Why Bare Metal Server?
Being a business owner, it is imperative to host a website in the Internet to establish a brand presence. More so if you are operating a tech firm.
A fast growing website or a web application needs considerable resources. One that quickly outgrows a Shared Hosting platform. A VPS/Cloud may be cheap to begin with, but there are issues with restrictive environment, exorbitant cloud hosting bills and consultation costs as well as hidden costs.
This is where a Dedicated Server solution steps in.
What is a Bare Metal / Dedicated Server?
A Dedicated Server is also known as Bare Metal Server. Simply a powerful computer that is dedicated to an individual or an organization. A Dedicated Server is generally built with enterprise-grade components (read: they seldom fail). It is deployed typically in a Data Center environment. A Bare Metal server maybe hosted and managed by a Managed Service Provider (MSP).
So how will this help my business?
The very obvious advantages of such a Bare Metal Server are:
- Guaranteed Resources – With no other tenants to share your resources with, Dedicated Servers are just there for your software/web application to run.
- Fixed Monthly Cost – Cloud Hosting may be cheaper to begin with, but the bills are quick to jump real high if you are not very careful. You are generally forced to dig deeper in bandwidth and CPU usage expenses. A Bare Metal server, in comparison, comes with a manageable fixed cost.
- Reliability – A Bare Metal server chosen from a decent provider (who is hosted in a proper Data Center) is reliable for at least 5 years.
- Powerful – Most of the Dedicated Servers generally have great value-for-money in their price-to-performance ratio.
- Secure – While you have total control the entire environment in the server, you can have absolute security.
- Issues Resolving – Cloud hosting can be cumbersome (uncertainty, lot of technicality and huge cost of mistake) before adoption and restrictive (vendor lock-in, environment lock-in) after adoption. Whereas with a Bare Metal Server you have complete freedom to deploy and run your software applications as per your exacting standards and requirements. You can even switch providers easily without much downtime.
- Total Control and Flexibility – You can have great control over the type of processes that are running at any time in your server. You can also choose to migrate to a new server if your requirements expand.
- Easy to Upgrade - If you have requirement constraints down the line, it is very cost-effective to upgrade your specification. Most Bare Metal Server providers would be glad to assist you (and provide you with a sweet offer) if you are going to upgrade your server.
- Almost No Consultation Cost – This is especially important for your bottom line as Cloud Hosting may be cheap, but could require a cloud provider partner to give you exact solution (incurring high consultation charges). Bare Metal Servers generally have only System Administrator doing his work quietly.
