Edge data centers and networks are like factories for computation. Bits move through digital assembly lines to be ingested, transformed and analyzed. The Kinetic Grid platform offers API access to its networking, colocation and interconnection infrastructure, enabling software systems to monitor conditions, troubleshoot operations, and optimize workload placement based on real world conditions.
The Kinetic Grid platform has been built from the ground up to support software-backed high-availability, a profoundly more powerful and efficient model of resilience. In software-backed high-availability, orchestration systems (like the open source Kubernetes or the commercially-offered VMware Telco Cloud) are configured to ingest real time data from the Kinetic Grid. These systems constantly monitor real world conditions to identify and predict failures, then enact proactive and reactive responses to those failures.
To support high-availability, each Kinetic Grid market has geo-distributed colocation facilities with redundant fiber routes. Each Kinetic Grid facility can be treated as a software availability zone, enabling the assignment of active and standby roles across a region.
