Bare metal is our preferred method of making resources available to customers. Each CPU 24/7 client is assigned a customized simulation environment with access to exclusively physically dedicated servers. In the interests of security, performance and flexibility, and in order to make the appropriate customer-specific adaptations, we do not use any virtualisations. With us there is no lost data.


Broadwell is Intel’s codename for the 14 nanometer die shrink of its Haswell microarchitecture. It has 5% better IPC compared to its predecessor Haswell and a better cooling.
