Nested Virtualization support on EC2 Graviton 3 *.metal instances



We have a use-case where we need to run nested virtual machines on our Linux based Graviton3 metal instances. So far we have managed to run a virtual machine, Ubuntu 20.04, however the virtual machine doesn't expose /dev/kvm.

Is this feature supported ?

In terms of Graviton3 which utilizes the Architecture ARMv8.4-a [1] from the 8.3 version onward nested virtualization is supported. This is only the case for the Bare Metal instances, as you mentioned.

From a hardware and architecture perspective this is supported. It would come down to the software that you are using to perform this.
