Why use bare-metal servers when engaging in long-term Hosting?
Bare-metal is considered one of the favored solutions for long-term deployments. There are several significant contributing factors to use bare-metal over virtual machines.
A bare-metal platform is then the obvious choice.
There are no other tenants to compete with for the server's physical resources, so it is much easier to scale and combine your resources. Even though many service providers don't place a hard limit on virtual resources, there is always a soft limit.
Your organization's requirements are bound to evolve. The additional customization bare-metal servers offer means that bare-metal servers can cater to a broader range of workloads.
Bare-metal is an excellent starting point for a hybrid environment. It combines bare metal servers, Kubernetes, and remote services like storage, backup, and monitoring.
Industries with compliance guidelines can make use of bare-metal servers for increased security. The European GDPR requires companies to have the financial and personal data of end users stored in compliant infrastructure.
