Virtual Servers

Real Performers.

The cloud is not a commodity, and virtual servers aren’t the same wherever you go. You expect any virtual cloud server to have speed of deployment, flexible scalability, and pay-as-you-go billing.

SoftLayer virtual servers exceed those expectations. Our virtual servers deliver a higher degree of customization, transparency, predictability, and automation, and they integrate seamlessly with SoftLayer bare metal servers.

Public and Private Node Virtual Servers

SoftLayer virtual servers are available on public or private nodes of our public cloud. Deploy a public node virtual server for workloads suited to a multi-tenant environment. Or choose a private node and your virtual server will be deployed on a host server dedicated to you, giving you the ability to consume all of the node’s hardware resources if and when your needs grow.

One storage plan doesn’t fit all.

Local and SAN storage, and Portable Storage Volumes

SoftLayer virtual servers can be deployed with primary storage based on local disk or Storage Area Network (SAN), and with portable storage volumes as secondary storage. Whether your application needs higher disk I/O, resiliency, or long-term flexibility, you can match your virtual server’s storage to its application.
