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

Maximize performance with on-demand deployment of bare metal servers (with single to quad processors, using four to 16 cores) and virtual servers (with guaranteed 2.0GHz cores and no oversubscription). Provision exactly what you need, including RAM, OS, storage, network, and more. Our cloud servers meet your most rigorous demands for ad serving, content streaming, and anything else you can dream up.

Better Scalability

SoftLayer servers and services are available in real-time via our portal or API. Get automated deployment of virtual servers, bare metal servers, firewalls, load balancers, and more, whenever you need them. 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

Our unique multi-layer network architecture seamlessly integrates distinct public, private, and data out-of-band management connectivity. Our public network provides more than 2,000Gbps of bandwidth and offers unmetered inbound traffic ensuring fast and easy data transmission to users around the world. Our private network 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 portal, or mobile apps for iOS, Android, or Windows Phone.
