Solve your most complex problems, faster.
You’ve built the applications to solve your most challenging problems. Now all you need is the competitive advantage: you need high performance computing (HPC). Use SoftLayer’s ever-ready, flexible cloud and start reaping the rewards of HPC.
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.

Getting the most out of your SoftLayer solution.
It's easy to make the choice to accelerate your HPC solution with a GPU. SoftLayer offers various NVIDIA GPUs that balance out your needs. But you don’t have to settle there.
SoftLayer lets you pick a data center that’s local to you and your workload. Then you can add the extra power of Solid State Drives, choose up to 10Gbps network uplinks, as well as configure 14 areas of the server, tailoring each server to your requirements.
When it comes to managing your workloads, we also recommend adding best-in-class software like IBM Platform Symphony for grid management and smart scheduling, IBM Platform LSF for more efficient and complete workload management, and IBM Spectrum Scale to manage large unstructured datasets.
