Re: bar metal The competition between AWS and Oracle continues, both now exploring this will probably not lead to some obvious adantages for either but some subtle shaving of costs and efficiency improvements in the end.

Re: bar metal Hmm. I'm not sure if that's what Amazon is actually doing here. Bare Metal could be implemented in different ways that doesn't necessarily mean you're getting your own dedicated server? Why not just get a dedicated managed server then?

Re: bar metal @ Ariella if that is the case I am not sure I would take that tradeoff, especially in today's atmosphere!

Re: bar metal @greofioffe yes it makes sense that it would improve performance and likely reduce some security risks.

Re: bar metal Oh, it was a gap in AWS portfolio of services...

With baremetal, it's better performance and lower license fees..., and am sure less anxiety re, security  - overall, win-win for all

bar metal < A "bare metal" server is where a virtual machine runs directly on hardware, for improved performance.> I was a bit confused by what it accomplishes and how. I found this helpful: http://www.internap.com/2015/02/26/bare-metal-vs-hypervisor/ It put it this way:

Bare metal is a single tenant server. This means only you are taking the resources of the server. The server belongs to you and you only. Compared to the cloud model where multiple users (multi-tenancy) reside on the same physical server, the bare-metal server only has one customer on the server.
