The demands of technology for small businesses and cloud services require intelligently designed solutions to fuel their growth.
Performance and Security, Intelligently Designed for Growth
Business computing needs are growing in sophistication and complexity. Servers and workstations that are just a few years old are no longer sufficient to support the demands of today’s workloads, which are increasing in capabilities to deliver business intelligence, acceleration and agility. New business opportunities, customers, and workloads drive a need for tools and technology that will help you win and stay ahead of the competition. With a wide-range of solutions in the marketplace, it can be difficult to identify the right solution for your needs of today and prepare for a winning future.
At Intel, we appreciate these challenges and have worked to understand your needs and demands. We have partnered with industry leaders and solution providers to deliver you a professional-grade solution built from the ground-up with your needs in mind. The Intel® Xeon® processors deliver trusted performance and proven innovation, starting with our new entry Intel® Xeon® E processor family. As your business grows and demands increase, so does the Intel® Xeon® processor portfolio with performance scale and capabilities that extend to our Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor family of solutions.
Entry servers, secure cloud services, and entry and mobile workstations built on the Intel® Xeon® E processor offer a foundation of capabilities that support your growing and changing demands.
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.

Introducing the New Intel® Xeon® E-2200 Processor
Featuring improvements in processor speeds, higher core count options, expanded enclave capacities, and more, Intel® Xeon® E-2200 processors deliver a significant impact, especially compared with hardware that is just a few years old. With up to a 2X overall performance increase,1 compared to 2015 Intel® Xeon® E3-1200v5 processors, Intel® Xeon® E-2200 processors deliver performance to manage today’s most demanding entry server workloads and offer significant advantages over much of the existing installed base. Even compared to the prior generation of Intel® Xeon® E-2100 processors, Intel® Xeon® E-2200 processors deliver up to a 1.2X increase in performance.2 And both of these latest generations are pin compatible, and use the same Intel® 240 series chipsets.
