Ampere has tested a set of 130+ images verified to run on the Dpsv5 platform through daily regressions. These are common software packages found in many Cloud-Native stacks that show the maturity of the ecosystem on the Dpsv5 instances.

Microsoft offers a comprehensive line of Azure Virtual Machines that can run a diverse and broad set of Linux workloads such as web servers, open-source databases, in-memory applications, big data analytics, gaming, media, and more.

Performance Spotlight


NGINX on Azure VMs based on Ampere

NGINX is a high-performance HTTP web server that is widely used for cloud web applications. As a web server, the performance of NGINX depends on compute, memory, and network performance making it a great test subject for the overall performance of our processors.

Virtual Machine Configurations

Ampere partners with the best system providers worldwide to deliver differentiated infrastructure for cloud native computing. The virtual machines currently offered by Azure are detailed below.


The new Dpsv5 series virtual machines are based on the Ampere Altra 64-bit Multi-Core Arm-based processor operating at up to 3.0GHz frequency. Dpsv5 VM-series are engineered to run several Linux enterprise workloads such as web servers, application servers, open-source databases, .NET applications, Java applications, gaming servers, media servers, and more.

The Dpsv5 virtual machine sizes provide an even better value proposition for a broad range of general-purpose Linux workloads compared to equivalent x86-based Azure VMs.

The Dplsv5 virtual machine sizes offer one of the lowest price points of entry within the general-purpose Azure Virtual Machines portfolio. The VMs provide 2GiBs per vCPU and do not have any temporary storage. These VMs are engineered to provide a compelling value proposition for many general-purpose Linux workloads that do not require larger amounts of RAM per vCPU.
