How does it work?
Bare Metal Solution provides purpose-built bare metal machines in regional extensions that are connected to Google Cloud by a managed, high-performance connection with a low-latency network fabric. Google Cloud provides and manages the core infrastructure, the network, the physical and network security, and hardware monitoring capabilities in an environment from which you can easily access all Google Cloud services.
What does the Bare Metal Solution environment include?
The core infrastructure includes secure, controlled-environment facilities and power. The Bare Metal Solution environment also includes provisioning and maintenance of the sole-tenancy hardware with local SAN, and smart hands support. The network, which is managed by Google Cloud, includes a low-latency Cloud Interconnect connection into your Bare Metal Solution environment. And you have access to other Google Cloud services such as private API access, management tools, support, and billing.
What are you responsible for?
You are only responsible for your software, applications, and data while Google Cloud handles the support, backup maintenance, monitoring, logging, and security. You can bring your own license of the specialized software such as Oracle.
