What is Cloud Bare Metal?
The bare-metal environment where you are able to run your own private cloud. You can choose to run Linux or Windows right on top of the server or run on any Hypervisor technology like VMWare, XEN, KVM and more.
Private Cloud gives you the maximum flexibility possible. You can also connect the servers to your local data center and establish a hybrid cloud setup using private fiber connectivity or through VPN.
At ReadySpace, we offer the flexibility and design consultation that you need to run a successful Bare Metal for your application. The servers can be mixed and matched depending your business demand. These servers can run on Intel, AMD or IBM Power processors.
How Bare Metal Servers Work?Bare metal servers are also known as single-tenant physical servers or dedicated servers. On a bare metal server, the operating system is installed directly onto the server, eliminating layers and delivering better performance.
A business can run dedicated servers in its own data center or a colocation center, or rent them on an hourly or monthly subscription basis from a managed service provider.
The Benefits of Bare Metal Servers
We can optimize a single-tenant physical server’s resources for your unique workloads so that it performs according to your requirements.
Physically isolate your data, applications and other resources with a bare metal server for a higher level of privacy and security than a virtual server.
Avoid the noisy neighbor effect as you aren’t sharing server resources with other tenants as with a hypervisor server.
Why Provision Bare MetalHere are a few use-cases for bare metal (physical server) provisioning in cloud; there are doubtless many more interesting ones:
– High-performance computing clusters
– Computing tasks that require access to hardware devices which can’t be virtualized
– Database hosting (some databases run poorly in a hypervisor)
– Single tenant, dedicated hardware for performance, security, dependability and other regulatory requirements
– Or, rapidly deploying a cloud infrastructure
Are Bare Metal Servers the Right Fit?Despite their overwhelming popularity, bare metal servers are not the best choice for every type of business.
Companies in the financial, healthcare and retail industries opt for single-tenant, bare metal servers to meet stringent requirements for regulatory compliance, privacy and security. But businesses that don’t need the performance and security requirements of a dedicated environment are often a good fit for a fully managed, virtualized environment.
