Google Cloud broaden Confidential Computing portfolio

To provide encrypted services where users can be confident that their data is not being exposed to cloud providers or their own insiders, Google Cloud has expanded its confidential virtual machines (VMs) portfolio.  

While it is being processed, by keeping data encrypted in memory, and elsewhere outside the CPU, confidential computing makes this future possible. 

"We're also making Confidential VMs generally available. This capability will be available to all Google Cloud customers in the coming weeks and will include new features we've added during beta," Sunil Potti, General Manager/VP of Engineering, Cloud Security said in a blog post.

Raghu Nambiar, corporate vice president, Data Center Ecosystem, AMD said: "with AMD EPYC processors and Google Cloud's Confidential Computing portfolio we are helping to keep customers' data secure so they can feel confident that they can easily move their applications to the cloud".

Google has also said, “To protect the memory of workloads in  Google Compute Engine, it provides an easy-to-use option for both lift-and-shift and newly created workloads.”
