SoftLayer launches new data centre in Dallas

Features advanced dual-path network structure

By CBR Staff Writer

SoftLayer Technologies, a data centre services provider, has launched its second Dallas data centre named DAL05, which is located in the company’s recently completed headquarters.

DAL05 has a capacity for 15,000 servers, 24×7 onsite support, and multiple security protocols controlling entrance to the facility.

The company said that the data facility is fully connected to its data centers located at the Informat in Dallas, in Seattle, Washington, and in the Washington DC area, and to its network points of presence in seven additional US cities.

The new data centre facility features an advanced dual-path network structure, including redundant network interface cards (NICs) in every server.

SoftLayer said that the customers can select up to 2G of connectivity for any DAL05 server, select servers with up to 10G, and configure their networking resources to achieve all new levels of efficiency.

SoftLayer COO Sam Fleitman said that DAL05 provides greater bandwidth to individual computing units, and lets customers do things like designate separate paths for different traffic streams, optimising a server’s networking for its specific application.
