From time to time, I have posted a review here on the level of service from SoftLayer. I'm not going to post yet another extensive positive review of them....instead, how many of you have seen their new mini portal?
I'm curious to hear feedback from those of you who have used it. Personally I have been playing with it for a few days now and it is awesome. Submit and update tickets from your PDA. Check bandwidth usage of your servers as well as reboots via IPMI.
GlobalCrossing should be put in the next couple days and from my discussions with them, remote reboot strips to go along with IPMI reboots. I'm sure the remote reboot strips will be integrated into the mini portal as well.
The development on their portal keeps getting better. Keep up the good work Dorian and the dev staff.

Just for your information they finished adding GlobalXing last night and traffic is starting to be routed by it. The mini portal is very nice and useful. As for the remote reboot strips that will be done mid Jan I was told, when all servers have had the strips added and they will have coded it into the panel.

There new mini portal rocks. I just used it on my Treo 700w and its very nice. Simple and quick. You can open/check/close support tickets, check bandwidth, and reboot any server from the portal! Very Slick!
I only have to say that they´re allways bringing some new utiliy, have you check the nessus scanner inside softlayer control panel ?
I think is a great provider, I only really hope that don´t grow up too much
and start having a bad support, I have a server with them and has been great,
also I purchase the "Business Continuance Insurance" $5/mo so if you get attacked by DDOS or another threat and your bandwith go over your quota you wont pay anything...
I think that´s really a good way to take care customers...
