OnMetal Cloud Servers Powered by OpenStack

Bare Metal Made Better

OnMetal Cloud Servers solve the problems inherent in today’s shared tenant virtual machines: compromised speed and performance due to the hypervisor and other virtualization overhead and complexity. With OnMetal, you get bare-metal speeds, consistent performance and the scalability of the cloud in a single-tenant environment. Powered by OpenStack Ironic, OnMetal Cloud Servers use the same OpenStack Nova-backed APIs as the rest of the OpenStack Public Cloud.

Why OnMetal?

Bare Metal Speed

There’s nothing between your applications and the maximum performance these servers have to offer because there’s no hypervisor overhead.

Rackspace Office

Consistent Performance

As the single tenant, you enjoy the consistent performance of a dedicated server. No need to worry about the uncertainty associated with multi-tenant environments.

Rackers working

Instant-On

Provision OnMetal Cloud Servers instantly via API to save time, work more efficiently and increase responsiveness to demanding workloads.

Top Features

Private, Secure Networking

Securely connect Rackspace servers and devices within your environment via integration with Cloud Networks and RackConnect.

Improved Storage

RAID 1 mirrored boot devices are hot-swappable with 800GB standard storage so your servers boot faster, with more local storage and improved reliability and uptime. OnMetal v2 servers remain online, even if a storage device fails.

Global Availability

OnMetal Cloud Servers are available in multiple regions in the US and the UK to better support customers world-wide.

Hybrid Connectivity

Easily integrate OnMetal Cloud Servers with public and private clouds and dedicated servers using RackConnect.

Utility-Style Billing

Keep costs under control by paying for only what you use, down to the minute. True consumption-based pricing and billing.
