Bare Metal

Physical servers with the flexibility and control of virtual machines.

The Best of Both Worlds

Bare Metal servers are fully integrated into CenturyLink Cloud, allowing you to create and manage physical servers alongside virtual instances. Provision Bare Metal on and off as needed with pay-as-you go flexibility, and host a wide range of apps from a unified interface. Ideal for compute-intensive applications like databases, analytics jobs, grid computing, and other workloads requiring consistent performance.

Bare Metal Servers are available in multiple configuration options.

Konsistente Performance

Compute and storage is isolated to ensure a high level of performance for compute-intensive workloads or “batch” jobs needing bursts of compute power for a short time.

Bare Metal Servers deploy quickly.

Fast Deployment

In traditional data center or colocation environments, the provisioning timeline is measured in days or weeks. Bare Metal servers are available in an hour or less for no organizational downtime.

Bare Metal servers are billed hourly.

Stundengenaue Abrechnung

You are billed hourly for the life of the server, so you only pay for what you use. Spin up machines when you need them and de-provision when you're done.

Bare Metal Server Features

Zahlreiche Konfigurationsoptionen
  • Select from a variety of configuration options designed to meet different compute requirements.
  • Popular OSs available:
    • Windows Server, Standard and Datacenter Editions
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux
    • CentOS
    • Ubuntu
Security and Connectivity
  • Provision servers with user-defined firewall polices.
  • Fully encrypted local storage isolates and protects data.
  • Use Cloud Network Services – our secure, high-performance transit network – to connect Bare Metal servers with other infrastructure deployments to create hybrid environments.
Integriertes Management
  • Configure, run, and manage Bare Metal servers through the Control Portal.
  • Leverage CenturyLink Cloud’s REST API to create or decommission physical servers and manage power operations.
  • Deploy physical and virtual servers side-by-side in the same Group and VLAN; this dramatically simplifies administration of hybrid solutions.


Bare Metal for Big Data, Hadoop and Analytics
Big Data & Analytics

Bare Metal Servers are perfect for big data workloads. Customize, provision, and manage physical machines fast with on-demand flexibility via the Control Portal or API calls. Combine the compute power needed for data mining and analytics.

Use containers (like Docker) on Bare Metal.
Containers on Bare Metal

Give developers an isolated environment with all the benefits of VMs. Use containers (like Docker) to house micro service architectures. Scale apps running in containers deployed on Bare Metal and provision through API. Combine physical servers with cloud and gain operational advantage through a unified platform to operate infrastructure faster.

Bare Metal is ideal for enterprise applications that aren't well-suited for virtualization.
Alternatives to Virtualization

Many enterprise apps running on-premises or in traditional hosting environments are not well-suited to virtualization. For example: apps with licensing restrictions, or that carry compute-intensive workloads, such as data analytics, caching and indexing. Such apps are ideal for Bare Metal, where you get the benefits of single-tenancy at significant cost saving.

Applications and Databases may be ideal for Bare Metal.
Anwendungs- und Datenbank-Server

Customize a hybrid cloud solution through unified management of resources. Combine Bare Metal Servers with elastic Cloud Servers to manage and scale three-tier applications. Web tiers get the agility and elasticity of virtual environments, while application and database tiers get performance and isolation.

Ziehen Sie Bare Metal Server in Betracht, wenn ...

  • Anwendungen standortextern laufen müssen, aber ihre Architektur nicht ohne Weiteres in virtualisierten Umgebungen unterstützt wird
  • Compliance- und sicherheitssensible Anwendungen, die eine physische Isolation der Daten erfordern, ausgeführt werden
  • riesige Datenverarbeitungsmengen für kurze Zeitspannen benötigt werden (ein bekanntes Szenario im Grid-Computing im Finanzdienstleistungssektor oder in der Öl- und Gasbranche)
  • von einer Hosting- oder Colocation-Umgebung zu einer On-Demand Cloud-Infrastruktur übergegangen wird
