SoftLayer Technologies. Inc. Key Developments

SoftLayer Opens Data Center in London

IBM announced that SoftLayer will open a data center in London this month. It will be the latest of 15 new data centers that IBM plans to open as part of a $1.2 billion global investment to strengthen and extend its cloud services in Europe and around the world. The new facility will provide customers and their end users with SoftLayer services that meet in-country data residency requirements. It will also complement the existing SoftLayer Amsterdam data center and London network Point of Presence (PoP), both launched in 2012, to provide European customers redundancy options within the region. The London data center will have capacity for more than 15,000 physical servers and will offer the full range of SoftLayer cloud infrastructure services, including bare metal servers, virtual servers, storage and networking. It will seamlessly integrate via the company's leading private network with all SoftLayer data centers and network PoPs around the world. With these services deployed on demand, and with full remote access and control, customers will be enabled to create their ideal cloud environment--whether it be public, private, dedicated and/or hybrid. SoftLayer will start taking orders for the London data center in July with a special offer of up to $500.00 off new orders in the data center, for a limited time.

These PoPs reside within facilities operated by SoftLayer partners including Equinix, Telx, Coresite, Terremark, Pacnet, InterXion and TelecityGroup, providing exceptional access for SoftLayer customers with infrastructure collocated in the same facilities. By eliminating the role of the public Internet for customers when connecting to the SoftLayer private network, Direct Link enables customers to completely control access to their infrastructure and services, the speed of their connection to SoftLayer, and how data is routed, providing: - Higher network performance consistency and predictability. - Streamlined and accelerated workload and data migration. - Improved data and operational security.
