Bare Metal ServersSingle-tenant server with dedicated resources and flexible pay-as-you-go usage.
Dedicated to you
The resources on your machine are dedicated to you, and you alone. This ensures high-performance at all times, but you can add more resources if you need to by upgrading to a more powerful model.
Pay as you use
With a Bare Metal Server you can see and control usage for the current month, down to the minute with no upfront costs or contracts. Start, stop and pause your Bare Metal Server at any time, and with ongoing cost estimates you can see a summary of the total amount payable on the last day of the month.
Works in combination with virtual machines
If you already have a cluster of virtual machines it’s easy to link your Bare Metal Server to your VM and have them work together. Spin up a Bare Metal Server to take some of the heavy processing load away from your VM and shut down the server when you’re finished. Or store critical data on a Bare Metal Server and have frontend, load-balanced virtual machines split the processing load.
Fast performance with SSDs
Solid-state disks offer high performance speeds even over the heaviest of workloads. SSDs have higher input/output rates than hard-disk drives which means faster processing times for your server. Because SSDs don’t have moving parts they offer more stability than hard-disk drives.
Spin it up and take it back down when you’re done with it. With a Bare Metal Server you only pay for resources you use.
Spin up a server in eight minutes
Traditional dedicated servers can take hours to spin up, but a Bare Metal Server can be ready to use in under eight minutes.

What is the difference between a Bare Metal Server and a dedicated server?
With a Bare Metal Server you get all of the power and performance of a dedicated server but with a more flexible billing model. Dedicated Servers have to be bought in a monthly or yearly contract, but you can run a Bare Metal Server for as long as you like and only pay for what you use.
