Reviewed on 26 May 2021Published on 26 May 2021

Scaleway Bare Metal as-a-Service allows you to order dedicated servers on-demand, like cloud instances. Bare Metal servers can be used for large workloads, big data and applications that require increased security and dedicated resources.

Requirements:
  1. Click Bare Metal in the Compute section of the Scaleway Console side menu. The Bare Metal creation page displays.

  2. Click Create a Bare Metal Server. The server creation wizard displays.

  3. Complete the following steps of the wizard:

    • Choose an Availability Zone in which your Bare Metal server will be deployed.
    • Choose an image to run on your server. If you don’t know yet which image you want to run on the Bare Metal server, you can order the server without a preinstalled image.
    • Select the configuration of the server you want to deploy.
    • Enter a name for the server, and optionally add a description and tags to help you organize your Bare Metal servers.
  4. Click Create a Bare Metal server to order the server.
