Developed in partnership with MongoDB for optimized server configurations, software, and support.

Solution Designer

Use our solution designer to mix and match engineered server configurations to meet your application’s current needs, and easily add or remove hardware resources on demand with no long-term contracts as those needs change. Deploy one server or a cluster in a replica set in one data center or all over the world.

Engineered Server Configurations

In partnership with MongoDB, SoftLayer engineers developed base bare metal server configurations that feature the ideal ratios of processing power, RAM, and storage, with MongoDB and an optimized CentOS distribution installed. Grab them and go, or further customize any configuration to your unique needs.
