SoftLayer Solution Architecture and Design is a three-day, instructor-led technical training class. Proof points from actual implementations are used to help you make architecture choices to design an effective solution on SoftLayer’s Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS).

For each workload, a structured design process will be followed, including

  • Analyzing business drivers and workload requirements
  • Making architecture decisions and justifying the choices
  • Designing the infrastructure
  • Creating the detailed design

The workloads – application hosting with e-commerce and social collaboration – have been selected because of common business application elements and workload characteristics that are pertinent across industries. Each workload infrastructure is designed to give you an extensive overview of SoftLayer’s capabilities, which you can use when designing your own IaaS solution.
