New! Now Serving Tex-Mex: Add a Thick Layer of Redis to Your IBM SoftLayer Cloud

IBM SoftLayer

Today I'm mighty pleased to announce the immediate availability of our Redis Cloud and Memcached Cloud services off IBM SoftLayer cloud's Dallas region. During the last couple of months we've been running there with a 'beta' tag and fixin' for our commercial launch.

Today, we're out of beta and have added new pay-nuthin' and pay-sumthin' plans to our pricing page under the IBM SoftLayer/Dallas cloud drop-down menu. If you want your SoftLayer application to be tough as a boot and quick as a hiccup, then I reckon you should read on.

There are a couple of things that make the IBM SoftLayer cloud really stand out. First, in terms of geography, it is conveniently located between the west and east coasts, making it the ideal location to serve the entire U.S. with good response times. Second, SoftLayer provides both bare metal and virtual servers in one IaaS. This means that your application has the best of both worlds: on the one hand it gets you performant dedicated hardware, and on the other hand it can use on-demand provisioning (to spillover bursts for example).

That's in fact exactly how we're operating our service there, and this combo makes the platform quite a looker in my book. And the smart folks at IBM agree. Mac Devine, the CTO of the IBM Cloud Services Division and Director of Cloud Innovation, says:

"Developers demand high performance computing power and speed from the public cloud. With the addition of Redis Cloud, the leading managed Redis solution on SoftLayer's cloud platform, developers will benefit from unmatched infrastructure and Garantia Data’s enterprise-class Redis so they can build scalable, highly available, and top performing apps.”

So if you want to be like Chuck Norris and kill two stones with one bird, get started immediately by signing up to our service, adding a free or paid IBM SoftLayer subscription to your account and creating a Redis Cloud instance or a Memcached Cloud bucket in seconds. All you'll need to do then is point your application to your resource's endpoint and start riding it.

Yeehaw!
