02.19.2023 – Cox Edge broke new ground as a leading disruptor in the world of edge and distributed cloud computing in 2021. Now the company is excited to announce its latest product launch— Bare Metal servers. These instant and custom dedicated servers, delivered in partnership with Hivelocity, will add to the already comprehensive list of products in the Cox Edge platform, giving companies and developers the full-stack “all in one” edge services they need to excel.  

Fast Control With Bare Metal 

By partnering with Hivelocity to introduce Bare Metal to the Cox Edge technology stack, the company can now deliver fast access to dedicated servers needed by many companies for their data-intensive workloads. By leveraging Bare Metal, users can select their own operating system, enjoy their own hardware, free of the “noisy” neighbors that come with shared infrastructure, and provision a server in just minutes. 

Additional benefits extended to Cox Edge customers with Bare Metal include: 

  • Enhanced security  
  • Greater processing power and GPU options 
  • Consistent network performance 
  • Flexible Configurations 

The Bare Metal servers delivered in partnership with Hivelocity include both premium performance and cost-conscious options with Intel and AMD processors, the latest NVMe and SSD storage, high-speed memory, and networking, available all over the world. With this range of options, customers can find the exact fit for their data-intensive projects quickly and easily.  

Hivelocity— A Partner In Bare Metal 

Hivelocity has been an industry leader and fixture in the dedicated server and bare metal space for over 20 years. “We are thrilled to partner with Cox Edge in offering our servers on the Cox network and beyond. Bare Metal is just a part of a customer’s IT estate and Cox Edge is delivering value by offering to solve multiple problems under one cohesive interface and billing experience.” – Richard Nicholas SVP, Corporate Development 

Bare Metal Use Cases 

How can Bare Metal accelerate your workloads? In a number of ways. Here are just some of the use cases where Bare Metal is a great option: 

Migrating from On Prem to Bare Metal 

For many companies, a transition to the cloud from on prem must be done carefully,  whether due to compliance concerns or just wanting to remain in full control. Bare metal services are a perfect solution, bringing many of the benefits of on-prem dedicated servers along with the flexibility of a cloud infrastructure.   

Vertical Scaling 

Many spaces, including retail, gaming and Enterprise IT, that have evolving demand and needs require reliable vertical scaling options. Bare Metal can deliver, providing companies with a fast and easy way to scale up to a more powerful server whenever the need arises.  

Optimizing Your Dev Environment With Bare Metal 

At this point, no legacy infrastructure can match the speed and agility of virtualization when it comes to development. Sticking with out of data solutions can result in slower development, delayed time to market, and an increase in costs.  By using Bare Metal, developers and IT can leverage speed and efficiency needed to run their applications from development to deployment.  

The Cox Edge Infrastructure: The Art of the Possible 

With the addition of Bare Metal, Cox Edge adds to its already diverse range of products. The company’s approach to full-stack edge cloud is just one of the reasons why customers should come explore the “art of the possible” with Cox Edge. Additional products on offer within Cox Edge, include VM, containers, CDN, WAF and more, making it a go-to solution for those in need of comprehensive and efficient edge cloud services.
