Several industry trends are causing the bare-metal services niche to grow quickly. Workloads are becoming larger and more resource-intensive thanks to the proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT) and data analytics and advances in artificial intelligence (AI). Enterprises continue to seek higher levels of security to meet increasingly stringent data protection regulations. And many customers want more control, greater access to innovative hardware, more performance and the ability to define all aspects of their operating environment — something that the major public cloud service providers (which rely on virtualization-based services) may not offer. Packet is one of the leading providers of bare metal cloud services, a market that experts predict will be worth USD 26.21 billion by 2025 (a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 38.4 percent).
Read on to see how, through 100 percent dynamic orchestration, Packet gives demanding users the control, performance and cost benefits of dedicated physical infrastructure, but with the automation experience of the cloud.
