The platform built to perform.
Cloud is not a commodity. And no matter what you call it, computing doesn’t come out of the sky. It comes from physical hardware inside brick and mortar facilities connected by hundreds of miles of networking cable. And no two clouds are built the same way.
SoftLayer gives you the highest performing cloud infrastructure available. One platform that takes data centers around the world that are full of the widest range of cloud computing options, and then integrates and automates everything.
A different kind of data center.
High performance gear. All services in all locations.
We’ve filled our global data centers with first class computing, storage, and networking gear. Each location is built, outfitted, and operated the same, so you get the exact same capabilities and availability anywhere in our footprint.
A network of networks.
Fast, resilient, and seamless around the world.
Our data centers are connected by the industry’s most advanced network within a network, which integrates distinct public, private, and internal management networks to deliver lower total networking costs, better access, and higher speed. 2Tbps between locations. Less than 40ms of latency into the private network from locations around the world.
Know What It Will Cost
Every monthly SoftLayer server comes with storage and outbound bandwidth included (250GB/month for virtual, 500GB/month for bare metal). And all SoftLayer services have unlimited inbound and private network traffic.
Know How It Will Perform
Configure a bare metal server to your exact specifications, and you’ll get the consistent, reliable performance your workloads demand. Choose a virtual server for your variable or short-term workloads, and you’ll be provisioned on nodes with 2.0GHz or faster cores.
Know Where It Is
You choose the exact data center where any of your SoftLayer services are deployed. And with our global private network, you can seamlessly connect it all—the way cloud should be.
Know What It’s Doing
The entire SoftLayer platform is automated and accessed through one API, web portal, and set of mobile apps. You can see and control every aspect of your solution and account, our network, and more, all in one place.
