AWS CodeBuild’s support for Arm-based workloads now run on AWS Graviton2 without any additional configuration.
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. Now, CodeBuild customers targeting Arm benefit from the enhanced capabilities of AWS Graviton2 processors. The upgrade delivers a major leap in performance and capabilities over first-generation AWS Graviton processors. They deliver 7x more performance, 4x more compute cores, 5x faster memory, and 2x larger caches.
