SoftLayer Launches Public Cloud Computing Image Sharing

Hosting ReviewsDALLAS SoftLayer® Technologies, the innovation leader in Cloud, Dedicated, and Managed Hosting, today announced the launch of a public image repository for CloudLayer® Computing. Since its inception, CloudLayer Computing has allowed customers to save private image templates, enabling the deployment of additional similar instances without having to install and configure the same operating system and applications multiple times. With the new repository, these image templates can be published for all customers to use.

“One of cloud computing’s greatest advantages is exceptional deployment speed. We wanted to simplify and accelerate the deployment process even more,” said Matt Chilek, Vice President of Systems Development for SoftLayer. “The public repository does just that, letting customers deploy community or commercial instances without having to start from scratch. But, even better, it provides a vehicle for customers who create special-purpose servers or appliances—like for VOIP, Load-Balancing, or Application Hosting functions—to widely distribute their models.”

Publishing or using an image template with the public repository is a simple, automated process through SoftLayer’s industry-leading Customer Portal. Images can be searched for by criteria including publisher or template name, and then ordered on an hourly or monthly billing basis.
