We are pleased to announce that Cloud 66 is partnering with Maxihost, a global bare metal cloud provider built for developers.
Maxihost builds a platform that combines the compute power and security of bare metal servers with the automation capabilities of the cloud, allowing developers to deploy Intel and ARM-based dedicated servers in minutes across different locations around the world.
Why has Cloud 66 partnered with Maxihost?
One of the major factors is Maxihost’s global reach and prime data centre locations, from Australia to North and South America. With the new Brazilian General Data Protection (LGDP) act, a vibrant Ruby on Rails community, and our growing customer base in South America, Maxihost is a no brainer.
Like Cloud 66, Maxihost has a strong focus on developer experience. Everything you need to manage your servers can be done from the UI or API.
We love how Maxihost takes a different approach to infrastructure by combining the power of bare metal with the automation capabilities of the cloud. Together with Cloud 66 simplicity, we empower developers and businesses by making the internet faster. Additionally, we are proud to be able to call Maxihost a Cloud 66 custome r and a partner in the Cloud 66 community.
What does Maxihost offer?
Maxihost allows developers and DevOps engineers to deploy bare metal instances globally in under 10 minutes.
Bare Metal servers are usually a better option for deploying Kubernetes clusters, video services like streaming, and data processing workloads as it’s more cost-effective, provides better security and allows you to extract a lot more performance. With Maxihost, developers can easily scale configuration to meet their demands, make changes in just seconds, and adjust the infrastructure to meet their business needs.
Thanks to their API integrations, Maxihost makes sure infrastructure adapts quickly to changes in the environment. The reason so many IT teams are switching to bare metal is because it has the power and agility to keep up with fast-moving businesses.
