Single tenant

Spread out and relax with 100% isolated bare metal that can be fully utilized by your workload without any virtualization overhead or noisy neighbors.

Modern hardware

Our Standard Gen3 lineup features the latest Intel, AMD, and Ampere configs that are curated for common workloads, pre-deployed globally, and ready to consume on-demand in minutes.

Workload optimized configs

Enjoy the benefits of full automation, but with hardware that is optimized for high-memory, storage-heavy, or GPU use cases. Available globally with a 12-month commitment.

Mellanox and Intel NICs

Our configs feature the latest NICs from Mellanox and Intel (in 2 x 10Gbps, 2 x 25Gbps or 4 x 25Gbps options) providing massive throughput as well as direct access to advanced features like DPDK & VPP.

SGX and SEV capable

Leverage Intel’s Software Guard Extensions (SGX) or AMD's Secure Encrypted Virtualization (SEV) to provide hardware-level security for sensitive workloads.
