Packet is super focused on automating hardware. Since we have a global bare metal cloud, customers often want to know how we compare to other cloud providers.
The simple answer is: we offer bare metal and other fundamental services (e.g. network) and don’t go “up the stack” into the application or managed services layers. Unlike most public cloud providers, we also provide a model by which you can deploy custom infrastructure, custom location, or even manage on-premises hardware.
If you’re interested in seeing how we stack up against various providers, we have some straight-talking comparison pages on our website. We’re also happy to discuss in real time.
