This post provides a clear path for customers who are evaluating and adopting Graviton2 instance types for performance improvements and cost-optimization. More and more customers want to make the move to Graviton2 to take advantage of these performance optimizations while saving money.
To see this benefit in action, we look at how to build a CI/CD pipeline using AWS CodePipeline and AWS CodeBuild that can build multi-architecture Docker images in parallel to aid you in evaluating and migrating to Graviton2. With CodePipeline and CodeBuild, we can automate the creation of architecture-specific Docker images, which can be pushed to Amazon Elastic Container Registry (Amazon ECR).
The steps in this process are as follows: The prerequisites for this solution are as follows: For this post, we create a sample “Hello World” application that self-reports the processor architecture.
