What is a bare metal server?
A bare metal server is a physical server that is intended for use for one client. This design ensures that you won’t have to sacrifice performance the way you would with a virtual server. Because virtual servers host multiple users, you can often experience poor service simply because the other customers on the virtual network have too high of a workload. This makes your environment’s speed unreliable and less user-friendly.
Benefits of Bare Metal Server Hosting
Bare metal servers offer several key advantages over virtual and shared server networks. With bare metal servers from GTHost, you will get these benefits:
Performance: Performance, overall, is faster and more reliable with bare metal server hosting versus virtual servers. Unlike virtual servers, your bare metal server is able to meet your environment’s demands much more effectively because it does not have other users weighing it down.
Latency Not Dependent on Workload/Traffic: When you opt for a cloud-based bare metal server, your latency does not change even when there is a high workload or high volume of traffic. This means your clients, customers and employees can use the servers without interruption to speed and quality even during the busiest times.
Potential Per-Workload Savings: Even though virtual cloud costs are coming down a bare metal server can still provide a better price per workload. This is especially useful for environments that experience an exceptionally high number of workloads.
Best of Virtual and Bare Metal Servers: With cloud-based bare metal servers specifically, you will get some of the best features of both server types. With this form of server, you will get the hardware you need to get better performance and isolation, and also the ease of use that comes with virtual servers.
Who Should Choose Bare Metal Server Hosting?
Bare metal servers can be an ideal choice for a wide range of environments, but they are best suited to environments with workloads that are affected by latency and need a great amount of power in processing. Typical site types, features, and environments that should use bare metal server hosting include those with: gaming and game design, large databases that store relational material, and sites with rendering.
Price of Bare Metal Server Hosting
Bare Metal Servers have a great deal of advantages over virtual servers, but affordability is not necessarily one of them – at least not at first glance. While a bare metal server will include significantly higher fees, it also makes up for those with its much higher degree of reliability and faster processing.
Consider this, while a bare metal server may cost you more in terms of fees and physical maintenance, it could be saving you from losing customers. With many online shoppers citing slow cart loading times as a primary reason for cart abandonment, you could easily be losing your savings in the form of lost revenue.
A recent study concluded that many users are only willing to wait 3 seconds or less for a cart to load before they move on to something else. When trying to get your site user-friendly and profitable, few things are going to contribute as much as site speed.
Additionally, bare metal servers can also contribute to your overall page loading time which is a factor in Google site ranking. By having a better site ranking, you have an improved chance of people finding you in more searches which further improves your revenue and can more than justify the cost of a more expensive server.
