AMD has also announced its continued momentum and collaboration with Microsoft Azure. The 3rd Generation AMD EPYC CPU is now available in the latest generation of Dasv5 and Easv5 Azure Virtual Machines. DCasv5 and ECasv5 are new confidential VMs that are using the newest sophisticated security capabilities available in 3rd Gen EPYC CPUs, such as Secure Encrypted Virtualization-Secure Nested Paging (SEV-SNP).
The new Azure confidential VMs, DCasv5 and ECasv5, which are the first EPYC processor-based confidential VMs at Azure and the first confidential VMs to leverage SEV-SNP, will allow customers to encrypt data in their security-focused applications in use, transit, and at rest. When compared to previous EPYC processor-based Microsoft Azure VMs, the upgraded Dasv5 VMs, optimized for general purpose workloads, and the Easv5 VMs, designed for memory-based workloads, give superior price-performance for most general purpose and memory-intensive applications.
Customers with stringent security and confidentiality needs for their workloads can utilize Azure confidential VMs. These confidential VMs benefit from strong hardware-based security features provided by AMD EPYC CPUs, allowing them to excel at:
- Privacy-preserving data analytics
- Workloads needing robust encryption
- Sharing data between firms with less exposure to other data while benefiting from shared insights is a win-win situation
“By using the new Azure Dav5 and Eav5 VMs with the latest AMD EPYC CPUs, customers will get access to leading performance and fantastic price-performance for general purpose and memory optimized workloads,” said Lynn Comp, corporate vice president, Cloud Business Unit, AMD. “Beyond that, Azure is using the advanced security features of EPYC CPUs for the new confidential VMs, so their customers can benefit from both performance and security for their workloads.”
