On-Premises Implementation or SoftLayer?

Calculate how much you can save by building in the cloud.

Complex multi-server environments are often provisioned in-house for financial reasons, but building an equivalent environment on SoftLayer is often less expensive (and easier!) than deploying resources on premises. Use our Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) calculator to estimate how much you can save by building on SoftLayer.
