As enterprises move more workloads to public cloud infrastructure, their requirements get more complex, and pretty quickly the one-size-fits-all standard cloud offerings do not meet the mark. Often for performance and security reasons, enterprises are choosing not to use virtualized cloud resources and instead are looking for bare-metal servers with the flexibility and agility of a cloud service. With a bare-metal service there is no hypervisor separating the guest OS from the CPU, significantly improving the performance of whatever is running on that guest. But bare-metal and virtualized resources are not an either or scenario; rather it’s about matching the right workload to the right infrastructure resources to meet business requirements.
In this webinar, our panel addresses these topics and more:
- Is my current cloud service meeting my requirements from a performance, security and cost standpoint?
- What are the typical use cases for bare-metal clouds?
- How do companies manage bare-metal and virtualized resources under the same umbrella?
