SoftLayer IBM 还是一个好选择吗？

有些用户质疑我们为什么要迁移？其实这是非常无奈的选择，主机托管服务身处一个变化非常快的环境里，今天你的网速还飞快，明天你就变蜗牛了。 SoftLayer 曾经是香港为数不多的提供快速和大容量的带宽的商家（曾经是唯一靠谱的选择），但 2016 年 4 月他们改变了路由，电信线路的ping 从 80 ms 飙升到 300 ms，用户的数据需要从美国绕道。对此 SoftLayer 是这样解释的：
SoftLayer continuously analyses and evaluates the way in we deliver services to our customers in order to bring the best possible combination of performance and price in the market. In particular we have continued evaluating the connectivity services we provide from our data centers in Tokyo, Singapore, and Hong Kong into mainland China through Chinese providers and have continued to see that this service does not provide a good cost-benefit proposition for our customers given the current cost point of these connections. We have elected to discontinue the use of these direct circuits into mainland China effective immediately. We have begun moving traffic off these links from our Hong Kong, Singapore, and Tokyo locations which may result in some customers in those locations noticing increased latency due to the traffic shift away from the direct circuits into circuits provided by other local vendors in region. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and / or your customers.
