Not all applications make sense in cloud, which is why it is nice to have access to bare metal solutions as well as cloud based solutions. We achieve operational efficiency by keeping our 24hr / 365 day workloads and compute needs on bare metal

We had a requirement to provision a new server and the time allotted to carry out this activity was very limited. We were able to provision an IBM Cloud bare metal server and configure it in less than a day. Since the cloud provides the latest generation of processors and storage, the performance of this server was much better than expected.

Our database reads and writes, along with search indexing, are the most compute-intensive workloads in our stack. However, having SSDs and a significant amount of memory has reduced these tasks and our application response times to record lows. In fact, we could throw even more at these servers as they are currently underutilized.

Yes, it's definitely I felt that it's useful for us and its efficiency is very high. we use this server in every project and we are recommended to our all clients to use this if they have a big or complex project or business logic then. It gives us a high-security level.

You can flexibly change the configuration such as memory capacity, disk capacity, and improvement of disk performance according to the load of the system. For example, when the disk capacity was insufficient, the performance and capacity could be flexibly selected, and it could be mounted and used immediately.

I used IBM Cloud Metal servers for 12 years (from the times it was Softlayer). I used it for intensive applications and games with tens of thousands and sometimes hundreds of thousands of users online. I use Microsoft Windows and MSSQL database server with large databases. So far IBM Cloud Metal Servers had proven to provide robust solution.

We're making an AFTM/ACDM (Air Traffic Flow Management/Airport Collaborative Decision Making) system based on IoT and real data processing. We process aircraft data in milliseconds resolution, that about 500 aircraft per second with up to 50 parameters per aircraft. The Bare Metal we use is the benchmark how far our system can be pushed to process air traffic in a real-time. It became the minimum specs for our system.

IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers have allowed us to increase workload efficiency as the servers provided by them are highly optimized. Sometime back we moved one of our servers to the cloud bare metal server. When the server was hosted in our physical infrastructure, some of our end of day processing schedules would take around 25-30 minutes, whereas in the IBM cloud, the time for these processing reduced to 10 minutes or lesser.

We run our build server on one of the [IBM Cloud] Bare Metal Servers. Often, we would have several builds happen concurrently on a daily basis. In the past, when we [had] 2 or 3 large builds running, other applications on the same server would slow down, and in extreme cases, stop responding. After we switched, we can run up to 7 or 8 concurrent builds without experiencing any significant impact.

The machines performed quite well while working until they didn't [in my experience].

While base servers start at very high performance, offloading application workloads into IBM Cloud would be beneficial. Keeping in mind the cost of [computing] is greater than other vendors. The benefit of offloading workload in the IBM Cloud should be calculated based on its dependency on other network of specialty driven capability of IBM Cloud.

Compute performance does not have benefit over other compute offerings based on price alone.

Single-inhabitant equipment choice, bare metal workers are the top decision for security, protection, and worldwide registering power. Organizations with a requirement for insignificant dormancy postponements and high unwavering quality regularly go to an uncovered metal worker arrangement, with a custom or prepackaged setup, for superior, information escalated applications.

A virtual worker is a few layers of programming, including the hypervisor and virtual worker working framework, running on a bare-metal worker. Virtual workers are transient, public, devoted, profoundly adaptable, and meet a scope of vigorous framework requests with security, straightforwardness, adaptability, and cost-saving adaptability. These workers are important for the establishment of the public distributed computing Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) stack.

Data intensive applications run very well. These machines a "built" for this kind of load. Word of advice, don't skimp on the network cards, nor the dual-bonding, in the event of streaming, as the 1GB tends to be not enough to handle what the rest of a high-performant box can load.

I primarily used bare metal servers to run message boards at the time. I feel like the traffic was too much load for one server and the lack of load balancing made me fail a lot with my experience.

We run Elasticsearch using these machines, and it performs great. We have zero complaints with the performance of the machines in regard to being able to handle large loads of client and end-user data. The security of the IBM Cloud allows us to enhance our datasets with the mindfulness of knowing that our data is secure.

We run Machine Learning on IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers. It’s a perfect choice for intensive applications. The hardware is very powerful and can save a lot of time running this tasks in Cloud. We store a lot of data for run our machine learning and servers are adapted to store good amount of data.

Sometimes our products need to load a lot of data, sometimes daily, sometimes monthly, and with that data, we need to perform many calculations, over and over. So far we have no complaints about it. We build our Bare Metal Server with much RAM and we believe that it has the power to perform what we need.

We started our journey on this service looking for a professional web hosting service. As time passed, we used one server to host a Kaltura Open server, which transcoded and served video files. And it worked perfectly. The performance in the servers in general was always great.

Other server that had intensive usage was a Database server, that served more than 20 different databases for several websites and it worked perfect, even on heavy load times.

Literally Excellent. IBM Cloud Bare Metal Servers are no match for service providers and no other options can compete with them. Our experience was very good. For the price, we were able to make remarkable achievements in processing our medical research.

As our operation is a single company with multiple websites, we do not really have Big Data applications. Our databases rarely exceed 6-10 million records for any particular table. We do not use media and/or streaming applications.
