Deploy, control, and manage all by yourself. Or all by API.

If we can’t automate it, we don’t offer it. Every offering on our platform—from servers and storage to firewalls, load balancers, and even our accounting system—is controlled by a single management system with its own API.

We’ve automated the deployment and management of everything. And we extend total access and control to customers through the same API, as well as through an easy-to-use Web portal and mobile applications.

Open API

Truly universal remote control.

The SoftLayer API controls everything we offer with more than 3,000 documented methods and 180 distinct services. It’s the foundation of our own internal management systems, customer portal, and mobile apps. And we give you complete access, so you can automate your SoftLayer solution to fit your unique needs.

With bare metal and virtual servers in a unified platform, we can do more with server images than you can imagine. Our Flex Images technology lets you move or scale between bare metal and virtual servers as your resource needs change. Our Image Import & Export tools let you bring your own image to SoftLayer, so you can migrate to SoftLayer with ease. And Auto Scale lets you automate adding and removing virtual servers with simple, flexible triggers that you create.
