If you have questions about configuring your bare metal server, chat with our team, and we’ll help guide you through the process of selecting a server and customizing it with hardware upgrades..

Transparent Hardware Pricing

Customize the hardware resources in your monthly bare metal servers. Hourly bare metal servers are built on fixed, pre-configured hardware to enable faster provisioning times, so hardware on hourly bare metal servers cannot be modified. Please note: Some server models do not support all hardware upgrades.

cpu processing

Configure your bare metal server with cutting-edge Intel server-grade processors. Outfit your 1U or 2U bare metal server with up to four CPUs to maximize your processing power.

Local disk storage
Local Disk

Whether you’ve got a need for SSD speed or requirements for massive local disk volume, you have the option to add and upgrade the hard drives in your bare metal server.

SATA Hard Drives

SATA II hard drives include a 3.0Gb/s interface with 8MB of cache and rotation speed of 7,200RPMs, and use NCQ for enhanced performance. SATA III drives include a 6.0Gb/s interface with 64MB of cache. SATA drives are best suited for web, mail, or high-capacity storage servers.

SA-SCSI Hard Drives

SA-SCSI hard drives include a 3.0Gb/s interface with 16MB of cache and rotation speed of 10,000 or 15,000RPMs. SA-SCSI drives’ high-performance speed and reliability are best suited for game, database, streaming media, and mission-critical servers.

Solid State Drives

Choose server-class solid state drives (SSDs) for exceptional read/write performance and low latency. SSDs provide reliable and secure enterprise-class storage ideal for high-performance and data-intensive applications.

Hardware RAID Controller

Hardware RAID controllers provide the ability to create redundant drive arrays, providing protection against a possible drive failure. All RAID controllers are installed with a battery backup unit and with write caching enabled.

bare metals ram

Add up to 512GB of RAM capacity during initial deployment or at any time during the life of your server. The more RAM you add to your server, the better per-GB price you pay.

bare metals uplink

Order up to 10TB of public outbound bandwidth to bring your bandwidth costs down to less than $0.099/GB. 500GB bandwidth included with monthly bare metal servers. Get the fastest, most reliable bandwidth in your region, and pay for what you need.

bare metals uplink
Network Uplink

Your bare metal server comes with 100Mbps public and private network uplinks, and you have the flexibility to upgrade or downgrade that connection based on your workloads.

redundant power supplie
Redundant Power Supplies

Your critical systems require utmost redundancy. Add an additional safeguard to protect your high-value servers from service interruption in the event of a power supply failure.

cpu processing
Intel® Trusted Execution Technology

Add an additional layer of security with Intel® TXT, and build a solid foundation for a secure infrastructure. Available on specific bare metal servers, this technology ensures systems start up in a known good state.

Additional Server Options

In addition to standard hardware configuration options, we offer a several premium server options on monthly bare metal servers for your most demanding workloads. Supercharge your compute-intensive application with GPUs, maximize your storage volume with more than a dozen hard drives, or cut down on inter-server latency by provisioning your servers in the same physical rack. You want it; we’ve got it.

cpu processing
General Purpose GPU (for High Performance Computing)

Amp up the performance on your compute-intensive applications with high performance computing bare metal server featuring NVIDIA Tesla Graphics Processing Units (GPUs). GPUs work in conjunction with your server’s CPUs to accelerate data processing and deliver unparalleled results, whether you’re data mining, performing numerical and seismic analysis, or processing and rendering 3D video.

Local disk storage
Mass Storage Servers

You’ve got tons of data, and you need space. Mass storage servers accommodate up to 36 internal hard drives and can be provisioned with your choice of operating system or as a turnkey SAN storage solution with our NexSan Enterprise Storage Arrays.

Dedicated Rack

Physically locate multiple servers in the same physical rack. Data transfer between servers in a dedicated rack environment is almost instantaneous, so you can minimize your inter-server network latency.
