Market Overview

The Bare Metal Cloud Market was valued at USD 1.75 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 10.56 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 35% over the forecast period 2020 - 2025. Although bare metal cloud is not virtualized, it can still be delivered via a cloud-like service model. By combining cloud hosting with bare metal servers, the bare metal cloud has emerged out to be an effective medium for high-performance applications.

  • The advent of artificial intelligence is anticipated to boost the deployments of bare metal servers across a multitude of markets attributed to the fact that AI requires large data sets and significant processing speed and I/O power. 
  • The increasing necessity of Non-locking Compute and Storage Resources across the globe is also expected to boost the growth of the bare metal cloud market.
  • As bare metal can enable to get control of the full stack and can optimize utilization and performance to a granular level, the future applications are expected to use the bare metal cloud instead of completely virtualized environments.

Scope of the Report

A bare metal cloud is a combination of characteristics of traditional hosting and virtualized cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). It offers on-demand capacity, where servers are deployed in less than an hour (usage-sensitive pricing). Billing is based on the amount of capacity committed or used; with minimal time increments (with a range from one hour to one month), and self-servicing, where enterprise customers deploy workloads via a portal.

Key Market Trends

BFSI to hold Significant Share

  • The banking vertical predominantly requires bare-metal cloud services with the rise in the transactions and details related to them.
  • Moreover, the critical need for high security and data protection during online banking, secure transactions, and access violations has also pushed the data traffic demanding the use of bare metal cloud solutions.
  • Additionally, financial firms heavily rely on technology and data, in all aspects of their business. In areas, such as risk analytics, derivatives pricing, quantitative modeling, portfolio optimization, and bank stress-testing, the use of high-performance computing (HPC) for a quick performance of complex calculations on large data sets is becoming increasingly prevalent.
  • Banks and brokers are anticipated to typically use HPC and grid computing for tasks, such as real-time risk management, as they handle thousands of transactions for clients around the world at any given moment. 
  • Proprietary trading outfits, meanwhile, often need HPC to run sophisticated models. These parameters are expected to drive the growth in the adoption of bare metal cloud in the sector.
