Happy Friday everyone. To get you started, we’re releasing some long-awaited additions to our Licensed OS list!
Deploy Automated Infrastructure, Anywhere
Packet’s flexible technology enables rapid deployment and management of physical infrastructure at scale. From our global bare metal public cloud to our fully on-premises software solution, we automate infrastructure regardless of what it is, where it is, or who owns it.
18+ Global Locations
With our public cloud, you can tap into on demand, spot market, and reserved bare metal globally.
Need a custom location or configuration? We can do that too!
Fully Automated Integrations
- DevOps Integrations
- API Docs & Libraries
- Public Roadmap
- Community Slack
Our bare metal platform was built for an API-first world. From native libraries and DevOps tooling to hosted solutions, our goal is to help you manage your infrastructure programmatically.
Welcome to the heart and soul of Packet: our API, which allows you to interact with your devices, user account, and projects using conventional HTTP requests.
Whatever you can do via our portal, you can also do via our API. All requests can be sent to the following endpoint:

Stay up to date with all features, integrations, and improvements.
We're happy to announce that, starting today, we're rolling out a new feature to support installations in under 60 seconds.
Our initial support for “60 Second Installs” is centered around the Ubuntu and CentOS distributions, and the t1.small config. We will be expanding this functionality to other machine types as well as Custom iPXE, NixOS, Container Linux (CoreOS) and more in the coming weeks and months. Stay tuned!
API support added for (bulk) deploying on demand in any location or prioritized locations with the option to diversify.

"The Packet team was super helpful in getting things set up, including working with us to deploy a custom kernel built to help with rpi1 compatibility. They were also really good about letting us try out the hardware for quite a long time to make sure it fit our requirements fully."Read about Resin.io & Packet or view all stories
"One of the reasons we chose Arm was because no one else is doing it. As the support and community grows we’re seeing a lot more interest in Arm, so it’s a selling point for us to be on a platform like Packet that supports it as a 1st class citizen."Read about Supergiant & Packet or view all stories
"Within a matter of weeks, Packet had built the location. They didn’t have an earlier presence in that data center. About an hour after they had announced that they’d got it up and running, we rolled out our stack and were serving live traffic from there. This actually happened to be a Friday night. Monday, we were in Barcelona, doing live demos at the Mobile World Congress, running from that site."Read about Hatch & Packet or view all stories
"Packet’s offerings seemed ideally suited for GeoSpace Labs’ needs. Everyone else seemed oriented towards uploading pictures and shopping carts and stuff, and that’s just not what we’re about. Our system is very processing-heavy, so we need the CPU cores."Read about GeoSpace Labs & Packet or view all stories
"Packet has faster default hardware available, but we also worked with Packet’s team to do custom hardware configurations for our database servers. We went from needing to imminently add database servers on our old provider, to having a lot of excess capacity at Packet."Read about One Signal & Packet or view all stories
