You spoke, we listened — and now we’re excited to announce the upcoming launch of our next generation of OnMetal Cloud Servers: bare metal made better with the elasticity of the cloud and consistent performance of a dedicated environment.
We’re also expanding OnMetal territory, crossing the pond, from U.S. data centers into the United Kingdom.
Click here to be notified as soon as OnMetal v2 is available in the Rackspace Cloud Control Panel.
As many businesses have already discovered, OnMetal Cloud Servers solve the problems inherent in today’s multi-tenant virtual machines: inconsistent performance, noisy neighbors and the hypervisor tax. With OnMetal, you get bare-metal speeds and consistent performance in a single-tenant environment.
We launched OnMetal Cloud Servers in June 2014, and it’s been a hit ever since. Startup company Brigade Media, which seeks to leverage social technologies to increase civic activism, turned to OnMetal to power its ominchannel app, providing the performance of a dedicated environment, while maintaining the ability to scale up instantly when demand jumps.
We’re customers, too. Our own Cloud Metrics team moved its production system from virtual cloud machines to OnMetal and found a more reliable, and unexpectedly less expensive, system.
Our development team listened carefully to customer feedback on OnMetal v1, and the next generation of OnMetal, launching in February, delivers on what we’ve heard. offers the same lightning fast, secure performance plus new features based on that feedback, including:
- Instant-on: deploy in as fast as three minutes. No more waiting hours for a dedicated server.
- Performance: run on our fastest performing, OpenStack-powered servers.
- Dedicated benefits: single-tenant environment for more access, security and control.
- Secure and private networking: new in v2, integration with Cloud Networks and RackConnect v3.0 for superior hybrid cloud connectivity.
- Global reach: new in v2, OnMetal Cloud Servers will be available in multiple U.S. and U.K. data centers.
These features give businesses greater ability to grow topline revenue and to quickly respond to dynamic market demands. In particular, OnMetal v2 Cloud Servers will make a significant difference in driving results for any customer with workloads that are data-intensive, power-hungry, highly dependent on consistent performance, have a need for raw processing power or dynamic scaling demands.
