We have a customer with a QoS network who is considering procuring an interconnect to SoftLayer. Will QoS markings be honoured and/or unaltered through to the Cloud and back again?
Theoretically, if you had an interconnect to SoftLayer, you could tag your packets leaving the codec to the Cloud servers, however, right now, our Cloud servers do not obey QOS. So you could tag the traffic on its way there, but would be stripped on the return. However, currently we do not have a way for customers to have a direct connect to Softlayer/Cloud. We are working diligently on that though.
