Rackspace Unveils OnMetal Cloud Servers

Rackspace US, Inc. has unveiled the next generation of OnMetal Cloud Servers powered by OpenStack bare metal, single-tenant servers that are API-provisioned in two minutes, providing near-instant scalability and elasticity. This latest version of OnMetal Cloud Servers delivers innovative connectivity between public cloud and dedicated hardware and enables unprecedented hybrid cloud performance. Both Microsoft and Linux workloads can now benefit from these next generation capabilities by capitalizing on the flexibility of public cloud with the performance and security of bare metal servers. OnMetal Cloud Servers are an ideal solution for customers looking to run workloads such as Cassandra, Docker, Spark and Windows that require intensive data processing, raw compute power and the ability to quickly scale and deploy. This offering gives customers bare metal speed, with the control, security and consistent performance comparable to dedicated hardware. OnMetal Cloud Servers help increase efficiencies at scale, allowing customers to reduce the cost and complexity of their IT operations by consolidating workloads from many virtual environments to a few bare metal servers. Rackspace customer Brigade, a political social networking app, has significantly increased its app's performance and reliability with OnMetal Cloud Servers. The Rackspace bare metal offering has helped Brigade avoid performance limitations common with virtualized systems and utilize the increased consistency of a single-tenant cloud environment. According to Brigade, the first generation of OnMetal improved Brigade's query times by 36.5x, from 7.3 seconds to 0.2 seconds. The next generation of OnMetal Cloud Servers benefits and new features include: private and secure networking; increased international availability; improved storage capabilities; and hardware and software upgrades. Next generation of OnMetal Cloud Servers will integrate with Cloud Networks and RackConnect (available in the second quarter of 2016) to provide enhanced levels of secure networking across all the Rackspace servers and devices within the customer's environment. Next generation OnMetal Cloud Servers are available internationally, with regional coverage across the US and UK, decreasing latency for customers around the globe. Next generation OnMetal Cloud Servers are faster, higher capacity and more reliable than the first generation. The bare metal servers feature improvements of 250% in write performance, 40% in read performance and include up to 800 GB of local boot drive storage capacity. Also, they feature RAID 1 mirrored storage with two hot-swappable disks to improve uptime and help to reduce the risk of lost data. Next generation OnMetal Cloud Servers are built on second generation Open Compute servers, featuring the latest Intel Xeon E5-2600 v3 processors. Additionally, the next generation of OnMetal Cloud Servers offers an improved selection of guest images, with support for Windows available in the second quarter of 2016.
