SingleHop vs SoftLayer: What are the differences?
Developers describe SingleHop as "Enterprise-class, name-brand dedicated servers". SingleHop's bare metal dedicated servers offer a unique blend of on-demand computing and dedicated, predictable performance. By combining cloud-style automated deployment with physical dedicated servers, customers are able to deploy fully private computing resources in hours, not days or weeks. On the other hand, SoftLayer is detailed as "SoftLayer provides on-demand IT infrastructure, dedicated servers and cloud resources". SoftLayer dedicated servers give you options from entry-level single processor servers to quad proc, hex-core, and even GPU-powered workhorses. They're all deployed in real time via our portal or API.
SingleHop and SoftLayer can be primarily classified as "Dedicated Cloud Hosting" tools.
Some of the features offered by SingleHop are:
- Dedicated Resources
- Wide Range of Operating Systems
- Hybrid Capable
On the other hand, SoftLayer provides the following key features:
- 5TB public outbound bandwidth, standard
- 100Mbps network uplinks, standard
- More starting RAM in most servers

We use a mix of dedicated and cloud servers with SoftLayer and the service has been amazing. Great performance, great networking and for a really good price. The time of provisioning is sometimes longer than advertised, which can be a problem depending on your needs. Also while their API seems very powerful the documentation is not great.
