Powerful

No industry’s dataset is too complex. See how quickly you can achieve the results.

Flexible

No workload too small; no workload that grows too fast. Pay only for what you need, when you need it.

Total Control

Control every aspect of your HPC environment via a managed portal, or pragmatically through APIs.

Workload: Meet your match.

Regardless of the size and scale of your workload, SoftLayer will provide you with the perfect fit to unlock its true potential.

It doesn’t matter if you choose a single high-end Xeon CPU in the cloud running for a few hours, or a solution with multiple servers running quad CPUs, 1024GB of RAM, Solid State Drives, and the latest NVIDIA K80 GPUs, you will always get the same hard- working bare metal infrastructure, a data center that is local to you, and a single-tenant environment.

Find out what type of resources you need by checking our industry solutions. Discover how our 30-minute-deployable servers are at a price point that matches your workload— whether it’s for one time, sometimes, or all of the time.
