(also bare-metal deployment)
Bare-metal provisioning is installing an operating system or applications directly onto a server’s hardware without an intervening layer such as a virtual machine or a hypervisor. The term “bare metal“ refers to the actual physical hardware.
See also: clean instal
Bare-metal provisioning can provide better performance and efficiency because no other operating systems or virtual machines are competing for the server’s resources. However, it can also be more complex to manage. It has less flexibility than a virtualized environment where you can easily create, delete, and move virtual machines.
