KVH, a leading pan-Asian data center and network operator, partnered with Siaras to implement a multi-layer deployment of OpenStack in order to better address the stringent needs of its high-end financial industry customers. First, KVH implemented OpenStack-based private hosted cloud data centers as it began the process of moving away from its legacy VMware-based private cloud offering. But KVH and Siaras took things a step further. In order to allow enterprises to utilize both OpenStack and VMware date centers as well as public cloud services from Amazon Web Services (AWS) and IBM SoftLayer, KVH built an overcloud using Siaras cloudScape, a carrier-class hybrid cloud management platform based on OpenStack..
The result is an OpenStack "meta cloud" that allows KVH enterprise customers to place workloads in a broad variety of OpenStack and non-OpenStack "underclouds". This session will explore how the multilayer cloud infrastructure was built and how KVH customers are benefiting form it.
