  • Bare metal is direct deployment to physical hardware whereas virtual is deployed on either a type one or type two hypervisor.

  • Hi,

     

    A bare metal environment is a computer system or network in which a virtual machine is installed directly on hardware.

    A VM is a software-based computer on a hypervisor.

  • Hello,

    Thank you. When would you use bare metal deployment vs when is better to use virtual server deployment?

    Any comparison?

  • In most cases a virtual environment would be preferred for isolation / ease of administration, but budget may hinder this.
