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.
