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.
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.
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.
Our data centers and network share a single, proprietary management system. One tool that ties together and lets you control everything—every bare metal server, virtual server, storage device, you name it—in a single pane of glass. All accessible by API, portal, and mobile applications.
With data centers across North America, Europe, and Asia, customers can provision cloud resources where (and when) they need them. Each data center is connected to our global private network, making data transfers faster and more efficient anywhere in the world. SoftLayer performance, flexibility and control isn’t just on demand, it’s also just around the corner.
The most powerful infrastructure on the most powerful cloud platform should also include the best support in the industry. Our technical support team, data center operations staff and our certified engineers are on-site 24x7 and are available via ticket, live chat, or phone when you need to speak with someone directly at no additional cost to you.
Moving your IT infrastructure onto the SoftLayer platform may save thousands in capital expenditures and operating expenses. Use our Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) tool to configure the infrastructure you need, and compare costs of SoftLayer with the costs of traditional on-premises implementations.
