Azure Dedicated Host provides a single-tenant physical server to host your Azure Virtual Machines for Windows and Linux. The server capacity is not shared with other customers.
You can now deploy DCsv2 Azure Virtual Machines to Dedicated Hosts. The DCsv2-series can help protect the confidentiality and integrity of your data and code while it’s processed in the public cloud. The new DCsv2_Type1 Dedicated Host SKUs feature the latest generation of Intel XEON E-2288G Processor with SGX technology. This new offering will enable you to build secure enclave-based applications to protect your code and data while it’s in use.
Example use cases include confidential multiparty data sharing, fraud detection, anti-money laundering, blockchain, confidential usage analytics, intelligence analysis, and confidential machine learning.
With this update, we continue to expand the range of workloads that you can run on Azure Dedicated Hosts while addressing specific organizational compliance and security requirements.
