Scale your computing resources on-demand. CloudLayer Computing lets you deploy virtual cloud servers (CloudLayer Computing Instances) in as few as five minutes.
Built on SoftLayer's automated infrastructure expertise and Citrix® XenServer™, CloudLayer cloud servers stand alone or seamlessly integrate with the rest of your SoftLayer dedicated servers, virtual servers, automated services and additional CloudLayer services. You can create a unified computing environment with unequaled efficiency and interoperability.
Each cloud server is guaranteed to be based on 2.0GHz (or faster) processor, comes with your choice of operating system, access to multiple image templates for fast deployment and leverages our proprietary Flex Images™ technology. With Flex Images, you can capture an image of a dedicated or cloud server and then deploy it on either type of system, and also store, share or publish images from one image library.
With Public, Private, and Bare Metal Cloud options and local- or SAN-based primary storage options, you can choose a cloud server best suited to your application. Our one of a kind Build Your Own Cloud server tool provides an even higher level of granularity, letting you custom configure your cloud server's number of cores, RAM and storage capacity. And with Portable Storage Volumes as a secondary storage solution, you can move your storage from one cloud instance to another.
CloudLayer Computing Options
Local Disk Storage: Primary storage implemented at RAID 10 with faster input/output speeds, our Local Disk Storage solution is ideal for storage-intensive applications and a lower total cost of operations.
SAN Storage: A primary storage solution, featuring automatic recovery for higher hardware resiliency and compute-intensive applications.
Portable Storage Volumes: Our secondary storage volumes are portable and persist separately from the life of a CloudLayer Computing Instance, so you can easily move volumes from one instance to another. Useful for database applications that require access to raw, unformatted block-level storage.
Monthly and Hourly plans include unlimited inbound and private network bandwidth. Monthly plans include 1000GB of outbound bandwidth per month ($0.10/GB charge for additional bandwidth). Hourly plans do not include any outbound bandwidth ($0.10/GB for all outbound bandwidth).

Additional Storage Pricing
Need more storage for your cloud server? Add SAN or Local Disk secondary storage to any CloudLayer Computing Instance.
As Portable Storage Volumes, your secondary storage persists separately from the life of your cloud server, so you have the flexibility to easily move the volume from one cloud server to another—even between SoftLayer data centers. They’re useful for database applications that require access to raw, unformatted block-level storage and for moving large data sets between cloud servers.
Note: SAN storage can accommodate up to four Portable Storage Volumes. Local Disk storage can accommodate one Portable Storage Volume.
