Docker Image Manifest V2, Schema 2 - includes Manifest Lists which allow registries to store multiplatform images under a single "image:tag" reference
Azure Container Registry supports images that meet the Open Container Initiative (OCI) Image Format Specification. Packaging formats include Singularity Image Format (SIF).
Azure Container Registry supports the OCI Distribution Specification, a vendor-neutral, cloud-agnostic spec to store, share, secure, and deploy container images and other content types (artifacts). The specification allows a registry to store a wide range of artifacts in addition to container images. You use tooling appropriate to the artifact to push and pull artifacts. For an example, see Push and pull an OCI artifact using an Azure container registry.
