    From the beginning, the team at Vultr has focused on making all aspects of hosting infrastructure management easier for everyone. Today we are excited to bring the simplicity of the Vultr platform to an old hosting industry stalwart - dedicated servers - by introducing the brand new Vultr Bare Metal product line!

    Powered by Vultr's cloud orchestration, you can now easily deploy single-tenant physical dedicated servers with zero virtualization layer. We’ve also added an array of cloud features typically only available for standard compute, such as hourly billing, fast api-driven deployment, and availability in multiple geographic regions.

    Direct Hardware Access
    Vultr Bare Metal provides direct access to the full power of the underlying physical hardware without a virtualization layer. On our platform, you'll be in the driver's seat of a real, physical server, with the convenience and simplicity of Vultr automation. Bare metal servers are also single-tenant only which means that only you will have full access to the resources of your server.

    Worldwide Deployment
    Deploy bare metal hardware around the world in 10 minutes or less using our point-and-click control panel. We are first introducing bare metal in Singapore and more locations will be rolled out in the coming weeks.

    Flexible Resource Management
    Easily scale and customize your bare metal environment via our user-friendly customer portal or by using our flexible API. In addition, all bare metal plans include the same no long term contract terms and hourly billing you’ve come to expect from our standard compute offerings.

    All Standard Operating Systems
    The complete Vultr operating system library has been updated to support bare metal servers. This includes all our versions of Linux, Windows, and BSD with full root/administrator access. Seamlessly switch between virtual and bare metal hardware without having to compromise!

    Bare metal adds the proven performance and security of the Vultr platform. Read more about bare metal servers on our product page and deploy a bare metal server today!

    Wow didn't expect to hear this news. Amazon AWS EC2 has similar announcement here. Bare metal seems to be in these days so going full circle from dedicated bare metal, to vps, to cloud and now back to bare metal and hybrid mixed cloud/bare metal environments :)

    Interesting choice to start with roll out in Singapore of all places ! Would of though New Jersey/New York would be first up on deployed releases.

    $300 per month is a lot but the hourly billing is what makes this really interesting. Rent it for a day, do your stuff and shut it down. Good biz decision from Vultr if you ask me.

    They will add Atom Processors.... So it will probably be cheaper

    I'll wait for their pricing on them but having in mind something like Scaleway, they are going to have to work hard on their pricing. I think Scaleway is running Atom Avoton's on some of their bare metal machines packages.

    I was reading the other day how packet.net can't wait for aws to validate their 'bare' proposal.
    Why We Can’t Wait for AWS to Announce Bare Metal

    I've not tested packet; but quite tempted to, as the 'scaling' up is too extreme. A type0 to type 1 step in monthly is huge! Admittedly you also get huge bump in hardware. If the type0 had 2 ssd then I'd go for it tbh. Darn near perfect container host.

    So I set to finding an alternative, Scaleway is one. Also pushing arm baremetal, 4cores 2gb/50gb disk for <3 euro a month... None are as straightforward as a vps of the linode/do/vultr stack, but then it's a little more complex to get baremetal + attached disk I guess. I was looking to attach volumes to make raid, tbh I think I'd run a few more given the cost and anything volatile ship out to amazon/block storage. Why make life too difficult ;)

    Will be keen to see vultrs pricing. TBH I didn't think $300 was too bad. It's less than packet for example. It's more than vps, but not much more. I still have a $200 dollar linode that gets noisy neighbours. by rights I should of moved it off ages ago... but I'll pay a bit more for convenience.

    I'm actually tempted once they breakout of singapore.
