We're continually making improvements to Edge Bare Metal services. Below, are our most recent enhancements—with links, where applicable, to articles on how to use the new or updated features.
Bare metal servers
You can provision a bare metal server in Lumen® Edge Service Manager with Rocky Linux version 8.6 as an option. You can choose from the CentOS 7.9, Rocky Linux 8.6, and Ubuntu 18.04 and 20.04 options.
You can build Edge Bare Metal servers faster. We reduced the average build time to a third of the original build time. This updated build process increases build stability as the network continues to grow.
Been awhile since you've signed in? Here are the additional changes we've made to Edge Bare Metal recently.
Bare metal server networks
You can now provision a network in the Catalog section of the Edge Service Manager. This combines additional functionality with a more modern look when provisioning bare metal networks.
You can now add multiple bare metal servers to a single network. This new functionality requires that you provision a network before you provision a bare metal server.
You can now purchase larger IP blocks for bare metal networks. You can add a /29 block for no additional cost. Other IP blocks are available on a per IP block usage fee. Pricing is available within the Edge Service Manager.
