A bare metal server is a physical server with a single tenant. In other words, a physical server for the exclusive use of the hiring client and which is not shared with other organizations or users. Along with virtual servers, networking, and storage, bare metal servers are an essential part of the IaaS cloud service model.

Features and benefits of Bare Metal servers
As a type of cloud computing service within the IaaS model, bare metal servers allow companies to delegate the cost and complexity of building and managing their own physical servers. They also offer numerous benefits, including:
- Full control over physical machines.
- Customizing the server to fit your project workloads.
- High scalability.
- High, predictable performance (without excess resources).
- Business continuity guarantees.
- Benefits in terms of security and regulatory compliance linked to the exclusive use of servers by companies.
Additionally, unlike cloud servers, bare metal servers do not come with a pre-installed hypervisor. This gives customers complete freedom to deploy hypervisors and orchestrators. Companies can deploy their infrastructure with any virtualization system (XEN, Docker, Kubernetes, KVM, Hyper-V, Proxmox, Citrix, VMware…) or without virtualization.
Bare metal servers and dedicated servers
Both terms are often used interchangeably since bare metal servers are actually dedicated servers offered as a service. However, unlike traditional dedicated servers, bare metal servers offer shorter provisioning times and more features and business benefits, such as GPUs.
