The company has signed a lease for another 21,594 square feet of office space at Stanford Corporate Centre at 14001 Dallas Parkway near the Galleria Mall, which takes SoftLayer's Dallas footprint to about 145,000 square feet. SoftLayer doubled the size of its headquarters to 125,000 square feet of office space and planned to add 250 new jobs to bring the firm's total employment in Dallas to nearly 800 workers.

SoftLayer to Offer OpenPOWER Servers to Help Clients Better Manage Workloads in the Cloud
Mar 4 15
IBM announced that SoftLayer will offer OpenPOWER-based servers as part of its portfolio of cloud-based services. With the new offering, clients will be able to select OpenPOWER-based 'bare metal' servers when configuring their cloud-based IT infrastructure from SoftLayer. Leveraging the OpenPOWER Foundation design concept, the servers were developed to help clients better manage data-intensive workloads on public and private clouds. Increasingly cloud technologies, both private and public, are enabling organizations to extend existing infrastructure, inexpensively and quickly. Servers built on the OpenPOWER architecture are designed to facilitate that transformation. The offering will also leverage the rapidly expanding community of developers contributing to the POWER ecosystem as well as independent software vendors that support Linux on Power application development who are migrating applications from x86 to POWER-based architecture. Built on open technology standards that begin at the chip level, the new bare metal servers are built to assist a wide range of businesses interested in building custom hybrid, private and public cloud solutions based on open technology. The new OpenPOWER bare metal servers will join SoftLayer's growing stable of POWER-based systems. The company first deployed Power Systems in 2014 to support the IBM Watson cloud portfolio. Initially, the new servers will be available in SoftLayer'sDallas cloud center, with planned expansion throughout the world.
