Leading high-performance processors AMD expanded its highest-end processor line AMD EPYC processor ecosystem with VMware that adds support for AMD Secure Encrypted Virtualization-Encrypted State (SEV-ES), that encrypts guest memory, in its newest vSphere release, 7.0U1.
Through this latest release, VMware vSphere now enables AMD SEV-ES that is under AMD Infinity Guard, which is a robust set of hardware-enabled features found in all 2nd Gen AMD EPYC processors. SEV-ES also provides encryption of CPU registers and provides VMware customers with easy-to-implement and enhanced security for their environments.
Whether in a single socket or dual-socket configurations, AMD EPYC processors provide VMware customers with an industry-leading performance processor for VMware virtualization workloads.
