Entry-level Intel Xeons for on-prem better defend data and applications

Intel’s new processors for entry-level cloud services instances and servers have double the memory enclave capacity for Software Guard Extensions (SGX) — improving the ability to protect confidential data, the vendor has suggested.

The Xeon E-2300 CPUs, which adapt its Rocket Lake architecture for the desktop for entry-level servers, are expected to suit on-prem installations for smaller businesses as well as cloud services providers’ entry-level bare-metal instances, according to CRN magazine.

“Developers can use Intel SGX to partition their application into protected areas of execution in memory known as processor-hardened enclaves to enhance security even on a platform that becomes compromised,” according to the Intel product announcement.

This might help smaller organisations, which increasingly need to support multi-user applications from email, messaging, print servers and calendar programs, to databases, enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM) — involving more data sharing and collaboration, Intel noted.

“An on-premise server can help address the uncertainty for setup and ongoing cost of cloud services, support for legacy applications, regulatory compliance, and the need to protect sensitive customer data,” the vendor said.

“Some legacy applications cannot be migrated to the cloud.”

The Xeon E-2300 processors come in four, six or eight cores, with thermal design points (TDPs) of 65W-95W and faster memory, and speeds of up to 5.1 GHz.
