InFlight Cloud Platform from Envision

Learn About Our Cloud


Envision's InFlight Cloud PlatformEnvision's InFlight Boundless Cloud Platform provides unparalleled flexibility and high-performance from a local provider with whom you can build a strong, personal relationship.

The Boundless Cloud platform is built on industry-leading hardware and software, and is hosted in a datacenter with SOC2, SOC3, PCI DSS, and other certifications.

Designed from the ground up as a multi-tenant hosting platform, it can serve many different use cases, including:​
(1) Primary production environment​
(2) Business continuity / off-site replication​
(3) DevOps, testing, and staging​
(4) Hyper-local private or hybrid cloud​
(5) On-ramp to other cloud services

Recognized with a "Better Way Award for Cloud Innovation" at Dell World 2014, the InFlight Boundless Cloud is also geo-disparate, with locations in Boston, MA, Providence, RI, Chicago, IL, and - coming soon - Las Vegas, NV. You can use any location as a primary site, a secondary site, real-time replication target, and more. Additionally, because InFlight Chicago is enabled with VMware’s extensible networking technology - NSX, customers can maintain workloads in both their local and Boundless Cloud environment and potentially move between the sites in real-time.
