Enjoy self-service provisioning for both virtual and dedicated bare metal servers — with deployment in minutes for virtual servers and just hours for customised dedicated bare metal. SoftLayer IaaS delivers the control and flexibility you need to power your most demanding cloud applications. Softlayer’s 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.

It’s all wired 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.

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