“Moving our services to the cloud allows us to achieve global scale and consistent performance across multiple countries, helping us grow at a pace which would have otherwise taken anywhere from 3-5 years. To maintain our high standards of customer service, we wanted to be able to simultaneously monitor our global environment and load balance, as well as tune our performance to our customer's needs in real time. Being able to precisely and quickly respond to our customers’ needs in every country is a critical pillar of our global expansion, and this level of performance tuning was one of SoftLayer’s biggest differentiators.”

“We were already using SoftLayer servers and were happy with the performance. To cater to our future requirements, SoftLayer offered to network more than 100 servers at 10Gbps, with a promise of a minimum 5Gbps speed between any two servers at full load. No one else could match that. Our company philosophy is to deliver value and a great experience to our customers in all that we do. SoftLayer has really helped us to live this philosophy.”

“…SoftLayer has meant a more data-driven focus for staff and allowed them to be more autonomous. We know that everyone is aligned to the truth now, we don’t have people guessing what is going on; they have got the data, they know what they are doing. Being able to tailor the results and personalise information to specific users is very important to us and that was a key enabler in doing that….”

“Since moving to SoftLayer, we have had a total peace of mind. Now we have moved almost all of our servers to SoftLayer, because, after careful calculation and cost analysis, we are able to get three to four times more CPU and memory performance compared to our previous configuration. We sold 5,000 Big Bang concert tickets in 15 minutes, with 15,000 concurrent user at one time. There were only two online ticketing platforms selling the tickets, and our competitor’s servers died for four hours.”
