All SoftLayer data centers are built upon SoftLayer’s unique pod design concept, making them functionally independent with distinct and redundant resources, and fully integrated through SoftLayer’s revolutionary network architecture. You can have direct control over your system in any SoftLayer data center and full access to all of SoftLayer’s back-end services—all fully automated and on demand.
On-Demand, Virtual Data Center
Through IPMI 2.0 server technologies, secure and remote out-of-band management, and proprietary automated solutions, SoftLayer provides a highly scalable, on-demand, virtual data center experience.
With fully-featured data centers in Amsterdam, Seattle, Singapore, Dallas, and Washington D.C., SoftLayer provides geographic diversity ideal for maintaining system and data redundancy, as well as for placing systems in the optimal physical location for traffic volume and speeds.
Redundant, Best-in-Class Infrastructure
All SoftLayer data centers maintain multiple power feeds, fiber links, dedicated generators, and battery backup. They are built from industry-leading hardware and equipment, ensuring the highest level of performance, reliability, and interoperability.
Data Center Pod Concept
Each data center facility features one or more pods, each built to the same specifications with best-in-class methodologies to support up to 5,000 servers. Leveraging this standardization across all geographic locations, we optimize key data center performance variables including: space, power, network, personnel, and internal infrastructure.
