Dallas, Texas – Softlayer.com, a dedicated servers provider, today announced the company upgraded its global platform of 13 data centers and 16 network PoPs to offer customers more of everything.  The new features and upgrades include 5 TB public outbound bandwidth and 100 Mbps network uplinks in each server.

The company’s new CloudLayer Computing plans include more RAM, more bandwidth and more drive at the same price.  Softlayer raised the starting RAM and hard drive capacity across all its servers as standard options and reduced RAM pricing.  The company also adds more bandwidth in each upgrade package which is a plus for existing customers.  A reprsentative at Softlayer said, “Now our dedicated servers come with more of everything, except a higher price.”

SoftLayer.com already provides its customers free inbound and private network bandwidth on all its systems and it is now the only cloud infrastructure provider to offer more standard options and better performance.  “We just want to give everybody the opportunity and flexibility to do whatever it is they do in the cloud” said the CEO.

The company’s executive leadership team is so confident in its CloudLayer Computing products that it’s offering a free cloud server for one month to qualifying customers.   SoftLayer’s data centers are completely automated and include an API built on top of the system that allows webmasters to deploy servers in minutes, configure network settings on the fly and reload software remotely simply by clicking on a button.

CloudLayer Computing instances feature:

  • Seamless integration with dedicated servers
  • Custom configurations (Cores, RAM, and Storage)
  • Hourly or monthly pay-as-you-go pricing
  • Easy to use Customer Portal and mobile apps
  • Rapid deployment in as few as five minutes

This type of system is perfect for startups for the reason it eliminates several layers of management and allows webmasters to build auto-scaling applications to simplify their operations.  The best part is the plans offer hour-to-hour or month-to-month pricing so startups can grow as fast or as slow as the market allows.  About SoftLayer Technologies
