The platform built to perform.

Cloud is not a commodity. And no matter what you call it, computing doesn’t come out of the sky. It comes from physical hardware inside brick and mortar facilities connected by hundreds of miles of networking cable. And no two clouds are built the same way.

SoftLayer gives you the highest performing cloud infrastructure available. One platform that takes data centers around the world that are full of the widest range of cloud computing options, and then integrates and automates everything.

High performance gear. All services in all locations.

We’ve filled our global data centers with first class computing, storage, and networking gear. Each location is built, outfitted, and operated the same, so you get the exact same capabilities and availability anywhere in our footprint.
