THE EDGE IS A NETWORK PROBLEM

The third act of the internet requires a high-performance, cost-effective and reliable network fabric that connects the edge to users and other networks with software-defined flexibility between every network node. That fabric is the Kinetic Edge Fabric.

CONVERGING WIRELESS AND WIRELINE

The wireless and wireline network worlds are separate, and today often converge only inside remote, centralized internet exchanges. In addition, the edge itself requires flexible, robust and performant network connectivity between edge sites and other network nodes to support the next generation of applications. Joining these disparate networks together is crucial to create the foundation needed to support the third act of the internet. Enter the Kinetic Edge Fabric.

The Kinetic Edge Fabric is the combination of physical fiber networks across each Kinetic Edge city, and granular software-defined controls to create the network infrastructure you need on top of this flexible foundation. With the Kinetic Edge Fabric connecting the Kinetic Edge, you can connect all of your Kinetic Edge availability zones via their own private network. Use our APIs or the Vapor Edge Portal to create real-time, virtual private networks connecting many data centers across the city. Manage and deploy as you want, with all the security and isolation you need.

By integrating both intra-edge and edge to core or internet connectivity, the Kinetic Edge Fabric is the solution to networking the edge, making it the real foundation of the Kinetic Edge itself.

Your Private Network

It’s your network. Your application won’t be affected by what others are doing so you can keep focusing on giving your users the best experience possible. Create dynamic virtual networks atop the Kinetic Edge Fabric fiber network.

Connect On or Off Edge

Configure your Kinetic Edge Fabric virtual private network to link all of your essential assets onto a single network. Not limited to Vapor IO facilities, you can configure connectivity to include other data centers or networks.

Security and Isolation

With the Kinetic Edge Fabric, you choose where your data goes. Configure one or multiple virtual private networks to support your security and isolation needs. You create your own topology atop our physical fiber.

Architected for Edge

Vapor IO’s Kinetic Edge Fabric has been purpose-built for flexibility, reliability and performance across the Kinetic Edge and to external locations. Our physical and virtual network infrastructure enables the most extreme low-latency applications.

A City-Scale Network

Only the Kinetic Edge, through the Kinetic Edge Fabric, provides the flexibility, reliability and performance needed for city-scale software-based high availability. With less than 1 ms of latency between Kinetic Edge sites, migrate workloads, working set data and user sessions between Kinetic Edge availability zones as required in real time based on environmental data.

The Edge Is A Network Problem

At its inception, the internet relied on a few centralized points to operate. As it developed, the internet spread further outwards, into regional facilities and CDNs. Now, these two acts have brought us to the third act of the internet, where the challenges we face now need the edge.

New devices, networks and applications such as autonomous vehicles, city-scale IoT and new generations of intelligent content delivery need dense edge data center colocation resources to support their low-latency performance requirements, as well as their cost and flexibility needs. Bringing compute, storage and network resources to the edge solves for data gravity, as more and more data is generated and digested at the network edge, closer than ever to its users.

But edge colocation alone isn’t enough. The edge is a network problem, requiring an entirely new approach to internet infrastructure. That’s why Vapor IO’s Kinetic Edge also incorporates unique SDN-based edge exchange and edge networking technologies, eliminating unnecessary latency between user and application to create the next generation of internet infrastructure.

Managing & Monitoring

VAPOR EDGE PORTAL

Control and monitor your deployments at the Kinetic Edge with Vapor IO’s web-based portal, which gives you everything you need to plan, manage and oversee your presence at the Kinetic Edge no matter the scale. Check equipment status, configure your network, file trouble tickets, and even schedule maintenance windows. This is your all-in-one tool for operating at the edge.

Remote Hands

Use our Remote Hands service to send skilled personnel to any of our Kinetic Edge locations. Our local in-region technicians will perform remote work at your direction, whether it’s hand rebooting a machine or swapping out a server. Monitor their progress remotely as needed.

APIs

Monitor and control your equipment and its environment with our APIs. Build automated operational tools to troubleshoot and respond to real-time conditions. Integrate with tools such as Slack and PagerDuty to send alerts and notifications to your team for analysis and response.

Solving For The Edge

The Kinetic Edge is the only solution truly solving for the edge. Vapor IO’s advanced proprietary technologies for edge exchange, edge colocation and edge networking allow the Kinetic Edge to support applications and users that are impossible to satisfy today, with its full-coverage solution for the edge. Solving for the edge is a network problem, and the Kinetic Edge is the solution.

Each element of the Kinetic Edge is purpose-built for the challenges we face in creating the next tier of local internet infrastructure to make the third act of the internet a reality. This is an internet that’s local in scope but global in impact, bringing applications, resources and networks as close as possible to their users, moving the internet beyond its regional presence to create the future.
