Building and operating a data center involves more than filling a room with servers. Every aspect of a SoftLayer data center—from location and accessibility to power density and redundancy—is designed to guarantee its security, resiliency, and efficiency.

We build each center to the same spec and equip it to provide the full SoftLayer catalog of services. And each is staffed 24×7 with experts to troubleshoot and address the rare issues that can’t be directly resolved through our automated management system.

Each data center facility features one or more pods, each built to the same specifications with best-in-class methodologies to support up to 5,000 servers. Leveraging this standardization across all geographic locations, we optimize key data center performance variables including: space, power, network, personnel, and internal infrastructure.

All SoftLayer data centers maintain multiple power feeds, fiber links, dedicated generators, and battery backup. They are built from industry-leading hardware and equipment, ensuring the highest level of performance, reliability, and interoperability. We regularly inspect and test our redundant n+1 power and cooling resources to guarantee stability in our data center pods.
