This year, the Microsoft Build conference hosted more than 200,000 developers, IT professionals, and others seeking to advance their skills for cloud development, Artificial Intelligence (AI), .NET, and the latest innovations, tools, and technologies in the Microsoft ecosystem.
As part of that ecosystem, Ampere Computing participated in the event under the theme, “Good for the Developer, Good for Your Pocket, and Good for Our Planet” and shared our expertise in sessions designed to help developers migrate to our cloud native architecture and deploy their solutions on Azure Ampere Virtual Machines.
Developer Stories about Porting and Optimization
We were joined by partners and customers who participated in conversations about cloud native solutions and their success with Azure Ampere VMs, including these key topics:
Each of these testimonials and case studies highlighted the performance, power, and cost benefits of running on Ampere-powered VMs in Azure.
Our team of Ampere experts weighed in on a variety of topics, including:

Software Performance, Compatibility and Consistency
During the event, developers and cloud infrastructure professionals—eager to witness the capabilities of these VMs firsthand—attended in-person demonstrations of the capabilities and benefits of VMs with Azure powered by the Ampere Altra processors.
At the end of the first day, we sponsored our first developer meetup, “Ping Pong and Pints with Ampere”. Besides the obvious fun of getting together with like-minded professionals, Ampere experts engaged in conversations that revealed some of the topics and issues top of mind in the developer community.
Key issues in the Microsoft Azure community include:
Performance continues to be king for the software developer.
Software compatibility and multi-architecture migration is a concern.
Consistency is a core element of performance.
“One Key feature that Ampere provides is that fact that each CPU core is actually a full core and there is no hyperthreading in the picture and therefore one VCPU is really one full core & we can take advantage of this property while keeping the latency under control.”

A Growing Software Ecosystem and Community
The focus of the Microsoft Build event was to foster engagement and knowledge sharing with the developer community. At Ampere, we appreciate that developing communities is key to building a software ecosystem and making an architectural transition. At Microsoft Build, we connected with hundreds of developers and fellow technology enthusiasts to foster valuable relationships, exchange ideas, and explore potential collaborations. If you haven’t already, be sure to join our online developer community forum.
At Ampere, we dream big. We don’t want developers to feel encumbered by legacy technology and constraints. If you’re looking for high performance, scalable, and efficient compute, try Ampere based VMs. It’s good for the developer, good for your pocket, and good for our planet.
Built for sustainable cloud computing, Ampere’s first Cloud Native Processors deliver predictable high performance, platform scalability, and power efficiency unprecedented in the industry.
