Rackspace will rent out access to bare-metal Open Compute servers

SAN FRANCISCO — Cloud and hosting provider Rackspace has gotten creative. The company understands people like the elasticity of public clouds and the easy management of servers in colocation facilities. So today, Rackspace announced a new service that aims to borrow advantages from both of those computing environments. It’s called OnMetal. The service skips virtualization, a technology lots of public clouds employ to split up physical servers into many virtual machines (VMs) or instances for running applications. Instead, each person can get a entire “bare-metal” server to use.
