Introducing LayerStack’s Arm-based cloud virtual machines, powered by cloud-optimized CPU based on Arm architecture that delivers excellent cost-effective processing power, allowing you to easily complete the most demanding application development.
ARM, known as Advanced RISC Machine, or Reduced Instruction Set Computer, is designed to have the lowest possible energy consumption as it contains the CPU, RAM and the required sensors altogether. The Arm chips use minimal computing instructions, which requires fewer transistors in the circuitry, thus, providing as much as 30% better price performance by running efficiently per core and at a lower cost per core. Moreover, using more power-efficient Arm chips also helps cool down the heat tremendously to avoid server hardware not achieving maximum performance.
Powered by Ampere® Altra® Max Cloud Native Processors M128-30, based on ARM Neoverse N1 enterprise-level core architecture, Arm VMs can be able to maintain a sustainable performance in cloud computing that you have never experienced before.
Arm has already become the key component of mobile devices, the world’s largest technological ecosystem. The reasons are simply because of its low power consumption and big cost saving. It is certainly becoming the new industry standard that is suitable for any developer to build next-generation applications.
Since many web applications open one thread per request when running in the cloud, it would be the best match with Arm-based VM as it offers single threading and linear scalability over the x86 processors.
Developing apps, game simulators and Android system compilers on mobile platforms is more efficient and reduce cost when done on an Arm-based VMs, as well as eliminates the need for cross-compilation to simplify workflow.
With multiple Arm processors, it would be easier to dedicate a vCPU to each microservice in a cloud-native app so that it is less likely to run into noisy neighbor issues. Best of all, you pay less for a high processor count than on an x86-based VM.
Arm-based cloud VMs are engineered to efficiently run compute-intensive workloads and Android applications that need to scale out quickly, and also suitable for data analytics, web and app serving, CI/CD, microservices, media encoding, Java apps, AI & IoT software development and much more.
We conducted a Geekbench performance test on our Arm-powered processor, based on 2vCPU and 4GB RAM configuration against other major competitors and the result has shown that the UnixBench score is higher than all x86-based VMs, as well as fio test in MB/s and iops.
Our most reliable live support is accessible 24x7 to always keep your server uninterrupted.
At LayerStack, we know that cost for performance is a decisive factor for your business to choose Arm and x86 simply cannot surpass its attractive price-to-performance ratio. Get started today and migrate your applications to the ultra-fast Arm VMs, enabling significant cost savings without compromising performance.
