Bare Metal as-a-Service (BMaaS) Data Storage Solutions

Bare Metal as-a-Service (BMaaS), Powered by Pure, delivers simple, hosted, on-demand, full-stack (network, storage, compute) deployment and support from a single vendor. All under one contract—all with Pure Storage embedded.

Infrastructure at the Speed of Software, Consumed as a Service

Don’t be forced to fit the cloud. Make the cloud fit your business. Support legacy applications; high-volume, data-driven environments; and hybrid/cloud-native/multicloud ecosystems with cloud-like ease and speed—on a single platform that’s simple to use, globally interconnected, highly secure, and fully hosted. And you only pay for what you use, when you use it.

A Single, Simple-to-Use Platform

This is a solution for customers who want to get out of their data centre, repatriate from a public cloud provider, or establish a fully hybrid cloud environment. Pure is the only storage company with a solution where disaggregated, shared storage is embedded into a full-stack bare metal offering.

A Flexible, Scalable BMaaS Infrastructure

Get as-a-service IT infrastructure in a single-tenanted, highly secure, cost-effective, and fully interconnected bare metal infrastructure, all at the speed of software–with Pure Storage embedded.

Different From Public Cloud Providers

The promise of cloud but on bare metal. Delivering improved performance and controllable costs. With full access and exclusive control of the hardware, you can use existing software licenses and allow for oversubscription of resources vs. VMs running on a shared, proprietary public cloud.

Fully Managed, as-a-Service Simplicity

Block, file, and object storage in a hosted as-a-Service offering. Our solution provides the data centre and racks, power and cooling, network and switching, and physical staffing. Support workloads such as logging and analytics, bare metal and virtual machines, and cloud-native containers paired with full-stack, cost-optimised, bare metal server and network hardware.

Empowers You to Reimagine Your Cloud Journey

From past (legacy on-premises applications), to present (high volume data-driven applications), and future (cloud native and next-gen applications) technology challenges.

What is Bare Metal as a Service (BMaaS)?

Bare Metal as-a-service or BMaaS is a service model in which a vendor deploys dedicated physical IT infrastructure or “bare metal” to the customer’s data centre with the same on-demand scalability, convenience, and agility of a cloud service.
Unlike an outsourced colocation data centre, BMaaS provides a full stack, hosted, on-demand solution.
The procurement of hardware, software, deployment, support, optimisation, and lifecycle management services are all handled by one vendor under one contract.

People also ask:

1. What Is a Bare Metal Server?

A bare metal server is a computer server that hosts one tenant, used by one customer and not shared between consumers—a single-tenant server.

2. BMaaS vs. IaaS: What’s the difference?

IaaS is a cloud computing model in which storage, compute, and networking resources are available on demand over the internet through an IaaS provider.

BMaaS can be considered a subset of IaaS that refers specifically to the practice of providing access to dedicated servers free of any installed operating systems or virtualisation ⁠infrastructure—bare metal. The customer may be provided access to the physical server hardware either remotely or on-premises.

Compared to the traditional cloud model, where multiple users (multi-tenancy) may reside on the same physical server within a cloud vendor’s data centre, the bare metal server only has one customer on the server (a single-tenant server).

Access is usually provisioned on-demand via a single contract or service level agreement (SLA).

3. What are the advantages of BMaaS?

The primary advantage of BMaaS is that you get direct access to system hardware. This supports applications that require access to system performance counters to run in a cloud environment.

Additionally, BMaaS gives you all the benefits of a traditional dedicated server:

  • Dedicated resources⁠—you don’t have to compete for resources with other tenants hosted on the same server
  • High performance and security⁠—eliminates the possibility you’ll be sharing a server with a malicious tenant
  • Control over your server’s configuration and software installations
  • On-demand provisioning of storage, compute, and networking resources
