Performance and Reliability, Intelligently Designed for Growth

The demands of technology for small businesses and cloud hosting require intelligently designed solutions to fuel their growth

Business computing needs are growing in sophistication and complexity. Servers 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 the 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 groundup with your needs in mind. Intel Xeon processors deliver trusted performance and proven innovation, starting with our entry Intel Xeon E processors. 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 processors.

On-premise servers and bare metal cloud services built on Intel Xeon E processors offer a foundation of essential capabilities to help protect and support your growing and changing business.

82% of small businesses agree using new technology effectively is key to their company’s survival and growth.1

Server-Grade Solutions for Small Business

Get more from your business with an entry server hardware refresh

Small businesses are looking for cost-effective server solutions that deliver productivity, reliability, and hardware-enhanced security, while complementing 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.

Small businesses need technology that helps them run multi-user applications such as email, messaging, print servers, calendar programs, databases, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), and other software that facilitates data sharing and collaboration. 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 like these.

$82,220 to $256,000

Unplanned downtime cost for a single event reported by over 80% of small and medium businesses.2

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 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 fast and respond to customers quickly 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.

Essential Hardware for Entry-Level Cloud Hosting and Security Services

For server applications and workloads which do not require the performance scale and advanced capabilities of Intel Xeon Scalable processors, Intel Xeon E processors offer a compelling alternative. Designed for single-processor server platforms, these power-efficient and cost-effective processors feature the essential server features and capabilities needed for entry-level hardware solutions, making them an excellent hardware option for bare metal cloud hosting services.

Like the latest Intel Xeon Scalable processors, Intel Xeon E processors also 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. 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 Scalable processors and Intel Xeon E processors with Intel SGX can be used in concert with existing data center infrastructure, to help protect the most sensitive portions of an application or data being used in a workload or service. For smaller capacity workloads enabled for Intel SGX, including encryption Key Management Services, Intel Xeon E processors offer entry-level support for more secure cloud services.
