Re: Few economies of scale on bare-metal
It will be interesting to see where this goes. It seems like a great add-on service for those who really need the separation that bare-metal offers.

Re: Few economies of scale on bare-metal
In my humble opinion, bare-metal somehow touches the base of cloud computing and managed service. It allows customer to really get the virtual machine and configure as what they need. This gives more flexibility and extensibility. I think this is at least one of the reasons why bare-metal is getting more and more popular.

Few economies of scale on bare-metal
Can you get the economies of scale on bare-metal that are available in the multi-tenant cloud based on virtual machines? Probably not. But sometimes it's more important to get the scalability and operability isolated from other users. Main purveyors of bare-metal are Rackspace, IBM SoftLayer and Internap.
