I have confirmed the feature AESNI into the Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2665
“Intel® AES New Instructions (Intel® AES-NI) are a set of instructions that enable fast and secure data encryption and decryption. AES-NI are valuable for a wide range of cryptographic applications, for example: applications that perform bulk encryption/decryption, authentication, random number generation, and authenticated encryption.
Now, I am confirming with my upper level if the PCLMULQDQ feature is included with this Sandy Bridge.
According to VMware documentation if both features are supported it will be possible to use the latest EVC Baseline.
I will reply as soon as possible.
