Bare-metal virtualisation is a highly specialised service that provides a virtual machine (VM) without any operating system or application software.
Available to members of staff only.
The bare-metal virtualisation service includes a virtual machine built to one of our standard specifications (RAM, hard disk size etc), and hosted on our high availability cluster of servers.
This service is provided only for very exceptional situations, with the norm instead being a VM on our Linux or Windows hosting services.
The specification of the VM can be varied to meet specific requirements you might have. These will be discussed on a case-by-case basis.
How to request
Please allow five working days for your VM to be set up by us.
