How does Bare Metal Cloud Compare to other Cloud Services?

Providing a dedicated platform with a cloud-like flexibility, Bare Metal Cloud has a unique advantage over other infrastructure solutions. You get the security and control of a dedicated platform with a cloud-like scaling potential. Its automation features allow for a quick infrastructure setup, while the underlying hardware ensures security, control, and customization potential.

In addition to this, the hourly billing model gives you maximum flexibility in terms of resource use. You can deploy or remove servers as you need them and you will pay for active services only. This lets you scale as your needs grow, ensure optimum performance at peak times, and optimize your IT budget without having to invest in additional hardware.

If your workload is more predictable, you can leverage the monthly reservation option to take advantage of significant cost-reductions.
