SoftLayer Adds Privacy to Dedicated, Scalable Cloud Infrastructure
Improve their service offerings to meet the demands of businesses that need a dedicated environment instead of shared infrastructure, the demand data center services provider SoftLayer Technologies (www.softlayer.com) has added private serving cloud that separates the hardware of the physical computing customers from other users, giving customers the privacy of dedicated hardware, with the scalability of the cloud.
When combined with the SoftLayer Private Network, available with all SoftLayer computing environments, customers can use the private cloud, not just for running your applications in an isolated environment, but also to transmit data securely, according to the announcement SoftLayer Monday. And as with all SoftLayer services CloudLayer, Private Cloud is available on an hourly basis or monthly.
“We are very excited to introduce private cloud serving our customers. Softlayer Private Cloud gives customers another dynamic, scalable infrastructure option, SoftLayer Chief Technology Officer Nathan Day, said in a statement. “This will provide a service to the segregation of physical computing hardware gives customers the security and peace of mind with full benefits in the scalability of the application.”
Private Cloud customers can select the number of cores needed to adapt to the workload and skills required of a single core with 1GB of RAM for either $ 159.00 per month or $ 0.30 per hour, plus $ 0.10 GB of bandwidth, up to 8-core system with 8GB of RAM for $ 399.00 per month or $ 1.00 per hour, plus $ 0.10 per GB of bandwidth.
In another ad aimed at making the cloud of utility companies, SoftLayer added Bare Metal Cloud computing cases to its line of services CloudLayer two weeks ago, offering bare-metal, cloudy cases without a hypervisor. This provides a more viable option for cloud computing workloads that require direct access to physical hardware, such as databases and compute-intensive applications.
