Cherry Servers has officially launched a cloud platform based on bare metal machines that is cost-effective, un-opinionated and simple to use. With specialized infrastructure and hardware level control, even the most demanding workloads can be handled at ease.
"After 2 and a half years of hard work and development, I can proudly say that we have finally launched our Bare Metal Cloud," says Art?ras Lazejevas, CEO of Cherry Servers. "Before starting to pursue a new venture, we always ask ourselves if there's a strong business case behind it. As of Bare Metal Cloud, we found out that there are many customers who need to have cloud-like elasticity on bare metal machines, but want to avoid vendor lock-in that is so prevalent among hyperscale providers. Our Bare Metal Cloud has no virtualization layer that results in stable workloads with no noisy neighbors. With specialized infrastructure and hardware level control, our customers get raw compute power that allows their workloads to be run more efficiently and for a lower price."
This is all good news for DevOps engineers who want to increase operational efficiency, reduce IT infrastructure costs and have hardware level control over a specialized cloud infrastructure.
"For more than a decade, our clients have been satisfied with our dedicated servers. However, as we have been attending local IT meetups in Europe, we realized that although hyperscale cloud providers have dominated the market for the last decade, there are many engineers who do not want nor need to get locked-in their ecosystem of managed services," says Marius Žalinauskas, DevOps Lead of Cherry Servers. He also adds, "We have developed Bare Metal Cloud for people who are not happy with limitations. They know what they are doing and are eager to do it themselves."
Cherry Servers now offers cost-effective Bare Metal Cloud services with hourly billing and automation capabilities, like RESTful API, Ansible and Terraform modules. With specialized infrastructure and hardware level control, clients can handle even the most demanding workloads at ease.
