Migrate to SoftLayer
IBM and SoftLayer have come together to extend and expand the IBM SmartCloud Infrastructure as a Service portfolio with a world class, highly automated, self services cloud infrastructure that hides the complexity of cloud.
IBM is encouraging all SmartCloud Enterprise customers and partners to migrate eligible workloads to the SoftLayer cloud environment. All migrations must be completed no later than 31 January 2014, at which time access to SmartCloud Enterprise will no longer be available.
