  3. 3. 3 IBM Cloud: Think it. Build it. Tap into it. © 2014 IBM Corporation IBM SoftLayer stands apart in the market today by challenging common assumptions and providing the customer options. The initial cloud revolution was based on assumptions such as: All resources are virtualized All resources are shared But cloud computing needs have evolved. SoftLayer® embraces the idea that: … virtualization is a choice with a flexible set of options … resources can be shared, dedicated or mixed But you have the ultimate CHOICE
