We strive to make our Cloud as secure and technologically advanced as possible to solve our clients’ wide range of tasks. Today, we’d like to speak about our cooperation with Supermicro. Together with the Intel SGX technology, their servers help us build a truly secure and powerful infrastructure for our customers.

Supermicro is a world-leading manufacturer of servers and their components, as well as data storage and transmission technologies.
One of the company’s main products is a lineup of Twin server systems. Thanks to their special architecture, they provide high throughput while physically isolating the traffic on every computing node. This makes them both powerful and secure.
The Twin family includes many high-performance and reliable models. For example, the Supermicro BigTwin server systems, which possess four computing nodes in the 2U form factor.
Each node supports:
Such architecture is incredibly powerful, secure, and ensures high throughput while maintaining low energy consumption.
Data security is critical for many of our clients, including companies from fintech, retail, e-commerce, and gamedev. Therefore, together with Supermicro, we try to make our products as secure as possible.
This is facilitated by the Intel SGX technology, which provides a set of CPU operation codes to place private data and code into enclaves (private memory regions). Information in such enclaves is reliably protected from any external threats.
As a result, this technology creates additional protection from unauthorized access and modification: neither the cloud provider nor any external actor can gain access, even if the cloud servers are compromised.
In G-Core Labs Cloud, we integrated Intel SGX into our virtual machines.
Supermicro integrated the technology into its Twin physical servers. About 50% of server memory is allocated to enclaves. This makes the servers even more secure and allows them to store and process the most sensitive data.
We use various Supermicro servers in our Cloud, including those of the Twin series.
To a certain extent, these powerful and secure servers form the backbone of our cloud infrastructure. We offer our clients cloud solutions with different configurations, some of them based on Supermicro servers.
To get a deeper understanding of how our solution works with Intel SGX and Supermicro, let’s see an example where G-Core Labs Cloud is used with Managed Kubernetes. In this case, two configurations can be implemented.
Collaboration with Supermicro and Intel helps us provide top-notch cloud services to our customers, making our Cloud fast, productive, and secure.
