Today's clouds have some limitations. Shared hardware and networking add architectural complexity… "Noisy neighbors" make it hard to predictably scale…
This often leaves you with a choice to make. Will you over provision cloud resources to compensate for unpredictability, and pay more than you should? Or will you move to a dedicated environment that's simple to architect, but lacks elasticity and flexible "pay as you go" pricing? Neither choice is ideal.
In late July 2014, we're introducing OnMetal™ Cloud Servers. They're single-tenant, bare-metal systems that you can…
You'll get the simplicity and performance of colocation, the high availability of single-tenant servers, and the agility of the cloud—all in one place.
Stop overspending on infrastructure to compensate for multi-tenant performance limitations.
Get the compute and I/O power of single-tenant, bare-metal servers.
Provision and manage OnMetal Cloud Servers as easily as multi-tenant Cloud Servers.
Not all performance-hungry workloads are the same. Some demand huge amounts of RAM. Some require more processor cores than memory. Some need lots of fast storage, while others need little or none. Don't worry—we've got you covered with a range of configuration flavors optimized for different workloads, including automated deployment for a variety of popular Linux distributions.
Managing cloud infrastructure can be challenging and time consuming. With managed cloud, we handle the complexity for you. Whether we run your cloud operations for you, or just help whenever you need us—we make the cloud simple.
We’ve all been trained to think of the cloud as generic virtual machines on demand. VMs have had their decade. The future ‘Cloud’ will be built with containers deployed across bare-metal servers provisioned via API. We believe Rackspace’s OnMetal service is the future of Infrastructure as a Service.
