Bare-metal cloud is a public cloud service in which physical dedicated servers can be rented to customers. It offers flexibility, scalability and efficiency and is a substitute for virtualised cloud services. The overhead associated with virtualization is eliminated in the case of bare-metal cloud although they are delivered in a cloud-like service model. Bare-metal cloud brings in the best of both worlds, elasticity of public cloud combined with the predictability and security of on-premises infrastructure.
The demand for bare metal cloud arose due to the persistent demand for high-performance workloads on traditional public clouds. The server in bare metal cloud is used by a single tenant without any virtualization leading to superior performance and efficiency. The bare-metal replaces the virtualization of the cloud with one single dedicated server to reduce the overhead costs.
The bare- metal cloud environment can be modified depending upon workloads and requirement. It is being used for big data applications and high transaction workloads for which latency is unwanted.
According to Infoholic Research, the Worldwide Bare Metal Cloud Market will grow at a CAGR of 43.2% during the period 2016–2022 to aggregate $9,150.3 million by 2022.
Persistent need for high performance computing, need for reliable load balancing of latency sensitive and data intensive operations, emergence of fabric virtualization are few factors triggering market growth.
