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.
