SoftLayer delivers cloud resources without the cloudy pricing. Configure your cloud infrastructure to meet your workload’s performance needs, and monitor your costs all the way down to the resource level.

Our Pricing Philosophy

Cloud costs shouldn’t be confusing.

SoftLayer offers clear, competitive pricing for high performance bare metal servers, virtual servers, and cloud services on hourly or monthly terms. Additionally, we provide complete visibility into your cloud costs, even down to the server resource level, to give you unparalleled control over your infrastructure spend.

We strive to deliver the best cloud performance for the price so that you can build your big idea, build your business, and build the future.

Modular Server Pricing

Customize your cloud with the resources you demand.

At SoftLayer, we understand every cloud environment requires different resources and not every customer needs the same servers, storage, or bandwidth as the next customer. Instead of bundling services that you may not need or forcing configurations that don’t meet your unique workload, we let you build your own cloud from the start.

Bare metal servers and virtual servers are priced the same way: Choose the compute, RAM, storage, and network resources you want to provision, and we break down the price to show you where the costs incur.

Whether you’re deploying a small virtual server or building a massive quad- processor server with 36 hard drives, you’ll be able to account for every penny of your cloud costs so that you can make educated buying decisions.
