Public Preview: AMD confidential VM option for Azure Data Explorer (ADX)
Published date: 23 May, 2023
Azure Data Explorer (ADX) customers can now specify an AMD-based confidential VM SKU for their ADX cluster nodes. Azure AMD-based confidential VMs provide a strong, hardware-enforced boundary that hardens the protection of the guest OS against host operator access and other Azure tenants. These VMs are designed to help ensure that data in use, in memory, is protected from unauthorized users using encryption keys generated by the underlying chipset and inaccessible to Azure operators. This will help customers analyze more sensitive data on ADX.
