Don’t take our word for itOur Users Deploy 60k Times Per Month

Cameron DiverSoftware Engineer, Resin.io

"The Packet team was super helpful in getting things set up, including working with us to deploy a custom kernel built to help with rpi1 compatibility. They were also really good about letting us try out the hardware for quite a long time to make sure it fit our requirements fully."

Mike JohnstonCo-Creator of Supergiant, CTO of QBox

"One of the reasons we chose Arm was because no one else is doing it. As the support and community grows we’re seeing a lot more interest in Arm, so it’s a selling point for us to be on a platform like Packet that supports it as a 1st class citizen."

Cody HillCloud Architect, Platform9

"Packet has this unique ability to deploy customizable hardware and yet provide it to us with full automation—it literally feels like we are consuming virtual machines, not dedicated servers."

Mikko PeltolaDirector of Cloud Operations, Hatch

"Within a matter of weeks, Packet had built the location. They didn’t have an earlier presence in that data center. About an hour after they had announced that they’d got it up and running, we rolled out our stack and were serving live traffic from there. This actually happened to be a Friday night. Monday, we were in Barcelona, doing live demos at the Mobile World Congress, running from that site."

Anthony WoodsCTO and Co-Founder, Grafana

"We’re building really large Cassandra and Kubernetes clusters so the Type 2s just give tremendous storage and memory capabilities. The heavier the workload, the more Packet shines."

David LadyFounding Partner and President, GeoSpace Labs

"Packet’s offerings seemed ideally suited for GeoSpace Labs’ needs. Everyone else seemed oriented towards uploading pictures and shopping carts and stuff, and that’s just not what we’re about. Our system is very processing-heavy, so we need the CPU cores."

Jake MoshenkoCo-Founder, Quay

"Because Packet is giving us the actual bare metal machines, we still have that first layer of virtualization extensions that we can use to isolate our guest machines from one another. None of the other cloud providers provide that."

George DeglinCEO, OneSignal

"Packet has faster default hardware available, but we also worked with Packet’s team to do custom hardware configurations for our database servers. We went from needing to imminently add database servers on our old provider, to having a lot of excess capacity at Packet."

"We are processing data, analyzing it, providing a decision and sending the answer back in less time that it takes to light up the LCD on the display telling you we did it."

"With Packet, we’ve found this perfect combination of bleeding-edge automation and access to raw hardware that enables us to do what we need to do."

Josh PigfordCEO & Founder, Baremetrics

"Packet simplified things. It gave us the power we needed without needing to have somebody full-time managing servers on our team."

Simon Stender BoisenChief Technology Officer, Lix

"We started looking for where we could get physical hardware but with cloud-style provisioning, and we quickly found Packet. Their on-demand provisioning was unique and the pricing was great, which also factors in when you’re a small startup."

Jake WarnerCEO & Founder, Cycle

"We started playing around with Packet's API and realized just how incredibly stable it was, and how compared to a lot of other infrastructure APIs, the failure rate was incredibly low."
