SoftLayer and IBM to remain at arm’s length, execs say

It's likely SoftLayer won't ever be fully absorbed into IBM, execs say

IBM’s acquisition of SoftLayer has helped the firm refocus its efforts on infrastructure as a service, with IBM filling the professional services and legacy enterprise IT gap, said SoftLayer chief technology officer Marc Jones. According to Doug Clark, cloud leader for IBM UK and Ireland, the two firms are likely to continue remaining at arm’s length.
