Popular Use Cases
Fully Integrated Hybrid Environment
Blur the lines between on-prem and off-prem resources. With a high speed, direct network link between your data centers and ours, you can move data between servers (literally) at the speed of light.
Frequent (and Massive) Backup and Storage
Back up or store huge volumes of data from your corporate data centers on your SoftLayer infrastructure (or the other way around) without paying us a cent for bandwidth. And because you have a dedicated network connection, your transfer rates will be fast, consistent, and reliable.
Customers moving sensitive financial, health, or government-regulated data to and from our cloud platform can further ensure its security by completely avoiding exposure to the public Internet at all times.
Making the Connection
Establishing a Direct Link connection to SoftLayer is simple: Extend your on-premises network into one of our available network PoP locations and cross-connect your router to ours, and we'll enable a private and secure 1Gbps or 10Gbps connection to your SoftLayer servers across the private network.
With this connection, you’ll have unfettered access to your servers on the SoftLayer platform. And because you’re connected to our private network, all traffic across your Direct Link and between your servers in all of our data centers is free and unmetered.
Direct Link is available in 18 network points of presence around the world. Choose where you want to link up to the SoftLayer private network, and let’s get connected.
