We started Packet in 2014 with the goal of bringing the experience of the cloud to physical infrastructure, no matter what it was or where it lived.
With a few years under our belt, we've battle tested our automation technology the old fashioned way: by helping users deploy over 60,000 instances per month across our global public cloud locations.
Anyone that has dealt with physical servers at any scale knows how quickly the simple things can become complex. So instead of architecting for consistency, we went the opposite direction - building a platform that is incredibly good at handling a wide variety of hardware in a wide variety of locations.
We now manage tens of thousands of physical servers, built by a dozen different manufacturers, across three architectures and over 20 global facilities. We support 15+ official operating systems, and a large percentage of deployments feature a custom image defined by our users. And with all that, we're just getting started!

Packet’s platform controls the lifecycle of hardware at scale.
From basic provisioning, to the nitty gritty of firmware management, our platform is designed to smooth out the gnarly world of hardware so that you can take full advantage of it (but without the headache and heartache). Our proof lies in tens of thousands of machines deployed each month.
