KVH has announced a new service called “KVH etherXEN for SoftLayer” that provides customers a dedicated Ethernet network connection from their own IT infrastructure and data centers to IBM’s SoftLayer cloud services.
KVH etherXEN for SoftLayer is a guaranteed private network that brings enterprise customers new opportunities for creating hybrid-computing solutions that merge private infrastructure with SoftLayer’s cloud environments on dedicated bare metal servers. This service will be available in December.
The demand for advanced hybrid cloud environments has been steadily increasing as cloud users want to connect public cloud, private cloud and dedicated IT resources to create the computing environment that best fits their needs.
To address this growing trend, KVH has been offering since 2012 highly cost effective, reliable, and secure dedicated private network connections to Amazon Web Services (AWS). With this new private network service connecting to SoftLayer, KVH is expanding the hybrid cloud options it provides to its enterprise customers.
