As businesses worldwide struggle to find a new operational norm, budgeting and forecasting might be more difficult than usual.

When evaluating past and present trends for your business, wouldn’t it be nice to have predictable and stable expenditures for your cloud infrastructure? A contract-term bare metal server is a great option if you know that you need hardware for the long term. Lock in a lower, consistent price by choosing a 1-year or 3-year contract-term bare metal server.

Consider the following benefits and limitations:

Benefits
