SoftLayer - The Smart Move

SoftLayer’s unified platform is designed to meet the end users requirement of giving cloud computing users the results they want

SoftLayer could be said to be the leader when it comes to one platform offering endless possibilities. Their unified platform is specially designed to meet the end users requirement of giving cloud computing users the results they want, the way they want it.  SoftLayer operates all over the United States, Europe and Asia, giving its flexible technology of data-centers, network and automation and control with no compromise on quality and security to all that require it.

The entire architecture is held together through a private global network offering higher and faster performance. Their dedicated servers operate using this common network, capable of high speed and enabling maximum functionality between the data centers.  Of course, SoftLayer is more than just speed and performance; it is the way that it is built with every service in perfect synchrony with the requirements of the individual and the firm.

Perhaps the most sought for feature behind the cloud technology is the power that one gets.  Be it virtual or bare metal, whatever the business might be, they are all deployed in real time for your web tier.  When IBM acquired SoftLayer, it gained an entire Technical Operations team that was capable of teaching the IBM team noteworthy points about efficiency in next-generation cloud computing, along with its impressive clientele which is now spread over 140 countries.  In fact, IBM had just been commenting on how much a system has to be automated while Softlayer started its operations on being fully automated.

For SoftLayer, manual provision is something that they would consider only as a final strategy because it is automation from the very start.  This is why they have fully programmed their cloud infrastructure and administration functions so that it is automatically accessible to all their customers through their unique cloud controller and API.

The company also offers a good Service Level Agreement (SLA) to provide uninterrupted performance.  Everything about SoftLayer is built mainly for small to medium sized businesses and so the focus is on affordable maintenance and functionality.  IBM and SoftLayer are currently working towards offering their clients a more comprehensive and robust technological portfolio.  The emerging portfolio will be compatible with OpenStack while retaining the interfaces which are already in existence.
