Virtualized interconnection for hyper-local network exchange in edge environments
All Kinetic Edge markets connect to each other by virtue of a dedicated, private backbone powered by Zayo dark fiber. Zayo, owner of one of the world’s leading fiber networks, provides the Kinetic Grid with dedicated dark fiber strands that Vapor IO then “lights” with customized PAM4 optics to provide carrier-grade backbones to Kinetic Grid customers. Vapor IO incorporates these long-haul backbones into its software-defined network, allowing customers to provision customized, dedicated, and flat L2 networks across as many sites and markets as needed.
Kinetic Grid customers can automate operations. Software-defined telemetry provides real-time information to contextualize and automate activities, such as load balancing of network traffic, optimizing workload placement, and automating resilience through software-based high-availability. Kinetic Grid customers can build an automated workload solution using open APIs that integrate with Vapor IO’s software-controlled platform. Real-time metrics let software systems place workloads across strategically-located servers to deliver high-performance applications, including those that must be within microseconds of customer premises, wireless towers, cable headends and mobile devices.
All of Vapor IO’s systems are designed to be operated with only minimal human intervention. Software-defined systems and open API’s allow Vapor IO to remotely operate the critical infrastructure in programmatic ways. The Kinetic Grid platform has been designed for automated observation and control. These cost savings are passed on to customers.
