AWS Graviton processors are custom-built to enable the best price performance for workloads in Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2). AWS Graviton-based instances are available globally across 23 Amazon Web Services (AWS) Regions.

Thousands of customers—from startups to large enterprises such as Intuit, Snap, EPIC Games, and Lyft—are realizing significant price performance using AWS Graviton-based instances in Amazon EC2. This includes a variety of workloads such as application servers, microservices, high-performance computing, CPU-based machine learning inference, video encoding, electronic design automation, gaming, open-source databases, and in-memory caches.

As customers adopt AWS Graviton-based EC2 instances, they need the right software solutions to help integrate, deploy, monitor, and secure their Linux-based and containerized workloads.

We are excited to announce the new AWS Graviton Ready Program, part of the AWS Service Ready Program which validates software products built by AWS Partners that integrate with specific services such as AWS Graviton.

AWS Graviton Ready Partners offer AWS customers Graviton-enabled software offerings, including operating systems and platform services, security, monitoring and observability, CI/CD, data and analytics, and cloud devices. AWS Graviton Ready Partners validate, optimize, and support their solutions on AWS Graviton-based instances.


Launch Partner Showcase

AWS Graviton Ready software solutions are vetted by AWS Partner Solutions Architects to ensure customers have a consistent experience using the software on AWS Graviton-based instances just as they do on other instances. This parity makes it easy for customers to discover software solutions that integrate with AWS Graviton so they can run their workloads in Amazon EC2 with optimal price performance.

We invite you to explore the following AWS Graviton Ready Partner software offerings recommended by AWS!
