On-Demand Provisioning

Choose a hardware configuration, data center location, and operating system, and your server will be online in 20-30 minutes.


Hourly Billing

Burst onto bare metal and pay only for what you use. With hourly billing and pay-as-you-go bandwidth, you never pay for excess capacity.


Bare Metal Performance

With direct access to your server’s physical resources, you don’t pay a virtualization tax or compete for shared resources.
