AWS CodeBuild’s support for Arm-based workloads now run on an additional AWS Graviton2 machine type suited for less-resource intensive workloads.

In November 2019, CodeBuild launched support for native Arm builds on the first generation of AWS Graviton processors. Support for this platform allows customers to build and test on Arm without the need to emulate or cross-compile. In February 2021, CodeBuild introduced support for Graviton 2 processors which deliver a leap in performance and capabilities over first-generation AWS Graviton processors.

Before, CodeBuild customers targeting Arm were able to use an 8 vCPU machine to run their work loads. Now, customers can use a 2 vCPU Graviton2 machine, which is suited to run less resource-intensive workloads or balance speed with cost

CodeBuild’s support for Arm using Graviton2 is available in: US East (N. Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Oregon), US West (N. California), Europe (Ireland), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Asia Pacific (Singapore), and Europe (Frankfurt).
