Bare Metal 

Take Advantage Of High-Performing Bare Metal 

What you’ll get

VEXXHOST can offer our users the option of deploying their private cloud on high-performing bare metal, delivering to them a fully dedicated and secure physical machine that can either live in our data centers or yours.

Optimal Security

Due to its physical and dedicated nature, the security provided by bare metal relieves users of any risks associated with environment neighbors.

  • Dedicated Physical Machine

    With bare metal, users are guaranteed their dedicated machine, meaning that neighbors are a thing of the past.

  • Highly Secure

    Due to the isolation of the dedicated machine, users also benefit from the added security, avoiding exposure of their data to others.

Centralized Management of Machines

Bare metal can act as an automation tool for the management of all your machines and even enables our users to access certain features that aren’t available in virtual machines, like having multiple levels of virtual machines.

  • Automation

    Bare metal provides users with a central way of housing and managing their various machines, including their virtual machines.

  • Added Features

    Users can take advantage of some of the features delivered by bare metal that aren’t possible with virtual machines, such as having one virtual machine on top of another.

Reduces Complexity & Increases Performance

Bare metal is notably more straightforward to configure than virtual machines. Besides, while the performance losses between bare metal and virtual machines aren’t always significant, they do exist for particular use cases like those of financial institutions.

  • Simple Set-Up

    Bare metal can provide a less complex set-up option in comparison to virtual machines.

  • Increased Performance

    Where use cases require it, bare metal can deliver a higher level of performance than virtual machines. In specific industries such as finance, these performance improvements can have a significant impact.

Customizable Traffic Management

High Availability

The provisioning of high availability is delivered at the database level through the region controller and can also be attributed to physical availability zones.

  • Highly Available

    Through the region controller, our users benefit from high availability, starting at the data center level.

  • Physical Availability Zones

    Users are able to create and assign physical availability zones to control critical availability areas better.
