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.

SoftLayer offers:

Single Platform

All SoftLayer services are provisioned in the same data centers. These data centers have identical network architecture and complete integration with every other data center and network PoP on our global private network.

True Flexibility

SoftLayer Flex Images lets you capture images from virtual or bare metal servers, store them in a single image library, and then deploy them on either kind of system.

Unmetered Bandwidth

The SoftLayer private network lets you transfer unlimited data between any SoftLayer services anywhere. And generous outbound public network bandwidth is included with all monthly servers.

Total Transparency and Control

All SoftLayer services come with complete visibility and direct control—from physical location to processor to power supply—through our exceptionally robust API, web portal, and mobile applications.

This chart and an accompanying report explain the five fundamentals of cloud maturity: cloud-aligned business strategies, organisational structures, corporate cultures, technology infrastructures and governance best practices.

As the basis of the Mapping the cloud maturity curve research, The Economist Intelligence Unit solicited the views of eight leading experts, based on their real-world experience, and reviewed relevant existing literature to identify the core foundational elements of a mature cloud strategy. This chart and accompanying report summarize the findings of that research. While companies can reap some benefits from the cloud without these five fundamentals, they are needed for the corporate engine to fire up at optimum capacity and realize the full benefits.
