If your application uses one of these distros, you can take advantage of powerful OnMetal bare metal servers to run your web servers, caches, databases and many other workloads.

Multi-tenant clouds have limitations. Inconsistent performance, unpredictable behavior, and unscheduled maintenance windows make scaling hard. That's why so many successful, big Internet applications move back to colocation. Dedicated single-tenant environments deliver consistent and predictable performance and availability, but you lose elasticity and utility billing. Neither choice is ideal.

OnMetalâ„¢ Cloud Servers combine the consistent performance and economy of colocation with the elasticity of the cloud.
