Vapor IO Delivers True Edge Computing with Project Volutus

New initiative utilizes Vapor Edge Computing to deliver co-location and data center as a platform services at the base of cell towers, accelerating the delivery of emerging edge applications including IoT, autonomous driving, decentralized machine learning, AR/VR and 5G wireless

Austin, TX – June 21, 2017 –  Vapor IO, the next generation platform for edge clouds, today announced Project Volutus, which enables cloud providers, wireless carriers and web-scale companies to deliver cloud-based edge computing applications via a network of micro data centers deployed at the base of cell tower sites. The company also announced today that Crown Castle, the nation’s largest provider of shared wireless infrastructure, has made a minority investment in Vapor IO to accelerate the project’s development and deployment.

Project Volutus is a co-location and “data center as a platform” service, powered by Vapor Edge Computing.  Project Volutus offers fully-managed micro data centers at the base of cell towers, literally at the true edge of the wireless network. It combines Vapor IO’s patent pending hardware and software technology with the nation’s extensive network of cell towers and dense metro fiber to build and operate self-driving, distributed edge data centers in major metropolitan locations.

“Zettabytes of machine to machine communication and new application types will require a shift in how the industry thinks about data centricity and the delivery of edge services,” said Cole Crawford, CEO and founder of Vapor IO. “Project Volutus is the most cost-effective way to deliver cloud applications that benefit from last mile wireless proximity and sub 10-millisecond round trip latency. By locating Vapor IO’s technology at tower locations and connecting to dense metro fiber, we will provide the fastest, most economical way for cloud providers, telecom carriers and web-scale companies to deliver next generation edge services in every major US city.”

In addition to supporting traditional cloud applications, Project Volutus allows carriers to incorporate virtual Radio Access Networks, including those based on Intel Corporation’s FlexRAN reference design, for speed and scale when upgrading their networks. By cross-connecting the radio network directly to edge services and the internet, Project Volutus eliminates multiple network hops and facilitates a new breed of low-latency edge applications.

Project Volutus: The Dawn of Vapor Edge Computing

Using a retail co-location model, Project Volutus offers carrier and cloud-neutral micro data centers at the edge of the wireless network, giving cloud providers, web-scale companies and mobile network operators the power, rack space, network capacity and remote hands they need to scale high performance services and applications quickly to thousands of locations.

“Edge computing will be a key enabler of the applications everyone is talking about, including autonomous driving, IoT, augmented and virtual reality, and 5G,” said Phil Kelley, senior vice president of corporate development and strategy for Crown Castle. “We believe our unique asset mix of approximately 40,000 tower locations and large metro fiber footprint is ideally positioned for a successful Volutus deployment.”

Project Volutus utilizes Vapor IO’s Vapor Chamber, the world’s first energy-efficient rack and enclosure system designed for edge environments. The Vapor Chamber is manufactured in partnership with Flex, the Sketch-to-Scale™ solutions provider that designs and builds Intelligent Products for a Connected World™. Native support for Intel Corporation’s FlexRAN reference design provides versatility plus scale, making it possible to upgrade carrier networks cost-effectively while bridging cloud and mobile data with unprecedented ease.

Project Volutus also utilizes Vapor IO software (which is based upon OpenDCRE, the open source telemetry system for remote monitoring and operations), as well as Vapor IO’s commercial packages (Vapor CORE and Vapor Compass) delivered as a managed service. This allows Project Volutus operations teams, as well as Project Volutus customers, to manage thousands of ‘lights out’ Vapor Edge Computing locations from remote operations centers.

Project Volutus allows for any cloud native stack to exist at the very edge of the network, making it easy to deploy applications at scale across thousands of micro data centers, weaving massive amounts of compute and cloud directly into the urban fabric.

Data Center as a Platform

Project Volutus combines edge co-location with remote operations, intelligent cross-connects to wireless networks, and direct fiber routes to regional data centers and peering interconnects. It provides unique point-to-point, multi-point and mesh tower-to-tower connections, bypassing the multi-hop high-latency backhaul of the legacy wireless networks and delivering low millisecond round trips.

With Project Volutus, operators can automate their infrastructure and make real time workload decisions based on actual tower conditions, including latency and radio frequency congestion, as well as optimize network handoff and offload. Project Volutus offers direct fiber connections to cloud provider data centers, regional interconnect points and custom facilities.

Vapor IO Adds Support for Redfish and Releases OpenDCRE v1.3

At Vapor IO, we’re passionate about building tools that help automate data center infrastructure, which is why we built OpenDCRE (Open Data Center Runtime Environment). OpenDCRE provides a securable RESTful API for monitoring and controlling data center and IT equipment, including reading sensors and server power control via power line communications (PLC) over a DC bus bar, via IPMI over LAN, and, as of version 1.3, via Redfish over LAN. It is designed to operate in both highly-centralized locations, such as today’s large web-scale datacenters, as well as in “lights out” edge locations, such as at the base of cell towers

As public and private clouds grow in complexity and expand into more locations, including highly remote “lights out” edge locations, operators are demanding ways to unify and automate the management of their increasingly diverse data center assets. Modern organizations are applying devops-like principles to physical infrastructure, and OpenDCRE helps operators with this task. OpenDCRE allows operators to build “scriptable infrastructure” and deploy “infrastructure as code” across all of their locations. With OpenDCRE, operators can build applications that monitor infrastructure and and make continuous adjustments in real time, with little or no human interaction.

Today we’re announcing OpenDCRE version 1.3, which includes a number of improvements, the most notable of which is beta support for DMTF Redfish, an emerging standard for managing servers at scale. Operators use OpenDCRE alone or in combination with Vapor IO’s commercial products—Vapor Chamber, Vapor CORE and Vapor Compass—to programmatically monitor and control their data center infrastructure.

Now Supporting Redfish

One of the main goals of OpenDCRE has been to unify the most popular data center control standards, including legacy control systems such as IPMI. Some newer servers are being shipped with Redfish, which is why OpenDCRE v1.3 now supports Redfish over LAN (in beta).

The Redfish additions to OpenDCRE v1.3 include:

What Else is New in v1.3?

Additionally, OpenDCRE version 1.3 includes the following improvements:

  • Generalizations to the underlying devicebus model. This makes it easier for Vapor IO and the OpenDCRE community to add support for new protocols and devices moving forward.
  • Dispatching from OpenDCRE endpoints to the new underlying devicebus model.
  • Improvements to the OpenDCRE configuration mechanism, which now supports default and override configurations.
  • Support for OpenStack’s pyghmi IPMI back-end, which replaces the custom C back-end in earlier versions of OpenDCRE. This will make it easier for OpenDCRE to provide robust IPMI support, benefitting from the OpenStack community’s momentum.
  • Various bug fixes and performance fixes.
  • Improvements to code organization, formatting, and documentation.
  • Dockerfile optimizations, making for more efficient pulls from DockerHub or other contain repositories.
  • Additional test cases added and existing test cases expanded.

OpenDCRE is Catching On

OpenDCRE is 100% open source and is available via a free GPL v2 license. It can be used with a virtually unlimited numbers of clusters, servers, and data centers—centralized, regional and edge—giving operators a uniform set of endpoints to monitor and manage all of their data center assets.

Operators are adopting OpenDCRE as their management interface of choice. Some servers, for example, can now be ordered with OpenDCRE built in, such as those in HPE’s Cloudline. Other servers might come with Redfish or IPMI built-in, which OpenDCRE supports out of the box. OpenDCRE is the only system that spans all of these new and legacy systems and provides a single RESTful API to operators and developers.

OpenDCRE is not only cost effective, but it is completely flexible and extensible. It has a generalized device interface that can be extended to easily support new standards and devices of all kinds (not just servers). It also has a one-to-many relationship with devices, meaning a single controller can efficiently connect to and manage multiple devices.

Special Thanks to Our Contributors

A number of people played key roles in delivering the OpenDCRE version 1.3 release, including two interns from Bennington College (Morgan MIlls and Linh Hoang) who wrote nearly all of the support for Redfish.

Here is the full list of OpenDCRE v1.3 contributors:

  • Andrew Cencini, Vapor IO
  • Erick Daniszewski, Vapor IO
  • Matthew Hink, Vapor IO
  • Klemente Gilbert-Espada, Vapor IO
  • Kyler Burke, Vapor IO

Vapor IO Launches Vapor Edge, the End-to-End Platform for Building Out IoT and Edge Environments

Company introduces end-to-end platform for operators building out edge environments to support emerging applications such as IoT, AR/VR, autonomous driving and high speed mobile apps

Vapor IO, the next generation platform for hybrid and edge clouds, today announced Vapor Edge, a complete end-to-end platform for building out IoT and edge environments. Entering the new age of computing, where infrastructure is driven by data, Vapor IO is working with cloud operators, telcos, real estate holding companies and some of the world’s most innovative enterprises to build out the next generation cloud with Vapor Edge.

“The cloud as we know it is changing,” said Cole Crawford, co-founder and CEO of Vapor IO. “For the last decade, it’s been dominated by large, centralized data centers. But there is an emerging class of applications—including IoT, virtual and augmented reality, and mobile apps—where centralized data centers simply won’t work because compute, storage and network capacity must be near the application or device. With Vapor Edge, we’re paving the way for a truly decentralized data center and enabling cloud computing at the edge.”

Putting Compute Capacity at the Edge of the Network

By putting cloud capabilities at the edge of the network, Vapor Edge substantially speeds up interactions, removing latency and reducing network and compute load back to centralized data centers. Vapor Edge can process vast amounts of data locally, efficiently sharing only the most important results with centralized servers. For low latency applications, such as autonomous driving and virtual reality, Vapor Edge makes it possible to operate at scale, as each micro-datacenter on the edge can respond to nearby devices in microseconds.

Vapor Edge allows operators to construct highly-automated command-and-control policies for optimizing workloads in edge environments, evaluating key parameters including latency, cost, security and privacy, then making real-time optimization decisions, including rescheduling workloads onto different machines, onto different edge nodes or onto different centralized or regional data centers.

“Vapor is taking a very sophisticated approach to enabling edge networks,” said Corey Bell, CEO of the Open Compute Project. “They are connecting to the underlying hardware in new ways to solve key challenges, such as remote operation and workload migration. This has always been a vision shared by the Open Compute Project and we are excited to see Open Compute hardware play a vital role in making edge computing practical, as customers deploy OCP accepted and inspired hardware in Vapor Edge environments.”

Vapor Edge Components

Vapor Edge consists of specialized software for remote operation and workload management, as well as patented hardware designs which are optimized for edge environments and manufactured by partners under license. Included are:

  • Vapor CORE: Operators use Vapor CORE software to remotely monitor and administer their Vapor Edge environments. Vapor CORE spans all of the centralized data center and edge machines, ingests hardware telemetry in real time, and provides operators with a way to remotely view and manage their edge capabilities.
  • Vapor Compass: Operators use Vapor Compass software to build highly-automated command-and-control policies for managing workloads in distributed edge environments. Vapor Compass makes real-time optimization decisions, including rescheduling workloads onto edge nodes or centralized data centers, based on policies, including latency and cost.
  • Vapor Chamber: Optionally, operators use Vapor Chamber designs to build out the physical environment for Vapor Edge. The Vapor Chamber is a revolutionary circular racking system for servers, designed by Vapor IO, which is licensed to manufacturers who sell and distribute the system. The Vapor Chamber is tightly integrated with Vapor Edge software, and is ideal for use in more hostile edge environments, such as in cell towers and on rooftops. It is self-contained, extremely energy efficient and well-suited for remote operation. Customers can also retrofit existing equipment into a Vapor Edge environment, with or without Vapor Chambers.

Vapor IO’s software is built atop the Open Data Center Runtime Environment (OpenDCRE), an open source protocol created by Vapor IO for monitoring and responding to data center hardware, software and environmental characteristics in hybrid and edge environments. Vapor Edge integrates with public clouds, such as Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure, as well as popular private clouds, such as OpenStack and VMware Vsphere, as well as with modern container-driven systems, such as Mesosphere’s DC/OS and the Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s Kubernetes.

First Deployments

One of the first deployments of Vapor Edge will be with Centrepointe, a data center company located in the Czech Republic, which has entered into an agreement to purchase Vapor Edge technologies from Vapor IO and has partnered with Vapor IO to build out a 200-megawatt data center locally, called DataHub Verne. DataHub Verne will be one of the most modern, green and efficient data centers built to-date, and will provide low-latency edge capabilities to Prague, Frankfurt and the surrounding areas.

“With the Vapor IO technology and the Vapor Edge software, we’re able to build out and operate one of the most sophisticated data centers in the world, with edge capabilities to Prague and Frankfurt,” said John Stotter, CEO of Centrepoint. “DataHub Verne, our data center being built around Vapor IO technology, will be a state-of-the-art 150MW data center with modern edge capabilities. It will operate more efficiently than a typical facility of its size, and will cost 20-30% less to build.”
