This deck provides and overview of Intel® Data Center Blocks, highly integrated systems that include not only a board and chassis but also processors, SSDs, Ethernet, fabric, and even memory. We have pre-defined SKUs that are optimized for specific workloads or segments including HPC, cloud, business and networking, and the option to custom design a system for one of these segments or for the workload or segment of your choice. Also covered is Intel® Select Solutions and current promotions.
As security threats continue to evolve and increase, security IT officers are driving for a holistic and expanded view to protect their critical infrastructure. This includes protecting the server all the way down to the firmware at the lowest layers of the platform, where threats are most difficult to detect. While technologies exist to protect the higher layers of the infrastructure stack, system IT users need assurance that the underlying platform launching these security technologies can be trusted.
To address this, Intel has developed the Intel® Data Center Block for Business - PFR Server Block. Featuring Intel® Platform Firmware Resilience (Intel® PFR) technology, the PFR Server Block enables platform security starting in the factory through power-on, system boot, OS load, and beyond¹. With this oﬀering, customers can protect firmware from being intercepted, detect firmware corruption, and automatically restore a system if malware is detected. The ability to correct firmware corruptions is a new and innovative capability, and an ideal solution for security-sensitive industries including government, financial institutions, and critical infrastructure.
This pre-configured, fully validated rack-based server block is designed for cost-efficient web hosting, enterprise applications, and appliance scenarios.
To help address the demand for entry level solutions with enterprise-grade performance, Intel is providing preconfigured, fully-validated Entry Server Blocks that will help accelerate time to market with server solutions optimized for the needs of small enterprises and CSPs.
