I haven't gotten to the point of deploying one yet, but I've built them 
on aarch64. It takes a lot of memory. A hello world vertx application 
built with native-image takes nearly 4GB of RAM to build. You will 
probably want to build your native images on AWS graviton2 instances for 
more speed and available memory.
