Storm Bare Metal provides all of the Cloud Hosting features that users love about Storm Servers like instant server setup, clone, resize, backups and Cloud Attached Firewalls but on your own private dedicated server wholly allocated to you!

True Hybrid Hosting with Easy Server Upgrades!

Storm On Demand customers can deploy flexible hybrid hosting configurations that contain a mixture of Storm Cloud Servers and Storm Bare Metal dedicated servers within the same management console. Storm makes it easy for users to move between Storm Cloud Servers and Storm Bare Metal Dedicated Servers with the click of a button! Storm allows users to easily clone, resize or restore between all sizes of Storm Bare Metal or Storm Cloud Servers. This means that if your Storm Cloud Server is getting overloaded, with a few clicks you can upgrade to a full Storm Bare Metal Dedicated Server without any migration pains. Or if you need to provision a small development sandbox to test a configuration change, you can clone your Storm Bare Metal Server to a Storm Cloud Server for few hours of testing and only be charged for what you used!


Storm On Demand Bare Metal Features:

-- Hybrid configurations: -- Manage Storm Cloud Servers and Storm Bare Metal from the same management tool. -- Dedicated Hardware: -- With Storm Bare Metal the server you are paying for is not shared, it's wholly and completely yours. -- Complete Hardware Transparency -- With Storm Bare Metal you can specify the exact CPU, RAM or Hard Drive Drive configuration you need -- Secure Private Cloud Hosting -- Storm Bare Metal customers do not share physical server resources with other users. This enables the privacy of a dedicated server with the flexibility of cloud hosting.

-- Instant Server Setup of Cloud Servers or full Dedicated Bare Metal Servers -- Easy Horizontal or Vertical Scaling -- Utility Style Hourly Billing so you only pay for what you use
