SoftLayer Hits Record With Server Installations

Dallas—February 26, 2007—Today, SoftLayer Technologies announced record sales for server installations during the month of January. "Sales for our dedicated servers have been unprecedented," said Lance Crosby, President and Chief Executive Officer of SoftLayer. "Over the last 30 days, we have successfully installed over 1,000 new dedicated servers."

According to Mr. Crosby, several key factors play an integral role in the dramatic increase in sales for the on-demand hosting provider. "We pride ourselves on the ability to deliver a host of world-class solutions designed to meet any hosting need," he said. "However, we've learned that sales are more often driven by service than solutions and focusing on the customer has been our number one priority."

Beyond SoftLayer's commitment to impeccable customer service, the company attracts customers by offering a wide array of dual and quad core enterprise servers from both AMD and Intel, not to mention an industry leading control panel with comprehensive feature set. "Whether it be best-in-class offerings, a revolutionary private network or enterprise quality service at aggressive prices, we are committed to setting the new standard within the hosting industry," said Mr. Crosby.

Additionally, SoftLayer recently upgraded its two backbone providers, Verio and Internap, to multiple 10-gigabit connections, as well as integrated IPMI 2.0 Server Management with their proprietary management portal. With the newly added IPMI 2.0, customers now have access to key features including, remote reboot, remote console, server monitoring, and granular reporting.

"Over the next several months, our customers will reap the benefits of our continued dedication to making IT infrastructure low risk and trouble free," concluded Mr. Crosby. "Our goal is to virtualize the entire datacenter and bring it forward into our customer's place of business."
