Hivelocity, premium provider of private cloud and bare metal dedicated server solutions, is pleased to announce, as part of its expanding public RESTful API, all Hivelocity dedicated servers now offer single-click configuration with cloud-init.

“This represents a great step forward for us and for our customers,” says Steve Eschweiler, COO at Hivelocity. “Now our clients can utilize the superior performance our dedicated servers offer without sacrificing the conveniences of the cloud. By combining IaC (Infrastructure as Code) with our API and cloud-init, users can now easily and automatically configure new servers, as needed, all with simple code.”

As the industry-standard for the instant configuration of both bare metal and virtual machines, cloud-init offers an easy, automated solution to the initialization and replication of new servers. By executing customizable scripts known as User Data, cloud-init allows users to designate the intended functions of a server on its first-boot. Generate hostnames and SSH keys, install desired operating systems and databases, and bootstrap your machine’s applications, all with simple, repeatable code.

For users building at scale or working within complex, ever-changing infrastructures, cloud-init’s instant configuration is indispensable.

Now, with their new API integration and cloud-init functionality, you can deploy Hivelocity’s Instant Dedicated Servers as quickly and easily as deploying a new virtual instance. Utilize the flexibility and dynamic responsiveness of a cloud-like solution with the support and performance of Hivelocity’s world-class network and servers. Cut costs while taking back control of your infrastructure.
