Bare Metal Servers


When a virtual server isn’t the right solution, Entity Data’s Bare Metal Servers fill the gap.

A Bare Metal Server is a physical server dedicated for use by a single tenant. The tenant can configure the server according to the business requirements. The opposite of a Bare Metal Server is a hypervisor node, in which multiple users share a nodes compute and storage resources.

Entity Data is a DELL infrastructure partner and all our Bare Metal Server solutions are ordered from DELL on a case by case basis to meet customer requirements.

Our team can work with you to plan, design and build a solution to meet any operational requirement. You can also decide on the level of management you need following provisioning with the option of managing the solution yourself, or full management by our team.

Why Entity Data

  • Wide range of choices of Operating System and hardware.

  • Ability to virtualise the hardware and run your own virtual machines.

  • Multiple Service Level Agreements depending on business requirements.

  • Avoid high upfront hardware costs with a simple monthly payment.

  • Advanced traffic statistics via Netflow.

  • Wide range of enterprise addons available (i.e. Firewall, VPN, Load Balancing, etc).

  • 24/7/365 Support by our team.

More Information

Despite the overwhelming popularity, Bare Metal Servers may not be the best choice for many businesses. Cloud solutions are becoming ever more popular and increasingly can deliver all the same capabilities as a Bare Metal Server, at a lower price point.

We recommend discussing your requirements with an Entity Data solutions engineer to determine if a Bare Metal Server is the best fit for your business.
