New name and look. Same power and control.

Powerful bare metal servers. Next-gen virtual servers. High-intensive workloads. As SoftLayer, we built our cloud to perform. Now that we're IBM Bluemix, we're taking the cloud we built from the ground up and making it the best-in-class cloud solution for your business today.

Outperform them all with IBM Bluemix

Quench your thirst for power

Every cloud server comes with a guaranteed 2.0Ghz (or faster) core — allocated with 1:1 virtual-to-physical resources and no over-subscriptions. Ever. Because the way we see it, you’re paying for your own virtual server — not part of your neighbor’s when they aren’t using it.

Control freaks welcome

Every facet of our cloud infrastructure isn’t just automated; it’s integrated and managed by a single system for an untouchable level of automation. Control everything via web portal, API and mobile apps. Feel free to deploy on-demand in your data center of choice, anywhere in the world. Get unlimited bandwidth on the private network. Come and take it.

Substitutions allowed

You want the flexibility to create a customized virtual server at the most granular level? You got it. You’ll never have to pay for pre-configured cloud servers with resources you don’t want. Complete resource customization options are now yours.

Connect up with the world

Your data travels faster than fast on our 2,600-plus Gbps network backbone with speedy data transfers around the world. With our high-performance infrastructure and high-speed network, you get the lowest levels of latency and the best overall network performance — meaning you get access to your data when you want it, where you want it.

How does IBM Bluemix stack up against the competition?

While SoftLayer and IBM Bluemix are one and the same, all cloud providers aren’t. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) isn’t the same from cloud to cloud. See how we’re different.
