Build or migrate an application to Amazon EC2 instances powered by Arm-based AWS Graviton2 processors for a chance to win $10,000 cash and a trip to re:Invent 2021


AWS Graviton processors are custom built by Amazon Web Services using 64-bit Arm Neoverse cores to deliver the best price performance for your cloud workloads running in Amazon EC2. AWS Graviton2 are the latest generation Arm-based processors that power a range of general purpose, compute optimized, and memory optimized EC2 instances

Graviton2-based instances can be used to run a wide variety of workloads including application servers, micro-services, high-performance computing, CPU-based machine learning inference, video encoding, electronic design automation, gaming, open-source databases, and in-memory caches. Linux-based applications built using programming languages such as Java, Python, PHP, Go can be easily run on Graviton2-based instances. See here for what the customers building with AWS Graviton2 instances and the benefits they are realizing.

We are challenging you to build or migrate innovative applications on AWS Graviton2-based EC2 instances. Check out the resources below to learn more about Graviton2 processors and their instances, as well as the applications you can build or migrate.
