SoftLayer

Headquartered in Dallas and operating world-class data centers around the globe, SoftLayer provides seamlessly integrated computing environments for their customers. When the company’s growth led them to the Asia Pacific region, they reached out to NTT Communications for help.


Service: IP Network

 

 

Challenges

SoftLayer has experienced exponential growth multiple times over since turning on its first server in 2006. At each stage, the company has relied on the NTT Communications Global IP Network to satisfy demand for Tier-1 network bandwidth. A new SoftLayer data center in Singapore and points of presence (POPs) in Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo, put renewed emphasis on the need for low-latency, high-capacity transpacific connectivity.

Solution

The NTT Communications Global IP Network was built to move Internet traffic at the highest speeds. Based on a single autonomous system number (ASN 2914) and providing numerous direct paths, routing options and private peering points, the Global IP Network offers virtually congestion free high-speed connectivity worldwide.

Benefits

With the NTT Communications Global IP Network, SoftLayer’s 16,000 servers in the Singapore data center experience network transits with fewer hops, less packet loss and minimal delays. NTT Communications guarantees average monthly latency will not exceed 130 milliseconds (ms), round-trip. For SoftLayer’s Singapore data center customers, this has resulted in real-world connectivity with less than 40ms latency.
