Our multi-tenanted IaaS platform has been rigorously standardized, monitored and managed to a high level of automation. These standard service “building blocks” provide a comprehensive solution for your requirements and allow you the flexibility of changing your infrastructure as your needs evolve. KVH has also collaborated with Colt Technology Services, an affiliated company, to offer a unified cloud platform across 10 sites in Europe and Asia. This VMware-certified vCloud Service platform enables you to significantly reduce the amount of time and resources spent on IT infrastructure management, and lets you focus on your core areas of revenue generation. KVH takes care of infrastructure performance while you retain full control of your data and applications.

The KVH vCloud Resource Pool provides a VMware-based virtualization environment. Customers use a vDirector-based portal to gain access and control their environment.

vCloud Overview

vCloud is an ideal platform for software development as it dramatically reduces the time required for the procurement of computing resources. A test environment can be created and logically separated from the production segment, and once development is complete, the environment can be returned to the resource pool for re-use. These savings on time and cost enable you to significantly improve staff productivity and efficiency.

With businesses increasingly facing the challenges of unpredictable product demand and irregular peaks in data traffic, KVH vCloud offers an adjustable resource pool that allows you to select the preferred size of your virtual environment and draw more capacity for existing IT services as and when your business demands resources.

KVH also provides KVH AIS (Agile Infrastructure Service) for complex systems that require fully-customized, dedicated cloud environments or advanced network architecture.
