The Promise of the Cloud Delivered on Bare Metal

Improve performance and minimize cost with single tenant,
dedicated servers by the hour. Built for developers.


Improve Performance, and Lower Your Costs

No Multi Tenancy

Unlike the other major public clouds, Packet provides fully isolated dedicated servers.  No shared resources, and no noisy neighbors means you get more bang for every buck of compute.

Premium Hardware

Each of Packet's configurations are lovingly selected for extreme performance from Dell, SuperMicro and Quanta.  These are the boxes we would choose for ourselves, with NVMe Flash, super fast enterprise SSD's, and premium RAM.  

Container Ready

With its unique combination of automation and dedicated hardware, the Packet platform is perfect for running container workloads - achieving an extreme "price to performance" ratio that is hard to beat.

Scalable, Hourly Pricing

All of our compute, network and storage services are available by the hour, with no long term contracts - allowing you to burst for peak workload without over provisioning.  

No Managed Services Bloat

We were born out of the DevOps revolution - as such, our passion is building and maintaining the absolute best infrastructure automation platform on the planet, not upselling you into a variety of unnecessary services.

Layer 3 Topology

We built our datacenters in 2015, not 2005 - as such we designed a fully Layer 3 topology to increase performance and flexibility.  Bonus: bring your own Layer 2 overlay of choice!

Empower Developers with Automation

  • Powerful, Comprehensive API

    The heart and soul of our platform is a clean, well-designed API.  We have common libraries like Go, Ruby, Python, Java and PHP to help you get down to business of "automating all the things!"

  • CloudInit & Meta Data

    Packet can accept user data at provision time that can be used to customize  your server during the boot sequence. We pass the user data via our metadata service to cloud-init running on your server.

  • Leading Integrations

    From Terraform and Ansible, to Docker Cloud, Cloud 66 and Rancher - we're the most "integrated" bare metal platform on the market.   Don't see an integration you use?  Let us know!

  • Supported by Developers

    Our goal is to help you do great things with infrastructure - that's why we staff our IRC channel, live chat, and email support with experienced developers and network geeks, not sales people.

  • Automatic BGP / Anycast

    The Packet platform was purpose built to support advanced network features, including custom ASN announcements, BGP support at each host and global anycast services.

  • Bring Your Own IP Space

    Stop getting locked into your cloud provider's address space!  We support bringing your own IP space (/24 or larger block) to use in lieu of Packet IPs. Don't have your own IP space but want it? For larger blocks, we can suggest reputable IP brokers.

  • 100% IPv6 Native

    Powerful, automated bare metal servers without a flexible, production-ready IPv6 network is like a Portlandia hipster party without craft beer, or the internet without cat pictures.  Unthinkable!  

Tap Into Power Features

Fully Dedicated

With Packet bare metal, there are no noisy neighbors, shared resources, or hypervisors to gum up the works and impact your workload. Your dedicated servers are 100%, well...yours!

Automation First

Our bare metal platform was built for an API world. In addition to deployment tools like Terraform, Rancher, Containership, Cloud66 and Tutum we support AWS-style metadata and cloud-Init.

8 Minute Deploys

A single gaming server? A full Marathon cluster? No sweat! Since 99.9% of our installs deploy in under 8 minutes, you can now tap into bare metal servers just like the public cloud.

Hourly Pricing

All of our services - from servers and block storage to elastic IP's - are billed on an hourly basis, allowing you to burst up or down quickly. Monthly / annual commits available as well.

Next Gen Network

Our purpose-built network is 100% IPv6-ready with no sluggish overlays, allowing us to offer features out of the box that other providers can't or won't: Anycast, BYO-IP, and elastic addressing.

Developer Friendly

We put on our developer hats and re-thought physical infrastructure: GitHub style project & team support, an elegant API, leading integrations, and AWS-compatible meta data.

Choose Your OS

Deploy in minutes with your favorite operating system. We currently support CentOS 7, Debian 8, Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 16.04, CoreOS (Alpha, Beta, Stable), Windows 2012 R2 x64, FreeBSD and RancherOS.

Bandwidth Alliance

We help users avoid internet gridlock (and save serious money) through a unique connectivity partnership with CloudFlare, Fastly and others. Meet the Bandwidth Alliance Program!

Group by Project

Manage and collaborate on infrastructure just like you do with Github projects. No more shared passwords or multiple account logins! Added benefit? Projects define your private network by default.

Built for Production

We built our platform to support demanding applications in production. Everything from the power feeds in our data centers to the NIC's in our servers are selected with this in mind.

Curated Configs

Our configurations satisfy the most common workload needs at killer prices. Big, cheap storage? Lots of I/O? Cost effective ATOM server? We have all your workload demands covered.

Container Ready

We think container technologies are a big deal, and are changing how applications deploy at scale. That's why we built Packet to support containers from the very beginning.

"You've saved us thousands of euros this year from what we were wasting on Heroku + AWS."

Grant McLendon

Web Developer, UI/UX Developer at Rights'Up

Jelastic's cloud hosting providers choose Packet for its speed and ease of infrastructure deployment, and flexibility of network configuration. Compared with other IaaS players, Packet's advanced features are provided at an impressively lower price.

Ruslan Synytsky

"Our containers are so much faster after moving to Packet's Type 3 servers that it feels like going from dial-up to broadband."

Alex Urevick-Ackelsberg

Co-Founder / CEO @ Zivtech

Packet's ability to consistently deploy bare metal in 5-10 minutes is a huge win for our customers, and their modern API with cloud-init support made for a smooth integration.

Borja Burgos-Galindo

Director of Product Management @ Docker

"Fast provisioning times and a modern API have made Packet an exciting option for ContainerShip users who are looking to deploy containerized workloads that demand high performance and throughput."
