@SoftLayer my haiku is titled "young love": cloudlayer instance, with just a few clicks you get, turned on so quickly.

Hmm, Softlayer cloud is actually nice and has nice customization for IaaS, but still can't keep up with the great Windows Azure

Apologies for the outage this morning. Our datacenter @Softlayer had problems with networking hardware. https://t.co/lJCRpVQU

The site is back up and fully functional. Sorry about the downtime. The master database's network interfaces failed. @SoftLayer is on it.
