SoftLayer® Provides Mobile Application for Android™ OS

Delivers SoftLayer Server and Resource Management Tool for Android-based Devices

DALLAS—Jul. 15, 2010

SoftLayer Technologies®, the innovative on-demand data center services provider, today announced the recent release of its SoftLayer Mobile Client for AndroidTM. The application brings much of the functionality of SoftLayer’s highly valued Customer Portal in a native client for Android OS-based devices.

SoftLayer Mobile Client for Android includes capabilities for managing:

  • Tickets: Allows the creation and viewing of tickets for support questions or requests.
  • Servers: Provides details about Dedicated Servers, Virtual Servers, and CloudLayerTM Computing Instances, as well as the ability to manage system startup, shutdown, pinging, and reboot.
  • Bandwidth: Delivers bandwidth usage information for Dedicated Servers, CloudLayer Computing Instances, and Virtual Racks.

"SoftLayer is committed to making hosting and server management as easy and convenient as possible for our customers. So we've leveraged the power, security, and connectivity of the latest mobile devices to take that convenience even farther—literally wherever our customers go," said Nathan Day, SoftLayer Chief Technology Officer. "And as a native application, Mobile Client for Android truly provides robustness and a level of control that just isn’t possible with a mere mobile-web version of a management portal."

SoftLayer Mobile Client for Android is available for free download through the Android Marketplace or the SoftLayer website. A native Mobile Client for iPhone®, iPod touch®, and iPadTM is already available, and applications for additional mobile devices will be released soon.
