Bare-Metal Servers

Customer chosen server, storage and network configurations fully managed and accessible by the customer are one of CSL’s cloud offerings. As the term implies, our bare-metal servers solution, the customer is given access to the components via Out-of-band methods independent from any operating system remote access methods.

Typical use-cases for bare-metal cloud offerings

  • Resource hungry applications requiring full/dedicated resource allocations
  • Legacy applications which do not support modern technologies such as virtualisation
  • Products with licensing restrictions
  • Specific hypervisor implementations not delivered through CSLs Shared or Private cloud offerings
  • Customers requiring full control including the underlying hardware level upwards

During on-boarding, CSL liaises with the customer’s IT personnel to establish the initial configuration in terms of out-of-band IP addressing, disk RAID configuration, vlans, access lists, VPNs and optionally an initial operating system installation. Once the customer is given access to the said platform, all access to CSL personnel is ceased.

Although pre-defined server configurations are being provided as a guideline CSL allows full flexibility on the configuration of the said bare-metal instances and does not impose any restrictions on aspects such as CPU types and hard disk types.

Bare-metal solutions are priced based on a one-time implementation charge and an on-going monthly fee. Other CSL services such as Managed services, Software licensing, DDoS mitigation and Shared cloud services can be coupled with this offering.
