In simpler words, bare metal dedicated servers are servers without any virtualization layer in the middle. if you order a bare metal server you are the single tenant with access to all the resources.
A bare metal server makes use of hypervisors that don’t require the support of a host operating system. Hypervisors are directly installed on the hard drive and can create virtual machines as in a typical virtualized environment.
A hypervisor is computer software, firmware or hardware that creates and runs virtual machines. The hypervisor has its own device drivers and interacts with each component directly for any I/O, processing or OS specific tasks. On a hypervisor, each virtual machine has its separate guest OS and share of memory, computing power, and hard drive storage.
The reality is that bare metal cloud and dedicated servers are related because one is part of the other. A bare metal server environment is made up of 1 or more single-tenant/dedicated servers. A dedicated server is a standalone server, with a given specification, that the customer has complete administrative access to.
