At Data Canopy, we leverage global carriers, a highly secure cloud, and worldwide data center facilities to cover all of your data center needs.

Definitions of the Services that Data Canopy Provides.

Data Canopy provides two different services to their customers, Bare Metal as a Service and Hardware as a Service.

Bare Metal as a Service

A bare metal server is a physical computer specifically designed to run dedicated services from preconfigured settings. It is highly stable, durable, and reliable. The physical server does not have a hypervisor or Cloud software on it. Canopy Metal is run on Dell hardware in Tier III data centers that are compliant.


Hardware-as-a-service (HWaaS) is a procurement model that is similar to leasing or licensing in which hardware that belongs to a managed service provider (MSP) is installed in a colocation facility. The customer chooses the hardware, and they are allowed to customize it.

Data Canopy Overviews


Bare metal servers offer you the flexibility to grow your infrastructure as you need without a long-term hardware commitment. They are an excellent option for companies needing to host proprietary software, development environments, and more. Quickly deploy and scale to keep pace in a rapidly changing market with custom-fit server infrastructure ready to scale as you need it.


Data Canopy’s Hardware as a Service offering enables you to build out your infrastructure completely custom to your requirements without capital expenditure.
