Customize the hardware resources in your monthly bare metal servers. Hourly bare metal servers are built on fixed, pre-configured hardware to enable faster provisioning times, so hardware on hourly bare metal servers cannot be modified. Please note: Some server models do not support all hardware upgrades.
In addition to standard hardware configuration options, we offer a several premium server options on monthly 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.
All bare metal servers come with a comprehensive set of features and services. With these features included at no additional cost, you can accelerate deployment and optimize your total cost of operations.
