Rackspace OnMetal vs SingleHop: What are the differences?
Rackspace OnMetal: Single-tenant, Baremetal Cloud Servers from Rackspace. OnMetal servers are single-tenant, bare-metal servers provisioned via the same OpenStack API as our cloud. They can be spun up as quickly as VMs to offer the agility of multi-tenant environments with the performance of single-tenant hardware. OnMetal servers are our own design and are engineered in a highly opinionated way. We’ve made them 100 percent solid-state with external cooling, leading to increased mean time between failures (MTBF). They are also incredibly large, so you’ll need fewer of them; SingleHop: Enterprise-class, name-brand dedicated servers. SingleHop's bare metal dedicated servers offer a unique blend of on-demand computing and dedicated, predictable performance. By combining cloud-style automated deployment with physical dedicated servers, customers are able to deploy fully private computing resources in hours, not days or weeks.
Rackspace OnMetal and SingleHop can be categorized as "Dedicated Cloud Hosting" tools.
Some of the features offered by Rackspace OnMetal are:
- Provision instantly, instead of in hours or days.
- Manage as easily as virtual cloud servers through our Cloud Control Panel and the OpenStack API.
- Integrate with your existing cloud architecture.
On the other hand, SingleHop provides the following key features:
- Dedicated Resources
- Wide Range of Operating Systems
- Hybrid Capable
