Entry Server Solutions for Small Business

Experience up to 2X more performance with an entry server hardware refresh.1

Small businesses are looking for server solutions that deliver productivity, reliability, and hardware-enhanced security, and complement other IT investment options such as cloudbased 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

Impementing a powerful server is also a smart investment in security and growth. You’ll gain the power to support the features of modern operating systems, including the added peace of mind from timely security patches which help to keep your sensitive business and customer data steps ahead of evolving security threats. New hardware with a modern operating system can also help you more easily 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.

Advanced Security for Enhanced Secure Cloud Services

Intel® Xeon® E processors feature an advanced security technology, known as Intel® Software Guard Extensions (Intel® SGX). Software enhanced with Intel® SGX helps protect application code and data from disclosure or modification, enhancing the security of cloud service workloads and applications. 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.

Intel® technologies’ features and benefits depend on system configuration and may require enabled hardware, software or service activation. Performance varies depending on system configuration.

No product or component can be absolutely secure.

Tests document performance of components on a particular test, in specific systems. Differences in hardware, software, or configuration will affect actual performance. For more complete information about performance and benchmark results, visit http://www.intel.com/benchmarks.

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more complete information visit http://www.intel.com/benchmarks.

Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX) provides higher throughput to certain processor operations. Due to varying processor power characteristics, utilizing AVX instructions may cause a) some parts to operate at less than the rated frequency and b) some parts with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 to not achieve any or maximum turbo frequencies. Performance varies depending on hardware, software, and system configuration and you can learn more at http://www.intel.com/go/turbo.

Intel’s compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel® microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel® microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel® microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.

Cost reduction scenarios described are intended as examples of how a given Intel-based product, in the specified circumstances and configurations, may affect future costs and provide cost savings. Circumstances will vary. Intel does not guarantee any costs or cost reduction.

Intel does not control or audit third-party benchmark data or the web sites referenced in this document. You should visit the referenced web site and confirm whether referenced data are accurate.
