The bare metal cloud without virtualisation

The full performance of dedicated hardware coupled with the fast and flexible provision and usage-based billing of the cloud. The PlusServer Hardware Cloud allows you to fully utilise the performance of the contained bare-metal server. We make this available to guarantee you performance and maximum compliance. A Hardware Cloud solution usually consists of whole racks. This provides you with a very large pool of resources and enough reserve capacity for peak loads or development projects.

The bare metal servers are API-based, so they can be controlled automatically. We charge for the precise hours you use the activated servers and therefore guarantee attractive terms for short-term workloads. We charge a small monthly fee for the basic setup and integration into the primary environment. This also covers the management of the Hardware Cloud. We ensure integration on the network side to make sure the Hardware Cloud integrates seamlessly into the primary hosting environment. The Hardware Cloud servers are neither pre-installed with an operating system, nor are they used for virtualisation.

This means we offer you the greatest amount of flexibility in using your server. So you have, for example, the option to use your own virtualisation platform or to work with containers (docker) instead. We are of course also happy to help you in developing a suitable installation. The Hardware Cloud is perfectly suited to handling peak loads, CPU-intensive applications within a short time or for building test, development and reference environments.

Individual Managed Hosting solutions with the Hardware Cloud

Hardware Cloud

The Hardware Cloud consists of a series of dedicated bare metal servers which are controlled via API so that resources can be used flexibly and automatically. It is integrated into the remaining hosting environment and can be supplemented with other products.

High Performance. High Value. Intel® Xeon® processors.

The PlusServer Hardware Cloud

  • Stable bare metal hardware

    We only use Hewlett Packard Enterprise brand servers in the Hardware Cloud to allow for the best performance and stability.
  • Rapid provision

    You can deploy and control servers from the Hardware Cloud yourself using APIs. You do not need to inform your sales representative or contact support. The servers also shut themselves down when they are no longer required.
  • Constant performance

    You use 100% bare metal performance and are not at all affected by other users in the same cloud architecture. The renunciation of a virtualisation layer also has a positive effect on performance.
  • High performance network

    Each cabinet has 10Gbps network connections and is connected to the high performance PlusServer backbone with up to 250 Gbit/s capacity.
  • Larger pool of resources

    You usually acquire the Hardware Cloud as a rack and pay a small basic fee for the integration and management of the platform. So you can always be sure that you will not reach your limits, even with very CPU-intensive applications.
  • Pay-per-Use

    You receive an accurate hourly bill for the active time you utilise when you activate a server from your resource pool. As you can turn off the server via APIs, you always keep a firm grip on the reins.
