Just add data.

Your application may generate huge volumes of meaningful and valuable data, but if you don't have the time and energy to invest into building and managing a scalable big data environment, you'll find it difficult to extract meaning and value from that information.

To save you the headache of operating your own big data environment and the heartache of missing out on the value of your data, we've teamed up with Cloudant, another IBM company, to provide you with a managed NoSQL cloud database service on the SoftLayer platform.

Bare Metal Power

Cloudant leverages SoftLayer infrastructure, assuring high-performance and reliability.

Higher Scalability

Cloudant data layer scales automatically to handle millions of users and terabytes of data.

Full-time Management

Cloudant data layer is monitored and cared for 24x7 by expert, certified Cloudant team members.

With Cloudant, provisioning is instant, and development is easy. Get, put, index, and query JSON data and attachments via a RESTful API. Thousands of developers of large-scale or fast-growing Web and mobile applications have chosen to develop with Cloudant on SoftLayer, because Cloudant is more than a hosted database. It also features built-in:

  • Data distribution and geo-load balancing across a global network of SoftLayer data centers for high availability and lower data access latency.
  • Full-text indexing and search for enhancing your app with text document processing and analytics.
  • Incremental MapReduce for developing real-time analytics.
  • Data replication and sync between Cloudant and on-premise data centers or mobile devices to enable off-line app usage.
