A bare metal server is designed to run specific physical server without any interruptions for a longer period and is said to be highly stable & reliable. These servers are used by a single tenant unlike other cloud servers which are used by multiple tenants without the independence of having a dedicated server. The bare metal user has complete control over the physical machine with benefits of greater processing power. The dedicated server does not have hypervisor pre-installed and the users have the flexibility to choose their own operating systems and to make changes in the hardware and software according to the nature of workloads. 


The global Bare Metal Clouds market is driven by increased usage of bare metal cloud because of the move toward OpEx, as more on-premises services and technology migrate to the cloud, companies are shifting from CapEx to OpEx. CapEx (capital expenditure) items are large investments, such as purchasing a new server farm. CapEx model can provide up a plethora of internal opportunities. It frees up important resources that would otherwise be spent managing onsite infrastructure, makes future expenditure more predictable, and many more, which is enhancing the adoption of the bare metal cloud as well. 


The market is expected to have new opportunity as the bare metal cloud provides customization option, which provides consumers with a completely new set of experiences and increases the demand of bare metal cloud. Because it’s the user’s pick of operating system and configuration from the bottom up, bare metal allows the user with a great deal of customization. The user may even run their own environment by combining it with a hypervisor, which is majorly accountable for the growth of Bare Metal Cloud market. 


The major restraining factor of the market is the backdoor plantation by hackers, they may install firmware backdoors on these servers, which could then be used against the device's next client. To prevent from this, logs are to be deleted by the previous user. If not done, could gain insight into the actions and behaviour of the previous owner of the device, while knowing the BMC root password could enable an attacker to more easily gain control over the machine in the future, which hampers the growth of the market. 


The Covid-19 pandemic hampered the growth of market to major extent which has created a major challenges for the market growth. Also, there have been several other challenges hampering the growth of bare metal cloud, which include bare-metal cloud services can be limited. For example, when a physical server is virtualized, admins can provision a wide range of standardized VM types from the underlying hardware. But a bare-metal cloud instance is a complete server, so there is a limited number of instance sizes and types available, which is a major challenge for the market. 


The report provides in-depth analysis of global Bare Metal Clouds market, market size, and compound annual growth rate (CAGR) for the forecast period of 2022-2028, considering 2021 as the base year. The bare metal cloud provides direct control of the server and its resources, which increases its popularity and the market is expected to witness the growth at a CAGR at specific CAGR from 2022-2028.
