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

DNSnetworks 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.

SSD Local Storage Availability

Benefit from high-performance SSD local storage

To deliver peak storage performance, DNSnetworks began installing solid state drives in virtual server host nodes in 2014. All virtual servers ordered with local disk storage in the data centers launched after that transition are provisioned with SSD resources at no additional charge. Those facilities include: Ottawa and Vancouver Tier 3 Datacenters.
