We are excited to announce native support for hosted CI/CD on Armv8-A architecture! This launch is a result of a close partnership with Arm and Packet to give Arm developers quick and easy access to native test infrastructure, enabling them to significantly improve productivity and reliability with fast builds and identification of bugs earlier in the development process.
In the absence of readily available CI/CD services that natively supports Arm, developers relied on emulators while building and validating their code, which does not always detect architecture specific artifacts being introduced in their codebases. As the adoption of the Armv8-A architecture continues to grow, it is critical for organizations to have easy access to a CI/CD platform that natively supports Arm and doesn’t require resources and effort to set up and manage. Today's announcement addresses this need with a solution that offers hosted build and test infrastructure with no installation or management overhead.
This announcement would not have been possible without tremendous contributions from Packet and Arm. The Armv8-a machines are hosted on Packet's cloud and the Arm team has been key in driving this effort to fruition. Read the entire text of the announcement here.
