VMware partners with Vapor IO on multi-cloud services grid to simplify the delivery of distributed 5G systems and real-time edge services

“Today’s internet is too static, too siloed, and too unpredictable to deploy latency-sensitive applications, such as immersive gaming,” said
The Multi-Cloud Services Grid is the first planned implementation of an Open Grid system as envisioned by the
The Multi-Cloud Services Grid will hypercompose resources at the precise moment when the application needs to consume them. For example, if an application requests the fastest possible path across the least expensive resources, the grid will assemble those resources when the application requests them and dismantle them when the application is done using them — returning them back to the grid for the next use.
Underpinning the Multi-Cloud Services Grid is VMware’s Telco Cloud Platform integration with Vapor IO’s Kinetic Grid platform. It is designed to stitch-together workloads across a latency-driven edge-to-cloud continuum, enabling highly immersive and real-time applications, including AR/VR gaming and cloud robotics, as well as disaggregated 5G systems.
“Vapor IO’s Kinetic Grid architecture, which connects across markets with Zayo’s dark fiber backbone, gives us the potential to span the continental
