Anaconda for Linux on the aarch64 (arm64) platform optimized for Amazon Web Services’ Graviton2 processors enables end-to-end data science in the cloud, including development, training, testing and production. Data scientists can leverage the power and savings of Graviton2 while still using favorite tools and frameworks such as Conda, SciKit-Learn, and XGBoost.
Graviton2 processors are custom built by AWS using 64-bit Arm Neoverse cores. Graviton2-based instances offer up to 40% better price performance over comparable current-generation x86-based instances for a wide variety of workloads, including high-performance computing and CPU-based machine learning inference.
As with our current linux-64 (x86-based) conda packages, linux-aarch64 packages are supported in Anaconda’s “defaults” channel and will be regularly updated as the open-source community publishes new releases.
