Customers of RootBSD can now deploy bare metal servers to its Dallas data center, giving them a choice of MaaS or cloud services.

RootBSD expands the bare metal server presence of its rock solid *BSD-based hosting service to its Dallas data center, with its latest MaaS release and platform available to its customers now.

The company’s facilities in Dallas are based in a secure facility that was designed for the Federal Reserve. Improvements include backup generators, biometric security, a datacenter-specific HVAC center and network uplinks to Level3 and Zayo. The data center is located in Dallas’ business district and offers connectivity to companies, banks and organizations in the city, Texas and the American southwest.

“Our customers can now deploy bare metal servers in minutes to our Dallas data center at a price that’s comparable to cloud servers,” Mark Price, RootBSD’s CEO, said. “This is in addition to the existing cloud services we offer at the location. No matter what their service needs are, whether it’s MaaS or IaaS, we can offer the best service on the *BSD platform of their choice — OpenBSD, NetBSD and FreeBSD.”

In addition, all RootBSD services come with a native IPv6 connection. RootBSD has provided *BSD IPv6 capable services for years. With the exhaustion of older, legacy “IPv4” address space, IPv6 capability is becoming a critical requirement for any online presence and RootBSD is able to bring that to the *BSD world.
