Remote Management: how it secures and gives you more control over your Bare Metal Servers

bareMetal_USP_controlLeaseWeb is always striving for the best customer experience and we believe that putting you in the driver’s seat is a key factor in this. After all, the more control you have, the faster you can get things done. To help you with this, we automate important self-service processes that enable you to manage your infrastructure.

Recently we launched a new free feature for our Bare Metal and Dedicated Server products which gives customers secure access to their server’s IPMI interface. The IPMI interface is a very powerful tool that can be used for many things, especially:

  • For debugging issues if your server becomes unreachable
  • Installing an operating system which LeaseWeb does not offer through the Customer Portal
  • Customizing your OS installations

All these actions are made much easier by giving access to the IPMI interface.

LeaseWeb already offered access to the IPMI interface on request by assigning a public IP address so it would be accessible over the internet. However, IPMI interfaces are not known for their security, so exposing them over the internet is far from ideal.

Building bare metal: Automation services available to all LeaseWeb customers

bareMetal_USP_controlSome 18 months ago we noticed a trend in the market that Hosting Providers that offered automated server deployments were starting to call their Dedicated Server products Bare Metal Servers. As LeaseWeb has been offering automated server deployments since 2008 it was a very logical step to follow this trend. Recently we reintroduced our Dedicated Server product next to our Bare Metal offering with a clear distinction between the two.

When you order a dedicated server with us now, it is possible to adjust the RAM and HDD configuration as you might wish. A LeaseWeb engineer can configure it exactly as desired. This may take a little longer than when you order a bare metal server, but it adds to your flexibility and freedom if you can build your server just the way you want it.
