This partnership is a natural extension of that relationship, and benefits both companies as well as our Enterprise customer base, who continue to consume cloud-based services. Working with SoftLayer helps us build a strong community of interest for our new Cloud Connection Centers, while offering our customers direct access to the industry-leading mix of SoftLayer’s services.”
