Case Studies

Softlayer

SoftLayer is the world’s largest privately owned hosting company.

Softlayer Logo It’s focused on delivering robust network solutions to resellers and integrators, many offering Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions.

SoftLayer likes to be responsive to its customers, so when it came to expanding across Europe, it wanted to be able to scale rapidly and reliably with ease. SoftLayer also needed the ability to deliver high standards of service, consistent with the company’s existing excellent reputation.  To build on its reputation while serving new markets in Europe, the company chose our carrier-neutral data centre in Frankfurt, both for its technical capacity and its vibrant community of 500 connectivity providers. The Frankfurt data centre offers more than 8000m2 of equipped space, together with low-latency connectivity, scalable power and space, and market proximity. While we manage the technical side of things, SoftLayer concentrates on building business and creating partnerships.

Growth exceeded SoftLayer’s run-rate business for the first three months of operation. The new business was implemented smoothly, so billings and revenue were also ahead of schedule. SoftLayer now has a robust, high-performance, low-latency platform to support its plans for significant expansion.
