Azure virtual machines get Arm support by Microsoft

Up to 50 per cent better performance will be offered by Azure virtual machines with Ampere Altra Arm-based processors than comparable x86-based VMs for scale-out workloads

A preview of Arm support has been announced by the tech giant Microsoft on Azure virtual machines (Arm VMs) via its network with Ampere Computing.

Last year Ampere, a start-up that makes server chips, announced that it had signed up Microsoft and Tencent Holdings as major customers, ZDNet reported.

“We are now supporting Arm on Azure as well. This has been a long journey to bring up Ampere on Azure with Windows as the Root Host OS! We are also supporting Windows 11 Arm VMs in preview for developers!” Hari Pulapaka, the director of PM for Azure Host OS and the Windows OS platform, wrote on Twitter.

“FYI all Windows developers who have been asking for VM support in Azure, it’s here now”, he added.

Up to 50 per cent better performance will be offered by Azure virtual machines with Ampere Altra Arm-based processors than comparable x86-based VMs for scale-out workloads, Microsoft officials said.

These new Azure virtual machines are also for Web servers, application servers, open-source databases, gaming servers, media servers, and more, they added.

To help customers manage complexity and seamlessly run modern, dynamic and scalable applications, the new Azure virtual machines, featuring the Ampere Altra Arm-based processor, further extend the company’s portfolio of compute solutions.

The company said Azure customers will benefit from the improvements the new VMs provide in terms of scalability, performance, and operational efficiency.
