(The Hosting News) – SoftLayer Technologies®, the innovative on-demand data center services provider, today announced that the research firm Longhaus has named SoftLayer the strongest offshore (no Australian data center) trusted infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) provider for Australian enterprises.
Longhaus conducted a detailed review based on 60 criteria resulting in the top 34 short-listed cloud providers currently serving Australian customers. Longhaus’ Pulse® methodology rates vendors based on their company performance, overall cloud solution and commitment to the Australian market.
“Receiving this recognition is great validation for the SoftLayer model,” said George Karidis, SoftLayer Chief Strategy Officer. “We are delighted to be included and look forward to gaining further traction as our international expansion plans accelerate.”
SoftLayer’s growth outside of North America leverages the firm’s unique ability to address the dynamic needs of businesses. SoftLayer’s cloud, dedicated, and hybrid infrastructure solutions offer an option for enterprises of any size, from any industry, to outsource their data center infrastructure needs and focus their resources on operational needs rather than capital expenditures, regardless of their geographic locale.
