DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class colocation, connectivity and managed services, announces the launch of DataBank METAL, a single-tenant bare metal offering. DataBank METAL can be deployed in 40+ data centres in 20+ metropolitan areas of DataBank’s industry-leading edge footprint.
A hosting option between traditional colocation and private cloud hosting, Bare Metal in a DataBank data centre offers a total infrastructure solution for organizations looking to balance flexibility, performance and cost while maintaining and expanding their presence at the edge. DataBank METAL provides automated orchestration of server deployments so you can quickly—without capital expenditure—extend your unique environments to the edge and closer to your employees, customers, and prospects. This means customers can use whatever operating environment, application, and management tool they have developed or adopted without having to conform to external standards or practices.
“DataBank METAL is an ideal solution for many organizations looking to achieve their edge vision and goals,” said Jeremy Pease, senior vice president of managed service operations. “DataBank’s colocation-ready data centres are strategically located across North America to deliver high-volume data to the edge. Additionally, our solution provides an orchestration layer as part of the bare metal platform. This gives our customers the freedom to manage their deployments without rules or burdens, delivering the solution how they see fit.”
DataBank METAL provides an industry-standard yet a fully customizable environment that enables organizations to develop, test, deploy, and support their workloads without signing up for additional services they may not need. Additionally, bare-metal servers allow organizations to lease server capacity in a continuous OpEx model, accelerating time-to-market and virtually eliminating capital expenditures.
“With its ability to deliver rapid implementations, reliable performance and scalability, and edge solutions, DataBank’s Bare Metal offers a best-of-all-worlds approach capable of delivering significant business value,” added Greg Shamieh, Senior Product Manager for DataBank.data,
