SoftLayer an IBM Company

SoftLayer provides Infrastructure-as-a-Service to leading-edge customers ranging from Web startups to global enterprises. With dedicated servers and cloud servers integrated in a seamless, fully-automated platform, SoftLayer lets you blur the lines between physical and virtual and move ideas into reality.

Build on a global cloud infrastructure at Internet scale. With data centers and network points of presence worldwide—all connected by a high-speed private network—your cloud is available when and where you want it.


Virtual or bare metal. Public or private. All deployed in real time.

Our unified platform gives you cloud computing any way you want it, deployed on demand, billed hour-to-hour or month-to-month, with a single pane of glass for systems management (one portal; one API).

It's cloud without compromise.

We've wired it all together through a secure, global private network, with data centers and network points-of-presence in the United States, Asia, and Europe. 2,000 Gbps of connectivity between data centers. High-performance CDN for optimized content delivery. Redundant Tier-1 carriers to every facility for the fastest experience.

It's integrated in the industry's first network-within-a-network topology—combining public, private, and out-of-band management—for unparalleled performance, security, and control.

Standardized. Modular. Integrated. So you can deploy an application architecture designed precisely for your needs, with infrastructure control built in.

Deploy a global footprint of cloud computing instances for your Web tier, distribute high-performance physical clusters for your big data infrastructure. Seamlessly connect virtual and bare metal, SAN and NAS, our searchable object storage solution, and protect it with your option of choice from a suite of firewalls and information security solutions. Even configure a private cloud online and we'll hand you the keys in as few as two hours.
