Are Bare Metal Servers the Right Fit?
Despite their overwhelming popularity, bare metal servers are not the best choice for every type of business.
Companies in the financial, healthcare and retail industries opt for single-tenant, bare metal servers to meet stringent requirements for regulatory compliance, privacy and security. But businesses that don’t need the performance and security requirements of a dedicated environment are often a good fit for a fully managed, virtualized environment.
How Rackspace Can Help You With Your Bare Metal Server Needs
As a fully managed hosting provider, we have provided countless companies with bare metal servers, whether they’re using public, private or hybrid clouds. Our dedicated server customers include Abilene Christian University — a private college in Texas that needed to upgrade its legacy systems and optimize the performance of its IT infrastructure. We’ve also helped Kurtosys, a London-based financial technology software company, reliably provide its digital offerings in a private cloud.
We have worked with these companies, and numerous others, to understand their unique business needs and pain points — and to provide them with the best configuration of bare metal servers for their public, private and hybrid clouds.
