Find out if Softlayer compatible with traditional software and data.
- [Instructor] All right, now on to IBM SoftLayer.…Couple of things that are important to this product.…IBM purchased SoftLayer, which was a public cloud provider,…to get their public cloud going.…It did that several years ago.…So, initially IBM had their own cloud…and they swapped in SoftLayer and had to actually port…or migrate their existing customers…who were using the IBM cloud over to the SoftLayer cloud…because that was their new strategic direction.…SoftLayer hasn't done as well in the market…as I think IBM would've hoped…and I think that's a major factor…is that Amazon web services is in the space…and is actually kind of setting expectations that SoftLayer,…and to a lesser extent, Google are kind of unable to get to.…
So, IBM is unable to spend the money that it needs to…to acquire the technology and build the technology…to compete with the likes of AWS…and to a lesser extent, Microsoft.…Adoption has been slow, with AWS and Azure leading the way…in features and functions…and this is something that's probably going to carry on…
