Digital Marketing

Advertise in this space.

To easily process consumer behavior data, serve ads in real time, and deliver Web and mobile sites for custom campaigns, you need an infrastructure provider with power and flexibility.

SoftLayer infrastructure provides the performance, control, and scalability you need to build the perfect environment for digital marketing, advertising, and media applications.



Higher Performance

Leverage a higher level of performance with on-demand deployment of bare metal servers (with single to quad processors, with four to 16 cores) and virtual servers (with a guaranteed full 2.0Ghz core and no oversubscription). We’ll give you granular control of your server, so you can choose exactly what you need, including RAM, OS, storage, network, and more. Whatever your performance requirements are, we have a server that can meet the most rigorous demands of ad serving, content streaming, and anything else you can dream up.


Higher Scalability

SoftLayer servers and services are available in real-time via our portal or API. Get automated deployment of virtual servers (in as few as five minutes), bare metal servers (in two to four hours), firewalls, load balancers, and more, whenever you need them. So when a client requests a new ad campaign or you need to scale at the last minute, your SoftLayer environment can be ready to handle the additional workload quickly. All services are billed by the hour or by the month with no long-term contracts for flexible paying-as-you-go.


Exceptional Network Performance

The unique multi-layer architecture of the SoftLayer network seamlessly integrates distinct public, private, and data center-to-data center networks. The public network features more than 20x10Gbps connections and offers unmetered inbound traffic ensuring fast and easy data transmission to users around the world. Our private network provides connects all SoftLayer data centers and points of presence for true global availability and secure out-of-band management.


Total Flexibility & Control

Enjoy complete freedom to choose the technology that best fits your needs. Deploy a bare metal server, and if your application needs change, use our Flex Images technology to image it and redeploy on a virtual server (or vice versa). Control it all via our robust API, Command Line Interface, easy-to-use Web portal, or mobile apps for iOS, Android, or Windows Phone.
