Public Network

Every data center and network PoP has multiple 10Gbps connections to top-tier transit and peering network carriers. Network traffic from anywhere in the world will connect to the closest network PoP, and it will travel directly across our network to its data center, minimizing the number of network hops and handoffs between providers. Inside the data center, we offer up to ten gigabits per second of bandwidth to individual servers.

  • Unmetered inbound bandwidth
  • Multiple internet backbone connections
  • Automated IP routing and management
  • Servers available with port speeds up to 10Gbps
  • Geographically redundant DNS

Private Network

All SoftLayer data centers and PoPs are connected by a private network backbone. This private network is separate from the public network, and it enables you to seamlessly connect your services in SoftLayer data centers around the world. Move data between servers at no cost, and take advantage of the update and patch servers, software repositories, backend services, and more without interfering with public network traffic.

  • Unmetered bandwidth
  • Secure, customer-configurable private VLANs
  • Free server-to-server cross connects
  • Private Local DNS Resolvers
  • Servers available with port speeds up to 10Gbps

Managed Network

In addition to the public and private networks, each SoftLayer server is connected to an out-of-band management network. This management network, accessible via VPN, allows access to your server independently of its CPU, firmware and operating system for maintenance and administration purposes. Perform OS reloads, power-cycle your server, or simply use the IPMI connection to watch your server boot up.

  • Unmetered bandwidth
  • Gigabit port speed
  • OS reload and OS change servers
  • Control the power to your server
  • Use KVM over IP
