There are many different options available to businesses today looking for server hosting companies. Understanding the differences in the various options and how to choose the best server company will be critical to any company.
One term that may be less familiar to many non-IT professionals is the term “bare metal.” This is a server that an actual physical machine, rather than a cloud-based or virtual server, is considered a bare metal server. Think of the bare metal as translating to an actual physical entity.
Bare metal server hosting is designed to allow a customer to have a dedicated physical server. This allows the customer to completely control the server functioning, security, and performance without any impact on other users. This provides full control over the workload prioritization on the server as well as security and storage options.
Of course, from the bare metal server, it is also possible to set up cloud-based systems and programs. The use of bare metal server hosting provides complete freedom and flexibility, allowing for easy scalability for a growing business.
Finding a Hosting Company
Look for a server hosting company that offers a good range of programs and options for bare metal servers. Most companies will provide a range of different processor options, frequency ranges, memory capacity as well as storage on the server.
Prices for bare metal servers are typically charged on a monthly basis. The top hosting services will be very competitive on pricing and will also have the best reputation for redundancy and consistent uptime with their servers.
One important consideration for most businesses will be the physical location of the bare metal server. A top company will have multiple locations, allowing the business to choose the server location and configuration that is ideal for their business.
