INTRODUCING THE KINETIC EDGE

EXTEND YOUR SERVICE TO THE KINETIC EDGE

Leverage the fastest growing platform of edge colocation data centers to bring your service to the edge.

The Kinetic Edge Has Arrived

Billions of connected devices generating petabytes of data will require nearby edge cloud resources to deliver local, low-latency applications. From telco NFV and C-RAN to IoT, self-driving vehicles, and augmented reality, the Kinetic Edge offers the most comprehensive path to the future.

Vapor IO’s Kinetic Edge delivers the next generation internet by placing data centers at the base of cell towers and in other nearby locations. Utilizing our colocation facilities and interconnection services makes it possible to bring cloud-like services to the edge of the wireless network. With locations planned for all major US metro areas, Vapor IO is your partner for production-scale edge computing.

Edge Colocation

Vapor IO’s Kinetic Edge offers highly-secure data center facilities for deploying IT equipment at the edge of the wireless network. Located at the base of cell towers and nearby aggregation hubs, Kinetic Edge colocation makes it possible to place IT equipment as close to your users as possible. Network together multiple sites in software to blanket an entire city with compute and storage. Leased in quarter rack increments, the Kinetic Edge can accommodate thousands of Kw of equipment in edge locations.

Edge Interconnection

Vapor IO’s carrier-neutral edge meet-me rooms and software-defined networking put your equipment one hop from the wireless networks. Local breakout provides IP assignment at the edge and carrier-neutral interconnect makes it possible to bypass legacy backhaul. Configure and dynamically readjust interconnections at the Kinetic Edge via the browser-based Vapor Edge Portal or via the Kinetic Edge API. Vapor IO’s Kinetic Edge makes it possible to cross connect or peer with virtually any carrier, private data center, cloud provider, long haul data transit provider, and the internet.

Edge Networking

The Kinetic Edge software-defined networking delivers each customer a virtual private network that can span an entire region, connecting both Vapor IO and third-party facilities on the same network. The Kinetic Edge networking makes it possible to treat all of your machines as if they were in the same building and on the same network, even if they span dozens of edge locations. Vapor IO maintains redundant high-capacity fiber routes between all of its Kinetic Edge data centers, as well as to third-party facilities and interconnection points. This makes it the fastest and most reliable way to deploy edge capabilities that span an entire city or region.

Leveraging the Kinetic Edge

The Kinetic Edge—a nationwide platform for edge computing—provides the optimal way for cloud providers, web scale companies, and other enterprises to deliver edge applications at scale without building their own data centers or trenching their own fiber.

By bringing powerful compute, networking and data storage facilities to the edge of the wireless network, we substantially speed up interactions, remove large latencies and reduce network and compute load back to the centralized data centers. The resulting edge computing infrastructure is the foundation of the next-generation internet.

ONE HOP FROM WIRELESS NETWORK

Directly cross-connect to wireless carriers for the lowest latency and the most network visibility from the Kinetic Edge.

NEUTRAL-PARTY INTERCONNECT

Use our edge meet-me rooms, wholesale fiber and software-defined networking to route your traffic wherever it needs to go.

CITY-SCALE NETWORKING

Connect any number of sites in a region, including third party sites, to create a city-scale mesh of powerful data centers.

REAL TIME TELEMETRY

Consume real-time data feeds from our Synse API to make decisions about workload placement and environmental conditions.

SOFTWARE-DEFINED EVERYTHING

Use the Vapor Edge Portal and the Kinetic Edge API to monitor and control your equipment and network from any location.

APPLICATIONS & SERVICES
