Entry Server Solutions for Small Business

Experience up to 48% more entry server performance for small business.1

67% of small businesses say technology solutions help them run their business better.2

Small businesses are looking for server solutions that deliver productivity, reliability, and hardware-enhanced security, and complement other IT investment options such as cloud-based services. An on-premise server can help address a number of challenges, including the uncertainty for setup and ongoing cost of cloud services, support for legacy applications, regulatory compliance, and the need to protect sensitive customer data. A mix of cloud services and in-house solutions provides the flexibility to choose and mix the correct balance for your business needs.

An entry server built with the Intel® Xeon® E processor is a smart investment positioning you for growth while providing a reliable, always available solution to protect your data and host critical business software solutions. No matter the size of your business, the value of your data is enormous. Keep it accessible and better protected at all times with an affordable Intel® Xeon® E processor-based server.

A dedicated, on-premise server delivers answers for a number of small business customers including:

  • Bandwidth constraints, latency, or heavy data usage that cause performance issues
  • Uncertainty and inability to plan for setup and ongoing cloud service costs
  • Preference for up-front payment over extended payment schedule
  • Some legacy applications cannot be migrated to the cloud
  • Regulatory, compliance, or data sovereignty requirements mandate that data must be secured on-premises

Implementing a powerful server is also a smart investment in growth. You’ll gain the power to deploy new business-class applications and tools that can help you increase sales and improve margins. A server based on the Intel® Xeon® E processor lets you access your information faster and respond to customers sooner from any device on your network. Keep valuable business data safe, help you and your employees become more productive, and position your company for growth with a powerful and affordable small business server based on the Intel® Xeon® E processor.

Hardware-Enhanced Security and Reliability
A primary motivator in considering a professional-grade entry server or workstation is the increasing need for hardware-enhanced security and reliability of the Intel® Xeon® processor family. The Intel® Xeon® E-2100 processor includes support for the following hardware-enhanced security features:

  • Intel® Data Protection Technology (Intel® DPT): Accelerate encryption and decryption, enhance security, performance, and protect your system using software enhanced with Intel® Data Protection Technology
  • Enhanced Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX): Software enhanced with Intel® Software Guard Extensions protect application code and data from disclosure and modification, enhancing the security of your workloads and applications
  • Intel® Authenticate: Intel® Authenticate solution delivers customizable multifactor authentication options to fit your IT policy needs while giving you a comprehensive solution that is easy to deploy

Advanced Security for Enhanced Secure Cloud Services
Intel® Xeon® E processors feature an advanced security technology, known as Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX), which can help protect selected code and data from disclosure or modification. 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. Intel® Xeon® E processors with Intel® SGX can be used in concert with existing data center infrastructure, to protect the most sensitive portions of an application or data being used in a workload or service.

Businesses and cloud service providers are using Intel® Xeon® E processors with Intel® SGX to protect a variety of applications and data. Here are some examples of how businesses are using Intel® SGX:

  • Enables multi-party, joint computation on sensitive data, in a privacy-preserving manner
  • Supports encrypted database operations
  • Running unmodified applications within enclave
  • Trust established for protecting and virtualizing network functions
  • Protect encryption keys and/or Hardware Security Module (HSM) replacement
  • Protecting keys on local file system; hardening disk protection, building scalable cloud Key Management Service (KMS)
  • Secure transaction processing for Crypto currency, Secure Contracts, and Hyper ledger protection
  • Secure IoT edge devices and cloud communications

Intel® Xeon® E processors deliver a powerful component in enhanced application and data protection.
