Intel’s upcoming processor is providing  support for huge memory, more security enhancements, and extended performance tuning capabilities for cloud computing.

To support huge memory systems, the new platform is introducing 5-level paging in both hypervisor and VMs, which extends both the linear and physical address width for Intel's new memory technologies. For performance, Intel is delivering new instructions like AVX512 to accelerate AI computing. Meanwhile, features like Intel PT will empower VMs with advanced performance tuning capabilities, and can be used to enhance control flow integrity. For security, we are offering UMIP to prevent some sensitive instructions from user mode execution, as well as EPT-based SPP to allow fine-grained write-permission for VM introspection.

In this presentation, Yu will give an introduction to these fantastic features, their respective usage models, and current status.
