Why Does SoftLayer Rock????

October 5, 2010

So this blog may be a tad bit delayed, seeing that it is about HostingCon, but better late than never. Right?? During HostingCon, at the SoftLayer Happy Hour, we filmed customers, random followers, and employees to see Why SoftLayer Rocks. Here are the responses we got….

Why Does SoftLayer Rock? Because……

"I get 100% uptime with them and they make sure all my servers are up"

"They offer the best cloud storage in the business"

"They are the ambassadors of the industry and help our business grow"

"My server has never gone down"

Now the most common responses were from the random guests at the Happy Hour. Go figure!

"Cause they throw great parties"

"When you mix alcohol and weapons that could potentially poke an eye out (SoftLayer Rockets)….It’s always in good fun" But… I think the best responses came from the employees….

"Because it is the best company to ever exist" Why is that? "The automation, technology, innovation, and the COO" –Sam Fleitman

"Cause we have a butt ton of cool customers" – Steve Kinman

"The bald guy makes a lot of very cool people happy" –Sean Charnock

There are many reasons Why SoftLayer Rocks and we could ask everyone and will get a different answer. Now if you ask an employee most likely they will eventually mention in their statement "because of me". Here is why I think SoftLayer rocks….

SoftLayer is one of the fastest growing private companies (Inc 500/5000). SoftLayer offers customers everything at their fingers tips, especially now with the iPhone, Blackberry, and Android mobile apps. Besides everything that SoftLayer offers to customers, they are extremely good to their employees. Oh and another reason Why SoftLayer Rocks ‘because of ME!’ :-)

Lets here what more people have to say Why SoftLayer Rocks….Post a comment and tell us!
