We present new integrated services offered by VisIVO, a framework for exploration of large-scale astrophysical datasets. VisIVO was established in 2005 and its core functionality developed within the VO-TECH project. The framework supports high-performance, multidimensional visualization and complies with the standards of the International Virtual Observatory Alliance, making it interoperable with VO data repositories. We describe the new features of the VisIVO Desktop and the recently developed VisIVO Server tools. The latter is a command line application for intuitive visual discovery with 3D views being created from data tables, and it can be installed easily on any web server with a database repository. Its defining characteristic is support for very large data sizes with no fixed limit on dimensions. We also describe a preliminary version of VisIVO Web that will allow users to upload their own datasets for analysis and exploration. More details can be found on the VisIVO website1, where it is possible to download the tool, and use the VisIVOWeb site.
