Vapor IO to Enable 5G Services on Shared Infrastructure via Google Anthos and the Kinetic Grid
LAS VEGAS, June 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Vapor IO, creators of the Kinetic Grid™ Platform, and the fastest growing company for intelligent edge-to-edge colocation, exchange and networking services, today announced it is integrating with Google Cloud's network, as well as its partners' networks, and Anthos. As a participant in Google Cloud's edge and iSV ecosystem, Vapor IO is bringing the benefits of Google Cloud to the telco edge via its software-driven, intelligent and automated infrastructure solution specifically designed to lower the cost and complexity of edge-to-edge applications. Together, Google Cloud and Vapor IO are enabling customers to deploy Google Cloud's Anthos on the Kinetic Grid platform with multi-sourced servers. This brings the power and convenience of Kubernetes and Google Cloud to the edge and delivers intelligent, autonomous infrastructure to communications service providers.
"As telcos virtualize their network functions while looking for more cost-effective and agile ways to deploy next generation wireless infrastructure, platforms like Google Cloud's Anthos become a key part of the equation," said Cole Crawford, founder and CEO of Vapor IO. "By delivering Anthos on Vapor IO's Kinetic Grid platform, communications service providers can deploy 5G RAN and MEC services in a multi-cloud, shared-infrastructure environment capable of delivering solutions that require ultra-low latencies."

By leveraging Google Anthos, operators can get a consistent managed Kubernetes experience across all of their environments as well as the flexibility of using their own servers or servers proided by third parties, including Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services.
"As connectivity at the network edge increases, businesses with edge presences can increasingly benefit from cloud capabilities and applications, delivered securely and with low latency on 5G and other networks," said Tanuj Raja, Global Head, Strategic Partnerships at Google Cloud. "We're excited to partner with Vapor IO to help communications service providers deliver cloud-native applications and capabilities to these customers, across multiple networks and infrastructure."
An Edge-to-Edge Platform for the Internet We Need
Built upon Vapor IO's award-winning Kinetic Edge® architecture, currently being deployed in 36 U.S. cities, the Kinetic Grid combines software-driven networking, colocation, interconnection, and intelligence into a comprehensive, carrier-neutral platform. Because of its platform-level integration, customers can certify once and deploy everywhere.
