Cherry Servers is one of the leading hosting companies in Europe since 2001. As IT market grows and changes constantly, demand for new services and infrastructure development is crucial.
“After 2 and a half years of hard work and development, I can proudly say that we have finally launched our Bare Metal Cloud”, – says Artūras Lazejevas, CEO of Cherry Servers. “Before starting to pursue a new venture, we always ask ourselves if there’s a strong business case behind it. As of Bare Metal Cloud we found out that there are many customers who need to have cloud-like elasticity on bare metal machines, but want to avoid vendor lock-in that is so prevalent among hyperscale providers. We remove the redundant virtualization layer, while adding security and decreasing complexity of the infrastructure, which results in greater performance. With specialized infrastructure and hardware level control our customers get raw compute power that allows their workloads to be run more efficiently and for a lower price.”
This is all good news for DevOps engineers who want to increase operational efficiency, reduce IT infrastructure costs and have hardware level control over a specialized cloud infrastructure.
“For more than a decade our clients have been satisfied with our dedicated servers. However, as we have been attending local IT meetups in Europe, we realized that although hyperscale cloud providers have dominated the market for the last decade, there are many engineers who do not want nor need to get locked-in their ecosystem of managed services,” – says Marius Žalinauskas, DevOps Lead of Cherry Servers. He also adds: „We have developed Bare Metal Cloud for people who are not happy with limitations. They know what they are doing and are eager to do it themselves.”
Cherry Servers now offers cost-effective Bare Metal Cloud services with hourly billing and automation capabilities, like RESTful API, Ansible and Terraform modules. With specialized infrastructure and hardware level control clients can handle even the most demanding workloads at ease.
