What’s new about Intel Xeon E-2200 processors? Intel Xeon E-2200 processors are now available for entry-level servers, delivering essential performance for businesses and advanced security for cloud services. The introduction of these processors for servers builds upon Intel’s foundation of twenty years of Intel Xeon platform leadership, now offering entry server customers higher frequencies, more cores, and advancements in security. The refreshed 4-core and 6-core processors deliver faster speeds, while the new 8-core offerings enable servers to operate at frequencies reaching up to 5.0 GHz (with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0) and feature expanded capacity for hardware-enhanced security using Intel® Secure Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX).
What do Intel Xeon E-2200 processors bring to small businesses? Intel Xeon E-2200 processors are designed to help small businesses fuel their growth with essential performance, reliability, security and expandability. With support for the latest server operating systems, and the performance to run demanding business applications including file-sharing, storage and backup, virtualization and employee productivity solutions, Intel Xeon E-2200 processors are engineered to support the needs of today’s small businesses. And with Intel® Server Platform Services supported across all Intel Xeon E-2200 processors, entry servers featuring these processors can also be easily monitored and managed remotely by small businesses who use a managed service provider for IT support.
How do Intel Xeon E-2200 processors enhance cloud security? The latest generation of Intel Xeon E processors provide enhanced security features for cloud service providers. Intel Xeon E-2200 processors support Intel SGX, which deliver an additional layer of hardware-based security and manageability features to the data center to further protect sensitive customer data when used with properly enabled cloud applications. A growing ecosystem of developers is using Intel SGX to partition their application code and data into processor-hardened, encrypted areas of execution in memory. With the new 8-core Intel Xeon E-2200 processors, the capacity of these encrypted areas has doubled. Intel is also contributing the Intel SGX Software Development Kit to the Confidential Computing Consortium project in the Linux Foundation to support a broad industry push to address this latest frontier for data confidentiality in the cloud.
