Manage Baremetal Servers

Baremetal servers are physical servers that reside directly on the hardware without the virtualization layer. Baremetal servers are hosted on dedicated baremetal compute resources, deployed for a single user. Utilization of baremetal servers allows locating customer's servers on a single piece of hardware. Use of baremetal servers in the cloud makes hardware resource utilization more efficient. In this document, you can find information on how to manage baremetal servers.

    • Baremetal Compute resource group the server belongs to.
    • Login credentials
    • Owner
    • Estimated Price per hour. This sum does not take into consideration the free limits for resources set in the bucket. Therefore, the final price for the server might differ from the sum indicated here.

Delete Baremetal Server



To remove a baremetal server from the cloud:

  1. Go to your Control Panel > Cloud > Baremetal Servers menu.
