KVH Co., Ltd., Asia’s leading information delivery platform, announced October 10 it will launch a private cloud service from October 15, 2012 at its data center in Tokyo dedicated to cloud services, KVH TDC3. The data center facility has a seismically isolated structure, 766 square meters of server room space, and 640kw of maximum power capacity. The data center is directly connected to KVH’s optical fiber networks and Internet backbone.
Since June 2010, KVH has been delivering a cloud platform that leverages KVH’s own data centers and high-speed networks to meet the mission-critical needs of the financial industry. With the rapid growth of data volumes and advances in cloud-related technology, demand is shifting from multi-tenant public clouds to private clouds with higher security, performance, and control. KVH has expanded its private cloud capabilities to address these changes.
KVH Private Cloud services enable customers to use customized and dedicated cloud environments on a monthly basis without initial installation fees or needing to purchase or manage their own IT assets, regardless of order size. This service also separates the customer’s data in a dedicated environment, ensuring it cannot be impacted by other users, and allowing customers to maintain a high level of performance and set their own unique security policies to meet industry-specific compliance requirements. Moreover, customers can quickly and easily control their entire cloud environment through the user-intuitive KVH Cloud Controller.
KVH Private Cloud services can be leveraged in a broad variety of ways, including being used for corporate computing systems and platforms for content providers or SaaS vendors. Customers can flexibly select the location of their private cloud without being limited to KVH data centers.
KVH currently operates three data centers in the Tokyo area and one in Osaka, adding up to a total floor area of approximately 37,550 gross square meters. KVH focuses on delivering colocation services and IT management services within its data center solutions portfolio and will continue to strengthen its private cloud service offerings by leveraging its own infrastructure to grow the business.
