WE'VE BROUGHT THE AUTOMATION OF PUBLIC CLOUD TO BARE METAL

  • Fully Dedicated

    At Packet, everything is dedicated, nothing is shared - so you know the resources you are paying for will be there when you (and your application!) expect them to be.

  • Deploy in Just Minutes

    With average installs under 8 minutes, Packet supports all the major operating systems you've come to know and love, and some exciting new ones as well!

  • Cloud-Init & Meta Data

    Get bootstrapped into your custom server environment using cloud-init and our metadata service. Our goal is to give you the same ease of use of the shared public cloud, with the power and value of traditional dedicated server providers.

  • Robust API & Libraries

    Our growing list of platform integrations let you use the tools you know and trust to leverage dedicated Packet servers without retooling your whole stack. Or, do it yourself with our API client libraries, either way, our goal is to make it as easy as possible to integration Packet into your ecosystem.

  • Container Friendly

    We support a wide range of container ecosystem platforms out of the box, including CoreOS Tectonic, Rancher, Docker Cloud, ContainerShip, StackEngine, Docker Machine, and many more.

  • Premium, IPv6 Network

    Our network is built for production. Dual, bonded network interfaces on every server, redundant top of rack switches, fully N+1 redundant core routing network at every facility. Support for native IPv6, elastic addressing, anycast, BGP, ACLs - all controlled through our API and client portal.

WE LOVE FAST NETWORKS AS MUCH AS FAST SERVERS

Packet has built a legacy-free network to power critical workloads with low latency and high throughput. And with our global Packetbot network, we've got realtime health checks from over 100 global eyeball locations to keep us on our toes.
  • Fully Redundant

    Redundancy is built in at every level on our network: dual, bonded network interfaces on every server, redundant top of rack switches, fully N+1 redundant core routing network at every facility. We've placed a priority on network performance, stability, and reachability to end user eyeball networks like Verizon, Century Link, and AT&T.

  • Next Gen Features

    Packet connects every server directly to our own Software Defined Network, replacing cumbersome software overlay networks with Juniper-powered switching. Support for native IPv6, elastic addressing, BYO-IP and more. "Advanced" network functionality like anycast, BGP, ACLs - all controlled through our API and client portal

  • Visibility and Analytics

    We provide you with visibility into network activity beyond just bandwidth usage: things like top talkers and latency on common provider networks. We also bill for bandwidth based on destination - giving you free transit on the Packet network as well as to common providers like AWS, CloudFlare, and Fastly.
