Ampere and Equinix have collaborated to bring you a set of images verified to run on the c3.large.arm64 platform through daily regressions. These are common software packages found in many Cloud-Native stacks that show the maturity of the ecosystem on the c3.large.arm64 bare metal instances.
Ampere partners with the best system providers worldwide to deliver differentiated infrastructure for Cloud-Native computing. The platforms currently offered by Equinix Cloud Infrastructure is detailed below.
It’s not every day that you see an 80-core processor that can run every core flat out at 3.0 GHz. Well, today is that day, thanks to the Ampere® Altra® Arm-based processor. Built from scratch for a cloud-native world, Ampere Altra is designed to deliver predictable high performance, linear scalability, and power efficiency. To take advantage of all these cores, we’ve outfitted the c3.large.arm with 256 GB of RAM, 1.9 TB of NVMe, and our standard 2 x 25 Gbps network ports.

|Cores||80 cores @ 3.0 GHz|
|Boot||2 x 960 GB NVMe|
|Memory options||256 GB|

Cloud-native applications are specifically designed to run in the modern data center environment and cover a wide range of capabilities. These are often containerized and packaged for easy deployment and then delivered via DockerHub or other image repositories.
Cloud Native Base Images are used to construct other, more complex and feature complete images for all manner of workload. The choice of base image is driven by the use model of the deployment or OS requirements of the software being deployed.
Databases are the backbone of cloud-native application deployments. There are many different types of databases designed to meet the growing needs of global-scale deployments. Cloud-native software utilizes technologies such as SQL, NoSQL, time-series, and everything in between.
Cloud-native infrastructure is the glue that makes hyperscale possible.
Developing software requires the right toolset, and that begins with one of many programming languages.
