Welcome to Flex Images, SoftLayer's next-generation server image capturing and deployment system. Now you have the freedom to choose, change, and grow your infrastructure to best suit your application's needs and erase the line between physical and virtual.
The idea is pretty simple: with Flex Images you can capture images from cloud or dedicated servers, store them in a single image library, and then deploy them on either kind of system.
But the advantages are huge. Capabilities that have historically only been available with virtual infrastructure—the ability to quickly clone and reload servers—now available with dedicated servers. Our automated system adapts any image on the fly, so you can deploy it on any platform or system you choose, enabling simple, seamless migration between physical and virtual environments. And it’s available in our data centers around the world connected by our peerless private network—take a development environment on a cloud server in Seattle and clone it to a production environment on a dedicated server in Amsterdam.
Finally, you can choose your technology based solely on your core application needs (even if they change) without having to giving up features. That's true flexibility. That's Flex Images.
