If there’s one thing that the past several years of IT evolution have taught us, it’s that choice is king. This starts with enterprises not wanting to be locked into a closed, single vendor technology stack. Choice now not only includes the option of footprint - from bare-metal servers to public cloud instances - but also the underlying architecture powering a technology stack.
For many organizations, this means considering Arm processors as part of their computing mix, a consideration that was highlighted last night with the launch of Amazon’s EC2 A1 instances.
In support of Red Hat’s continued commitment to customer choice across multiple computing architectures, we’re pleased to say that Red Hat Enterprise Linux for ARM AMIs are available immediately on Amazon EC2 A1 instances. This means that customers seeking to use a multi-architecture approach across the hybrid cloud can use the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform to fuel their mission-critical workloads, even on Arm instances in AWS Cloud.
