IBM to acquire SoftLayer

Jun 04, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Many years ago, I set up my website on a new service, EV1 Servers, that came highly recommended. January 5, 2007, to be precise, after my CSoft installation crashed and burned. Just yesterday, I wrote about how fickle internet services have become. And then today, "the ISP on which I hosted my own server has been purchased three times since I started with them (which is how I find myself a SoftLayer customer without even trying)." And now, today, again without even trying, I find myself an IBM customer. For the record, the service at EV1 was every bit as good as recommended. With each new acquisition, it got a little more distant and a little worse.
