Limited preview: Make workloads on AMD-backed virtual machines confidential without recompiling code
Published date: 17 March, 2021
Announcing the limited preview of AMD-backed Azure confidential computing virtual machines. Microsoft is further broadening the confidential computing options available to Azure customers through our technology partnership with AMD, specifically by being the first major cloud provider to offer confidential virtual machines on the new AMD EPYC™ 7003 series processors. This new approach complements existing Azure confidential computing solutions such as confidential containers for Azure Kubernetes Service and opens the possibility to create new confidential applications without requiring code modifications which in turn substantially simplifies the process of creating confidential applications.
