Softlayer Networking


Put our network to work.

Built on the foundation of SoftLayer’s revolutionary network architecture, we offer an extensive catalog of network-related services to control traffic to and from your infrastructure.

Customize network capabilities with uplink upgrades, load balancing within or between data centers, and software-defined networking appliances that protect and optimize performance.



On-Server Network Upgrades

Port Speed Upgrades

Each server comes standard with 100Mbps public and private network ports. For servers with high bandwidth or private network utilization, we offer speeds up to 10Gbps. For redundant network connectivity, we offer dual uplink configurations that feature redundancy on both the public and private network ports (four uplinks total per server) on compatible servers, eliminating single points of failure.

Bandwidth Packages

Deliver higher volumes of data across your network with the bandwidth your business needs with our various bandwidth packages. Multiple public network bandwidth options, including both metered or unmetered, are available for each server.

IPv4 and IPv6 Addresses

Each SoftLayer server comes with 1 primary IPv4 address. Additional IPv4 addresses are available in quantities of 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, or 32. SoftLayer also provides 1 primary IPv6 address with additional IPv6 addresses available in /64 blocks.

Virtual Private Network

Out-of-band access improves performance and security.

Securely connect to the SoftLayer private network over SSL, PPTP, or IPSEC VPN gateways. Access and manage your server infrastructure directly from the private network, or use out-of-band IPMI connectivity to access your servers on the hardware level, independently of the operating system.
