Work on Kitely began in 2008, with the vision of enabling people to use virtual worlds as an on-demand utility. It took the company more than two years of intensive development until it was ready to start its public beta in March 2011. Kitely is now the leading provider of affordable high-performance OpenSim hosting solutions.

The venture was named IVC-online's Company of the Month for February 2009, while it was still in its infancy.

The anticipated arrival of consumer-friendly Virtual Reality hardware is driving many different organizations to develop competing solutions that are all vying to become the platform on top of which "The Metaverse" will be built. This will make it difficult for content creators to reach and support all their potential customers. To address this need, Kitely is now focusing on developing a cross-platform marketplace that will enable content creators to serve avatars from all across the Metaverse from a single online store.

While the Metaverse is still in its infancy, Kitely has already become the biggest commercial provider of OpenSim regions, hosting more than 6,400 regions (as of December 2014). Meanwhile, Kitely Market has become the leading marketplace serving the Hypergrid Metaverse.

Kitely virtual worlds have been used for training, education, collaboration, simulations, art exhibitions, machinima creation, theatrical performances, role playing, information centers, book promotions, 3D design, and entertainment activities.
