Do you want to maximize computing resources for your containerized apps?  Does your organization require dedicated physical servers to run your workloads in the cloud?

IBM is here to help with these concerns.  We are excited to announce the availability of single-tenant, bare metal worker nodes to be used in your Kubernetes clusters in IBM Cloud Container Service.  Choose a bare metal machine type that meets your needs for balanced configurations of physical compute resources, RAM-intensive machines for increased processing capability, or large local disk storage for data-intensive workloads.
