Description of this company available at Jigsaw.com.
In June 2005, ten principals wanted to build a technically superior hosting service for those customers continuing to evolve in their IT needs. Spending months brainstorming ideas and architectures, the team looked to address all the challenges in the current hosted solutions available. SoftLayer was born. While creating and designing a new method of hosting previously unknown, it became clear that numerous systems and technical strategies must be combined to create this new service. Through the use of public and private networks, the foundation of SoftLayer was created - network-within-the-network design. In this design, each server has two network interfaces with each interface connected to a separate fully redundant routed network. With a complex set of systems designed to create an environment that is easily managed from the remote user perspective, the end goal of absolute control in terms of management and administration has been achieved.

Making an Impact: Catalyst and BEHUM
Mar 04, 2014
Running a startup is hard. We all know that. The right help at the right time makes all the difference, and for many, finding that help is a challenge. Not knowing who to ask for help or where to meet the right people to help move the needle in the right direction, many entrepreneurs and startup teams don't even know where to start.
SoftLayer at IBM Pulse 2014
Feb 20, 2014
When you plan your IBM Pulse schedule, you'll want to know where to find SoftLayer in the sea of people, sessions and events in Las Vegas next week. I consolidated some of the SoftLayer-specific highlights into this blog post, but by the time I got to the end of the post, it seemed like a daunting amount of content. To give the blog audience a "tl;dr" ("too long; didn't read") alternative, I convinced a few of my coworkers into sharing a quick overview of our activities via video:
Building a Bridge to the OpenStack API
Feb 06, 2014
OpenStack is experiencing explosive growth in the cloud market. With more than 200 companies contributing code to the source and new installations coming online every day, OpenStack is pushing hard to become a global standard for cloud computing. Dozens of useful tools and software products have been developed using the OpenStack API, so a growing community of administrators, developers and IT organizations have access to easy-to-use, powerful cloud resources.
Risk Management: 5 Tips for Managing Risk in the Cloud
Feb 03, 2014
Security breaches have made front-page news in recent months. With stories about Target, Neiman Marcus, Yahoo! and GoDaddy in the headlines recently, the importance of good information security practices is becoming harder and harder to ignore — even for smaller businesses. Moving your business into the cloud offers a plethora of benefits; however, those benefits do not come without their challenges. Moving your business into the cloud involves risks such as multi-tenancy, so it's important to be able to properly manage and identify these risks.
Simplified OpenStack Deployment on SoftLayer
Feb 03, 2014
"What is SoftLayer doing with OpenStack?" I can't even begin to count the number of times I've been asked that question over the last few years. In response, I'll usually explain how we've built our object storage platform on top of OpenStack Swift, or I'll give a few examples of how our customers have used SoftLayer infrastructure to build and scale their own OpenStack environments.
Get Your Pulse Racing

What will the future bring for SoftLayer and IBM? Over the past six months, you've probably asked that question more than a few times, and the answer you got may have been incomplete. You know that IBM is supercharging SoftLayer expansion and that our platform will be the foundation for IBM's most popular enterprise cloud products and services, but you've really only seen a glimpse of the big picture.

What's Next? $1.2 Billion Investment. 15 New Data Centers.
Jan 17, 2014
SoftLayer was founded in a living room on May 5, 2005. We bootstrapped our vision of becoming the de facto platform for cloud computing by maxing out our credit cards and draining our savings accounts. Over the course of eight years, we built a unique global offering, and in the middle of last year, our long-term vision was validated (and supercharged) by IBM.

Keep Spending Most Our Lives Livin' in a Gamer's Paradise
Jan 15, 2014
With apologies to Coolio, I couldn't resist adapting a line from the chorus of "Gangsta's Paradise" to be the title of this blog post. While I could come up with a full, cringe-worthy cloud computing version of the song (and perform it), I'll save myself the embarrassment and instead focus on why "Gamer's Paradise" came to mind in the first place.

Platform Improvements: VLAN Management
Jan 10, 2014
As director of product development, I'm tasked with providing SoftLayer customers greater usability and self-service tools on our platform. Often, that challenge involves finding, testing, and introducing new products, but a significant amount of my attention focuses on internal projects to tweak and improve our existing products and services. To give you an idea of what that kind of "behind the scenes" project looks like, I'll fill you in on a few of the updates we recently rolled out to improve the way customers interact with and manage their Virtual LANs (VLANs).

How to Report Abuse to SoftLayer
Dec 05, 2013
When you find hosted content that doesn't meet our acceptable use policy or another kind of inappropriate Internet activity originating from a SoftLayer service, your natural reaction might be to assume, "SoftLayer must know about it, and the fact that it's going on suggests that they're allowing that behavior." I know this because every now and then, I come across a "@SoftLayer is phishing my email. #spamming #fail" Tweet or a "How about u stop hacking my computer???" Facebook post.

Protect Your Data: Configure EVault for Server Backups
Nov 19, 2013
In "The Tenth Anniversary" episode of "Everybody Loves Raymond," Raymond accidentally records the Super Bowl over his wedding video. He hilariously tries to compensate for his gaffe by renewing his wedding vows so he can make a new tape for his wife Debra. If life imitates art, it's worth considering what would happen if that tape held your business data. It would be disaster!
