Evocative describes the bare metal offering as high-performance, customizable, and ideal for resource-intensive applications. The solution is available at Evocative's 20 data centers and 60 points of presence globally.

“Bare metal servers provide a solution to challenges many organizations are facing with the public cloud,” said Derek Garnier, CEO at Evocative.

“We developed Evocative Metal because we believe that bare metal and hybrid IT are the future of the industry. It is critical that as our industry continues to innovate, enterprises can scale their CPU and GPU intensive workloads to incorporate new technologies such as AI and machine learning, which could face limitations with traditional cloud solutions."

Evocative has been providing IT infrastructure services for over 25 years. The company has a presence across North America, Europe, and Asia.

OVHcloud launches second generation of Bare Metal Scale servers

Earlier this month, OVHcloud launched the second generation of its Bare Metal Scale servers, intended specifically for more demanding workloads including AI.

The second generation uses AMD's Zen 4 CPU architecture and the fourth generation Epyc processors (Genoa). The range starts with AMD Epyc 16 cores / 32 threads and scales to 96 cores / 192 threads in a single-socket configuration and is also available in a dual-socket with core counts up to 256 cores and 512 threads.

Alongside the Scale CPU-based references, OVHcloud is also offering Scale-GPU dedicated servers using the Nvidia L4 GPU for data centers.

The bare metal offering has 1Gbps to 10Gbps of guaranteed and unmetered public bandwidth, and up to 25Gbps of unmetered private bandwidth.

The OVHcloud Bare Metal Scale solution is available in the company's data centers in Canada, France, Germany, Poland, the UK, and the US, and is expected to roll out in APAC in Q1 2024.
