Bare Metal Cloud

Move your workloads and applications off-premise and into a Bare Metal environment as a secure, scalable step on your cloud journey. Layer on managed services to stay focused on key objectives.

What is Bare Metal Cloud?

Bare Metal servers, also known as dedicated servers, are physical servers or hardware that is dedicated to a single tenant – which is why they are also referred to as single-tenancy environments. Bare metal clouds combine many servers to create a powerful, customizable compute solution for demanding workloads. Traditionally, bare metal clouds only provide the hardware, but Performive knows that most mid-sized businesses require more support and services from their IT partners. Rely on the Performive Devoted Support and Engineering Teams to manage access, security, network, firewall, switches, and more aspects of the infrastructure with managed services.

When do you need a managed server or managed cloud?

Your team may have the skillset in-house to manage, monitor, and optimize your servers. But do you have the time to do it – or is your time better spent on revenue-driving, needle-moving projects?

Much like hiring a landscaper to mow your grass at home, many mid-sized organizations find there are diminishing marginal returns in doing it all themselves. The Performive managed server option offers cost-benefits over adding this time-consuming, routine maintenance to your team’s priorities.

What is the difference between a managed server and an unmanaged server?

In a Performive unmanaged server, our team will set up the hardware, install the OS and a control panel, if ordered, before handing it over to the customer for self-service. If the customer orders a managed server, our team take on additional responsibilities in the environment including scripts, monitoring, security, and more. See the full list of managed server benefits.

Are Performive’s managed servers dedicated servers or cloud servers?

Bare metal servers are physically isolated dedicated servers. However, the Performive portfolio has always been centered in cloud management. Devoted Managed Support covers all Performive environments, dedicated and virtual. Lean on our knowledgeable design architects to make a recommendation, and our certified technicians will monitor, manage, and optimize it.
