Type 1E - The Edge Node

The Type 1E (for Edge, of course) is our server at the edge! Its integrated GPU processor, dual NICs and reasonable price make it a perfect fit for those latency specific use cases.

Deploy Now: Just $0.50365

The "I Can See My House From Here" Server

Develop locally and then deploy (literally) globally on bare metal at the edge for $0.50 / hr.  Just like our original Type 1, the Type 1E features a solid 32 GB of RAM, a fast SSD, and an affordable price point to handle a wide variety of workloads.   

However, we've boosted the networking setup to dual 10 Gbps NIC's (from 1Gbps) and replaced the processor with a flexible 4 core (8 hyperthreaded core) E3-1578L, which can burst to 3.4Ghz and includes an integrated graphics accelerator (the Intel® Iris™ Pro Graphics P580).

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

Packet is a great choice for running containers on bare metal. We found their flexible APIs and support for CoreOS made for an easy integration and Their high spec servers provide great performance at an affordable price compared with traditional VM based clouds.

Ross Fairbanks Chief Architect @ Microscaling Systems

With their 'no overlay' bare metal cloud platform, Packet has taken pure Layer 3 network automation to the next level.  We're thrilled to work closely with Packet and see Project Calico users build scalable virtual networks on top of bare metal.

Andrew Randall CEO @ Tigera

As the world's leading DNS & traffic management platform, we require access to high performance network capacity across the globe.  We've found Packet's on-demand bare metal compute and API controlled networking features to be the perfect tool to scale our global delivery network.

Jonathan Sullivan SVP of Operations @ NS1

At Grafana.net, we're collecting, processing and storing millions of data points per second for our global customers.  Packet's NVME-powered bare metal servers and global availability zones give us the horsepower we need to power our SaaS monitoring and metrics service.

Raj Dutt Founder & CEO @ Raintank

With Packet users get a cloud platform that supports infrastructure how Google does — on bare metal, with full automation. That’s why we chose Packet as a key platform partner for Tectonic, the Enterprise Kubernetes distribution.

Brandon Philips CTO @ CoreOS

Packet's platform is a natural fit for Rancher, and we're excited to bring this new infrastructure option to our users.

Shannon Williams Co-founder @ Rancher

When Cloud 66 customers asked about running containers on bare metal, Packet was the obvious choice. They offer best of breed functionality when it comes to combining the power of bare metal with the flexibility of the cloud.
