Managed VMs and bare-metal servers in the cloud

Most of computing is happening in the cloud. But with most vendors you are left on your own after you spin up your first server. They offer little assistance or charge an exorbitant premium for support.

Starting at $0.032/hr

for raw infrastructure

We're different. We know that it takes more than just raw infrastructure to get the most out of a cloud—it takes expertise. That's why our Cloud Servers always include Fanatical Support®.

  • We help you get up and running at scale.
  • We include a team of Cloud Engineers to help architect and deploy your environment.
  • We'll even respond to monitoring alerts and run your day-to-day cloud operations, if you want us to.
  • You can call, email, or chat with us whenever you need assistance.

It's called Managed Cloud, and nobody does it better.

Top Features

Built for reliability

Cloud Servers reside in our world-class data centers, with hardware RAID 10 storage for virtual machines and no moving parts for bare-metal servers, ECC memory, and fully redundant networking and power all the way to the host.

Power of bare metal

Instantly provision bare-metal servers using the OpenStack API or the control panel to bring more consistency and predictability to your application performance.

Global regions

Access to multiple regions lets you deploy applications close to your users and introduce geographic redundancy. Regions include Northern Virginia, Dallas, Chicago (available upon request), London, Sydney, and Hong Kong. (OnMetal™ Cloud Servers are currently available only in Northern Virginia.)

Extreme networking

All hosts for our virtual machines, as well as all our bare-metal servers, receive redundant, dual, bonded 10Gbps network connections to fuel high-bandwidth applications. Virtual servers also have a blazing 10Gbps connectivity to Cloud Block Storage.

You can also view pricing for first generation and next generation standard Cloud Servers.

* Minimally shared with fair weighting. Allows burst when idle resources are available. In rare cases, resources may be throttled back under heavy host contention.

** Disk I/O is shared across the host.

*** Dedicated for your use, regardless of host contention.

1 The number of virtual CPUs assigned to your Cloud Server. A vCPU corresponds to a physical CPU thread.

2 The amount of disk space allocated to your Cloud Server's operating system. System disks are RAID 10-protected and are captured when you image a server.

3 The amount of additional disk space allocated for your application data. Data disks are RAID 10-protected and are NOT captured when you image a server.

4 The amount of aggregate outbound bandwidth across all attached network interfaces (PublicNet, ServiceNet, Cloud Networks). The maximum amount of outbound public Internet bandwidth is limited to 50% of the aggregate limit. Inbound traffic is not limited. Host networking is redundant and bandwidth is delivered over two separate bonded interfaces, each able to carry 50% of the aggregate limit. We recommend using multiple Layer 4 connections to maximize throughput.

Incoming & internal —No charge for incoming bandwidth, or for bandwidth within private networks (ServiceNet and Cloud Networks).

Custom image storage

$0.10/GB/mo

Images are compressed before they're stored. When you delete a cloud server, any images created from it persist until you delete them.

Get consistency with bare metal in the cloud

To run at scale, you used to have to make a choice: If you chose the elasticity and agility of cloud, you faced the inconsistencies of a muliti-tenant environment. If you chose the simplicity and performance of dedicated hardware, you had to give up elasticity.

Now, with instantly provisioned OnMetal Cloud Servers you can get best of both worlds. OnMetal Cloud Servers are bare-metal instances that are highly optimized for the key workloads of typical internet applications.

You can easily combine VMs with bare-metal servers in the cloud, based upon your application requirements. And if you need a highly customized configuration, you can connect Cloud Servers—virtual or bare metal—to your dedicated environment.

We’re spending a little less than we were before with our dedicated server. And by moving to the Cloud, we’re getting twice as much computing out of it.
