This topic describes the features of Elastic Compute Service (ECS) Bare Metal Instance families and lists the instance types of each instance family.

Introduction

ECS Bare Metal Instance is an innovative computing service developed by Alibaba Cloud based on state-of-the-art virtualization 2.0 technology. Virtualization 2.0 endows ECS bare metal instances with the elasticity of virtual machines (ECS instances), the performance and features of physical machines, and the full support for nested virtualization.

ECS bare metal instances combine the strengths of both physical machines and ECS instances to deliver powerful and robust computing capabilities. ECS Bare Metal Instance uses virtualization 2.0 to provide your business applications with direct access to the processors and memory resources of the underlying servers without virtualization overheads. ECS Bare Metal Instance retains the hardware feature sets (such as Intel VT-x) and resource isolation capabilities of physical machines, which is ideal for applications that need to run in non-virtualization environments.

ECS Bare Metal Instance integrates features from both physical and virtual machines based on the proprietary chips, hypervisor system software, and a redefined server hardware architecture. ECS Bare Metal Instance can seamlessly connect with other Alibaba Cloud services for storage, networking, and database tasks and is fully compatible with ECS images. These properties allow you to build resources to suit your business requirements.

When you use ECS Bare Metal Instance, take note of the following items:
  • ECS bare metal instances do not support instance type changes.
  • ECS bare metal instances support failover. When the physical machine that hosts an ECS bare metal instance fails, the instance is failed over. Data is retained in the disks of the instance.

Benefits

ECS Bare Metal Instance provides the following benefits based on technological innovations:
  • Exclusive computing resources

    ECS Bare Metal Instance is a cloud-based elastic computing service that provides the same performance and resource isolation capabilities as physical machines. It can ensure the exclusivity of computing resources without virtualization overheads or performance loss. ECS Bare Metal Instance supports high clock speeds and configurations of 8, 32, 80, 96, and 104 vCPUs. An ECS bare metal instance that has eight vCPUs can have a maximum clock speed of 3.7 GHz to 4.1 GHz and provide better performance and faster response for gaming and finance scenarios than competing products.

  • Chip-level security

    In addition to physical isolation, ECS Bare Metal Instance uses a chip-level trusted execution environment of Intel® Software Guard Extensions (SGX) to ensure that encrypted data can be computed only in a secure and trusted environment. This chip-level hardware security protection provides security for your data in the cloud and allows you to control all data encryption and key protection processes. For more information, see Install SGX.

  • Compatibility with multiple private clouds

    ECS Bare Metal Instance can address high-performance computing needs and help you construct hybrid clouds. Thanks to the flexibility, elasticity, and other strengths inherited from the mix of physical and virtual machines, ECS Bare Metal Instance can implement re-virtualization and allow local private clouds to be seamlessly migrated to Alibaba Cloud without performance overheads arising from nested virtualization. This provides you a new method to move business to the cloud.

  • Support for heterogeneous instruction set processors

    ECS Bare Metal Instance uses the virtualization 2.0 technology developed by Alibaba Cloud and supports instruction set processors such as Advanced RISC Machine (ARM) at no additional costs.

Comparison of ECS bare metal instances, physical machines, and virtual machines

An ECS bare metal instance delivers better performance than a physical machine that has the same configurations. During the yearly Double 11 sales event, ECS bare metal instances deliver robust computing capabilities with millions of vCPUs to handle spikes in traffic.
