Why physical servers? (in a cloud era, no less)?

While we active use public cloud services in our operations, on-premises or private clouds are not useless. For one, we offer our services for free, and to that end we can only succeed by having our own hardware. Second, data privacy is important and this way we can guarantee where the data resides, physically and legally.

We use a lot of hardware to operate our private cloud, Kubernetes cluster and virtualization centers. This gives us a viewpoint on good and bad quality brands and products. We've come to understand that people use this data as a reference point. This is also reflected on the subpage for technical trends.

Physical servers
