The multi-tier edge deployment in Atlanta builds upon Digital Realty as well as Vapor IO's announcement in June, emphasizing the integration of Vapor IO's Kinetic Edge architecture with Digital Realty's Network Hub Solution on PlatformDIGITAL.
FREMONT, CA: Digital Realty, a global provider of carrier- and cloud-neutral data center, colocation as well as interconnection solutions, along with Vapor IO, creators of the Kinetic Edge platform, the first completely-integrated hardware and software platform for edge colocation, exchange and networking services, and Hivelocity, a provider of global bare metal cloud services, declared the availability for developers to deploy core-to-edge workloads on Hivelocity's bare metal edge cloud, first in Atlanta, and soon in other cities across the nation.
The multi-tier edge deployment in Atlanta builds upon Digital Realty as well as Vapor IO's announcement in June, emphasizing the integration of Vapor IO's Kinetic Edge architecture with Digital Realty's Network Hub Solution on PlatformDIGITAL. Hivelocity, a Digital Realty customer, was capable of quickly expanding its bare metal cloud to Vapor IO's Kinetic Edge locations because of integration work already completed by Vapor IO as well as Digital Realty.
"Leveraging the joint solution available through Vapor IO's Kinetic Edge and Digital Realty's PlatformDIGITAL, we were able to lower costs and get to market quicker," stated Steve Eschweiler, COO of Hivelocity. "By using our existing control plane in Digital Realty's facilities to orchestrate machines in Vapor IO's data centers at the infrastructure edge, leveraging the integrated Digital Realty Service Exchange and Kinetic Edge Exchange networks for connectivity, we were able to quickly and cost-effectively extend our bare metal cloud to the infrastructure edge, where last-mile telco networks are aggregated."
"We designed this joint solution to combine the data center and networking infrastructure needed to enable cloud-to-core-to-edge applications," stated Cole Crawford, founder and CEO at Vapor IO. "Hivelocity's ability to simply and effectively extend its bare metal cloud to the edge in Atlanta is a perfect example of how we're making it easier for joint customers to deliver low-latency edge services that tie back to their regional and core workloads."
