BARE METAL

Get flexibility and security for your most demanding workloads when you deploy dedicated and scalable physical servers alongside virtual instances.

Try our public cloud on for size with a no-commitment free trial.

Deploy high-performance
compute on your terms

Fully integrated into Lumen Cloud, Bare Metal servers offer pay-as-you-go flexibility and host a wide range of apps from a unified interface. They’re ideal for compute-intensive applications like databases, analytics jobs, grid computing and workloads requiring consistent performance.

Benefits

Consistent performance

Consistent 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.

Fast deployment

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 resulting in no organizational downtime.

Hourly billing

Hourly billing

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.
