and Enterprise Edition on Arm.
Azure Arm-Based General-Purpose and Memory-Optimized VMs
Dpsv5 VM-series: engineered to run several Linux enterprise workloads, such as web servers, application servers, open-source databases, .NET applications, Java applications, gaming servers, media servers, and more.
Dpldsv5 VM-series: offer a combination of vCPUs, memory, and local storage for cost-effectively running workloads that do not require larger amounts of RAM per vCPU.
Epsv5 VM-series: can meet the requirements associated with memory-intensive Linux-based workloads, including open-source databases, in-memory caching applications, gaming, and data-analytics engines.
