Three Benefits of Bare Metal Dedicated Servers
High performing Intel® Xeon® processors can enable your workloads to run faster and more efficiently while lowering overall cost of ownership. Configure your server with up to four processors to deliver high performance for diverse workloads.
Choose from these processors:
- E5-2600 v3
- E5-4600 v3
- 7th Generation Intel Xeon Scalable Processor - Silver, Gold, Platinum
Add up to 3TB of DDR4 RAM during initial deployment, or increase memory capacity as your business grows. With next generation DDR4 memory support, your overall memory bandwidth increases and is optimized for your workloads. RAM options range from 32GB up to 3TB.

With Rackspace Server Virtualization, you get the agility and cost savings of a virtualization solution in a dedicated environment. Our trained engineers manage the virtualization layer and the underlying physical infrastructure for you, taking the complexity and hassle out of virtualization.
Choose from these virtualization options:
Hardware RAID controllers create redundant storage arrays to help protect against drive failures. RAID controllers include Flash-Based Write Cache (FBWC), designed to increase overall performance, especially in write-intensive application environments. In addition to 12GB/s SAS support, RAID controllers include onboard battery backup.
Choose from these RAID options:
- RAID 1
- RAID 1 + HS
- RAID 5
- RAID 5 + HS
- RAID 6
- RAID 6 + HS
- RAID 10
- RAID 10 + HS
Managed Backup is included with your server. It includes differential daily backups and full weekly backups, with two-week onsite retention. If you require more frequent backups or longer retention periods, we can design a backup solution that meets your business needs. Our backup engineers will work with you to design a backup protocol to reach your recovery time objective (RTO).
Our backup options include:
- Full backup
- Incremental backup
- Differential backup
To help ensure that your server remains online and performing at its best, your servers include Rackspace Monitoring. Powerful event processing generates thousands of pieces of data every second and executes alarm scripts as soon as there is a problem. Flexible notifications allow you to decide who should be notified.
Our suite of included and optional monitoring solutions includes:
- Infrastructure monitoring
- Operating system monitoring
- Network monitoring
- URL monitoring
- Application monitoring
Graphical Processing Units
Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) cards are used to accelerate analytical solutions, machine learning and deep learning, and engineering/modeling applications. GPUs are used in parallel with CPUs for processing and advanced computation capabilities which allow certain applications to run faster. The following GPUs are available for deployment in your Rackspace dedicated server:
- Nvidia Quadrop M5000
- Nvidia Quadro M6000
- Nvidia Tesla P4
- Nvidia Tesla M10
- Nvidia Tesla M60
- Nvidia Tesla P40
- Nvidia Tesla P100 (12GB and 16GB)
"Our infrastructure is stable, it’s always there and we don’t have to worry about losing 30 percent or 40 percent of our compute capacity because of spot price fluctuations.”
