SoftLayer Now Hosting 30,000 Servers

IT infrastructure provider SoftLayer Technologies had $60 million in revenue in the first six months of 2010, and expects to top $125 million for the full year, the company said Friday. SoftLayer also reported that its 6,000 customers have now deployed more than 30,000 servers in its data centers.

SoftLayer says it has now recorded 21 consecutive months of GAAP profitability and sequential growth. The company just moved into a new headquarters facility in Dallas, which will include three new data centers. SoftLayer also deployed new network points of presence in Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Miami, New York City, San Jose, and Seattle.

“Not only have we had record performance already this year, at the same time we’ve made significant preparations for years to come,” said Lance Crosby, Chief Executive Officer for SoftLayer. “We’ll experience the return on some of this year’s developments, like the launch of our seven additional network POPs, well into tomorrow. And we are securing our future through a new capital structure including a significant equity and debt investment.”
