Announcing our new Hourly Bare Metal Servers!


We are thrilled to announce the availability of hourly dedicated server instances, powered by our enterprise Openstack cloud hosting platform. Starting at just $0.29 per hour, these dedicated server instances are setup on the same cloud platform as our cloud instances. Tldr; it’s cloud, but the VM takes up the entire server. It operates identical to a cloud instance, except the storage is on the local drives, instead of distributed. The customer can still attach additional volumes, use load balancers, backups, templates, and more, with this new service.

Customers can deploy these by logging into Motion, clicking Deploy, selecting Cloud, and then choosing the “Dedicated Server” option under the “Deploy Cloud Server into:” section of the deployment form. Please note that if the customer chooses CentOS 6, Debian 7, or Ubuntu 12, it will take up to 45 minutes to install. If they choose any other OS, it should take the normal deployment time (2-3 minutes).

The following dedicated servers can be deployed:
