Quantic Dynamics managed bare metal cloud provide the raw horsepower you demand for your processor-intensive and disk I/O-intensive workloads. These servers come with the most complete package of standard features and services. You can customize the hardware resources in your bare metal cloud and hardware can be modified anytime you want.
Configure your bare metal server with cutting-edge Intel server-grade processors. Outfit your 1U, 2U, or 4U bare metal server with up to four CPUs to maximize your processing power.
Whether you’ve got a need for SSD speed or requirements for massive local disk volume, you have the option to add and upgrade the hard drives in your bare metal server.
SATA Hard Drives
SATA II hard drives include a 3.0Gb/s interface with 8MB of cache and rotation speed of 7,200RPMs, and use NCQ for enhanced performance. SATA III drives include a 6.0Gb/s interface with 64MB of cache. SATA drives are best suited for web, mail, or high-capacity storage servers.
SA-SCSI Hard Drives
SA-SCSI hard drives include a 3.0Gb/s interface with 16MB of cache and rotation speed of 10,000 or 15,000RPMs
Solid State Drives
Choose server-class solid state drives (SSDs) for exceptional read/write performance and low latency. SSDs provide reliable and secure enterprise-class storage ideal for high-performance and data-intensive applications.
Hardware RAID Controller
Hardware RAID controllers provide the ability to create redundant drive arrays, providing protection against a possible drive failure. All RAID controllers are installed with a battery backup unit and with write caching enabled.
Add up to 3TB of RAM capacity during initial deployment or at any time during the life of your server. The more RAM you add to your server; the better per-GB price you pay.
Order up to 20TB of public outbound bandwidth to bring your bandwidth costs down to less than $0.075/GB. 500GB bandwidth included with monthly bare metal servers. Get the fastest, most reliable bandwidth in your region, and pay for what you need.
Your bare metal server comes with 100Mbps public and private network uplinks, and you have the flexibility to upgrade or downgrade that connection based on your workloads.
Redundant Power Supplies
Your critical systems require utmost redundancy. Add an additional safeguard to protect your high-value servers from service interruption in the event of a power supply failure.
Intel® Trusted Execution Technology
Add an additional layer of security with Intel® TXT, and build a solid foundation for a secure infrastructure.
Additional Server Options
In addition to standard hardware configuration options, we offer a several premium server options on bare metal servers for your most demanding workloads. Supercharge your compute-intensive application with GPUs, maximize your storage volume with more than a dozen hard drives, or cut down on inter-server latency by provisioning your servers in the same physical rack. You want it; we’ve got it.
General Purpose GPU (for High Performance Computing)
Amp up the performance on your compute-intensive applications with high performance computing bare metal server featuring NVIDIA Tesla Graphics Processing Units (GPUs). GPUs work in conjunction with your server’s CPUs to accelerate data processing and deliver unparalleled results, whether you are data mining, performing numerical and seismic analysis, or processing and rendering 3D video.
Mass Storage Servers
You’ve got tons of data, and you need space. Mass storage servers accommodate up to 36 internal hard drives and can be provisioned with your choice of operating system or as a turnkey NAS + SAN storage solution with OS NEXUS Quantastor Software.
Physically locate multiple servers in the same physical rack. Data transfer between servers in a dedicated rack environment is almost instantaneous, so you can minimize your inter-server network latency.
IBM POWER8 Servers
Combat your big data needs and manage your data-intensive workloads with IBM POWER8 bare metal servers. Built on IBM OpenPOWER architecture, these servers combine high-performance, storage and I/O to focus on increasing volumes of data while maintaining system speed. Because POWER8 bare metal servers are based on OpenPOWER, it makes it easy to take the leap to a Linux-based hosted environment. Provisioned with Ubuntu 14.04, you can work in a familiar environment with all the tools that Canonical makes available for more flexibility, automation, and configuration options.
