AMD64 or Aarch64 support for App Platform

App Platform only supports binaries built for the AMD64 or AArch64 CPU architectures.

Does this mean that App Platform supports Aarch64? My Docker image at runtime lists that the machine is based on AMD64.

Is there a performance difference between the architectures for the hosts? Are different CPUs used, or is one of the two supported architectures emulated?

App Platform does not support aarch64. We’ve corrected the documentation. Sorry about the confusion.
