Build Your Bare Metal Server to Spec

The process of choosing and configuring a bare metal server might seem intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be.

1Choose a processor that best meets your performance needs.

2Upgrade from a base config to fine tune the hardware to your workload.

3SoftLayer deploys your server as configured within 2 to 4 hours.

4Upgrade resources as needed, on demand, via our Web portal or API

If you have questions about configuring your bare metal server, chat with our team, and we’ll help guide you through the process of selecting a server and customizing it with hardware upgrades.


Transparent Hardware Pricing

Customize the hardware resources in your monthly bare metal servers. Hourly bare metal servers are built on fixed, pre-configured hardware to enable faster provisioning times, so hardware on hourly bare metal servers cannot be modified. Please note: Some server models do not support all hardware upgrades.


Processor

Configure your bare metal server with cutting-edge Intel server-grade processors. Outfit your 1U, 2U, or 4U bare metal server with up to four CPUs to maximize your processing power.
