What is Bare Metal Environment?

Definition of Bare Metal Environment

Bare Metal Environment is a type of virtual environment which is created using  bare metal hypervisors instead of a host operating system (OS).


Bare metal hypervisors eliminate the need of a host operating system to create a virtual environment. In Bare Metal Environment, bare metal hypervisors are installed directly on the hardware or physical component and create a virtual environment by creating virtual machines without any host operating system (OS) being installed on the hardware machine. Like traditional host operating system (OS), the bare metal hypervisor has its own device drivers which are utilized to perform any input or output (I/O) operations. In a Bare Metal Environment, every single virtual machine has its own separate operating system (OS) and shared resources like storage capacity, computing power etc.
