IBM SoftLayer

Highest performing cloud infrastructure available.

SoftLayer is a platform with data centers around the world with the widest range of cloud computing options, integrated and automated through a private network and management system. Virtual and physical. Public and private. Hourly and monthly.

Softlayer provides cloud infrastructure at Internet scale. What you want, deployed on demand and in real time. That's cloud without compromise.

It starts with data centers in the U.S., Asia, and Europe. Each is built to the same demanding spec, and each device — from servers to power strips — is connected to a single, integrated management system.


Virtual Servers

SoftLayer virtual servers exceed those expectations. Our virtual servers deliver a higher degree of customization, transparency, predictability, and automation, and they integrate seamlessly with SoftLayer bare metal servers.


Bare Metal Servers

SoftLayer bare metal servers provide the raw horsepower you demand for your processor-intensive and disk I/O-intensive workloads. These servers come with the most complete package of standard features and services.


Network Gateway Appliances

Save the hassle of provisioning multiple hardware and software solutions to serve as routers, firewalls, and load balancers. Use software-defined networking solutions to create all-in-one network appliances.



Whether you're looking for standalone or secondary storage for a server, an out-of-the-box storage solution, or the components to create your own storage solution, SoftLayer has the cloud storage resources you need.



Customizable network capabilities with uplink upgrades, load balancing within or between data centers, and software-defined networking appliances that protect and optimize performance.



Keep an eye on your servers without having to watch them. Advanced monitoring and reporting resources alert you to possible problems and can trigger support or system response giving you peace of mind.
