Workloads: Done Faster, Better, & Cheaper
Screaming fast bare metal compute pairs nicely with a modern, flexible network - especially for certain of our favorite customer workloads.
OpenStack software controls large pools of compute, storage, and networking resources throughout a datacenter, managed through a dashboard or via the OpenStack API. OpenStack works with popular enterprise and open source technologies, making it ideal for heterogeneous infrastructure.
BGP / Anycast
Our platform was purpose built to support advanced network features, including BGP support at each host and global anycast services. Happily, your Packet server nodes can talk BGP to our upstream routers (e.g. using Calico, ExaBGP, or Bird), bringing a highly scalable, rapid and flexible routing protocol to your automation toolkit.
IP Address Space
Stop getting locked into your cloud provider's address space! Packet supports bringing your own IP space (/24 or larger block) to use in lieu of our own IPs -- and with our portal and API driven automation, you can use your IPs without the complexities of running your own colocation footprint and multi-homed network.
We think container technologies are a big deal, and are changing how applications deploy at scale. Not only that, but containers don't need (or want) a hypervisor. It's a key reason why leading container projects call Packet bare metal home.
